I'd also like to borrow a bit of noire lighting ideas from Val Lewton.
This kind of shot, if you removed the figure at the stop of the stairs, is very evocative of Asian cinema as DOP Christopher Doyle likes to point out.

The RETRIBUTION is a ghost story.
Ben, a newspaper reporter, is lead by a ghost wanting to avenge her own death, but Ben's idea of revenge differs greatly to hers.
Part Film Noir part EC Horror comics, the film will combine live action with animation to move in and out of our world and the ghost realm.
Here is some examples from Val Lewton films to give an impression of how the live action sequences will look.
The Seventh Victim
Isle of the Dead
