What to know

critics consensus

The Apparition fails to offer anything original, isn't particularly scary, and offers so little in the way of dramatic momentum that it's more likely to put you to sleep than thrill you. Read critic reviews

    Okay, so now fair warning, this is a minor-spoiler, but, I really wouldn't worry about that seeing as I'm going to preface it by recommending you don't watch The Apparition. In the 3rd act, there are some pretty cool scenes were things like ends up spliced through walls and such. Those parts were actually semi-cool. Everything else about The Apparition is a big, stupid, boring mess.

    It's exactly what you think it will be. No better or worse than any other straight to dvd horror movie. Felt like watching something creepy with a few scares and this delivers. I think this movie has been unfairly panned. While it's not a masterpiece, it does make sense and, honestly, do you usually rent an unheard of horror movie for the great acting? As it happens, cast is fine. Ashley Green is a decent actress, got to admit, she and the boyfriend are both so pretty it does feel a bit like an advert at first, but again, that's typical in this genre. Tom Felton is pretty good as well. End credits are very nice to look at also. I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to run out and purchase this, but if it happened to be on TV, I don't think it's a total waste of an hour and a bit. (Not all that long either at under 80 minutes).

    I didn't think this was as bad as others said it was. It was creepy and suspenseful.

    "Apparition" is the type of movie that makes you appreciate other movies, that you otherwise take for granted. This is kind of like "Paranormal Activity", only with a budget and zero of the creativity. "Activity" may not be a great horror movie, but when it came out it was inventive and unique. This is a rip off, and a very bad one at that. It's about a couple who are haunted in their home by a presence that was summoned during a college experiment. The acting is horrible, the story is generic, and the execution is poor. There is long stretches of just "spooky" music that doesn't move the story along, or provide any real suspense. All this movie made me want to do was re-watch the first "Paranormal Activity". If your a fan of horror or movies in general, you will probably be disappointed with this.
