The Apparition Reviews
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.
I have no idea what i just watched... but damn Greene looked good!

My Advice: Leave it alone and it will do no harm
When frightening events start to occur in their home, a young couple, Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feed on their fear and torments them no matter where they to run. Their last hope Patrick (Tom Felton) who is an expert in the supernatural, but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.
Sigh, where do I begin? The Apparition is one the worst horror films I have ever having the pleasure to sit through. I never seen a horror film that is monotonous in every way. Is The Apparition scary? No, it is really isn't. In fact, I could see the jump-scares coming every minute of the film.
The script of the film is really abysmal. It causes the characters to do things that a normal person will never do. It was so bad that I questioned how did the script get pass the studio.
And no acting is no better. No one gives a decent performance in this film. No one not even Tom Felton which is so sad because he was good in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Harry Potter series. Ashley Greene on the other hand, I expect a bad performance out her because she was in the Twilight series. And no that is not saying much. And Sebastian Stan wasn't much better either so yeah.
The ending yet again is just insulting. Why is it insulting? Because it is pretty much spoiled in the trailer. After seeing that "ending," I never felt more insulted in my life.
At the end of the day, The Apparition was so bad (and yes it really was) that I being to question why Warner Bros. want to release this drivel across the world. Besides the mediocre effects, that does not save the film from being terrible. And compare to The Apparition, The Devil Inside isn't that bad now. Plus, The Devil Inside is up there with The Exorcist, Halloween (the original), and The Nightmare on Elm Street (again the original) as one the scariest horror films of all time (yeah, not really).
On almost every level, The Apparition is an utter failure. Thankfully, it did not make its budget back otherwise we would have gotten a sequel to this dreadful nonsense. Avoid The Apparition unless you like to be bore out of your mind.
