The entity is a ghostly presence amid an even ghostlier absence. This is truly distressed real estate.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 28, 2012
A run of the mill horror flick that gets worse and worse as it progresses
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Something lacking either body heat or visceral suspense.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 27, 2012
It's simply one of the worst horror movies I've ever seen in my life; such a waste of time being in that theater. It's so wholly awful it's almost an acheivement how bad it is.

For casual viewers desiring a few scares, some suspense and a sustained sense of dread and malevolence, you could do worse.

Lights flicker; soap and cactuses blacken; claw marks appear; icky molds gather like hornet nests.

Might give you a restless night, but only because you fell asleep in the theater.

The Apparition is not a great or even good haunted-house movie, but it does have the advantage of a memorable setting.
August 26, 2012
Abysmally dreadful! One of the worst miscalculations of the year.

Between Lincoln's ineptitude and the vacant prettiness of Greene and Stan, "The Apparition" becomes just a pile of false starts and dead ends that never build to anything truly frightening.

Scary bad.

The Apparition takes a potential paranormal romp and robs it of its purpose.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 24, 2012
...one of those late summer time-wasters that - like the film's spirit - appears out of nowhere, hopes to grab you (or, at least, your wallet) and then vanish again.

August 24, 2012
The bare-bones framework of an utterly generic horror story, devoid of thrills, jolts or even an interesting hook.
Full Review | Original Score: D

'Apparition' is unfocused and overdeveloped. [It's] bogged down with heavy exposition, lack of rules, and a lackluster performance from Sebastian Stan.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 24, 2012
What actually happens in the movie seems to be left over from some kind of rigorous cutting session. It's less of an arc than a flatline.

If you enjoy laughing at bad movies with friends, then sure, have a good time watching it this weekend. Otherwise, stay away.

There's a whole new genre of scary movies that might more accurately be called borey movies.

The movie loses goodwill early on by killing an adorable dog, resulting in a lack of an identification point, since the canine has better intuition than the humans.

The soulless-ness of their empty plot of track homes and super-store existence invokes both Poltergeist and Employee of the Month.
