I am still confused as all hell about what Ramsleys intention really were. It would appear as if he was trying to lift the curse on the mansion. Which if i remember correctly was keeping all the ghosts from going on to the next life. But as we see after the curse is lifted, Ramsleys next destination was Hell. SO why on earth would he want to lift the curse, the only thing i could think of was he didnt know that he was headed to Hell, but i dont know, it still seems kinda outta whack
As you say, Ramsley probably doesn't know what the 'next life' contains, so he won't know that he's headed straight for Hell. But as well as that, he believes he was doing the right thing by killing Elizabeth, keeping it from Gracey, tormenting Evers and killing Sarah. He probably wouldn't put himself down as a bad guy, even though he is transparently evil.
