The Apparition Reviews

August 31, 2012
This horror movie from Warner Bros. is nothing special, but it's nice to see a modest genre entertainment buoyed by a major studio's resources.

The entity is a ghostly presence amid an even ghostlier absence. This is truly distressed real estate.

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.

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.

Mild scares and a go-nowhere climax haunt this suburbs-set debut.

If you listen closely enough while things go bump in the night during The Apparition, you might also hear the scraping of barrel bottoms.

It's a potentially creepy setting that would give an innovative director a chance to do a lot with a little. Unfortunately, Lincoln isn't one of those.
