Once You Believe You Die
Plagued by frightening occurrences in their home, Kelly and Ben learn that a university's parapsychology experiment produced an entity that is now haunting them. The malevolent spirit feeds on fear and torments the couple no matter where they run. Desperate, Kelly and Ben turn to a paranormal researcher, but even with his aid, it may already be too late to save themselves from the terrifying presence.
I wish I didn’t have to continually lament the state of modern horror but it really is in a sorry state. Todd Lincoln’s debut feature continues this worrying trend of limp terror and cheap jump scares as a young couple are terrorised by supernatural mould (the horror!).
Sebastian Stan and Ashley Greene move into their first home together only to discover death and decay has followed them after an earlier college experiment unleashed a malevolent entity into their lives. What follows is the familiar modern trend of loud bangs, dumb decisions and flat atmosphere.
It comes as little surprise that this tired and tension-free film only managed a DVD release here in the UK. Although arguably no worse than a…
"Your house killed my dog"
Stupefyingly bad and insulting on countless levels, The Apparition is a manifestation of everything wrong with not only the genre of horror, but movies in general. What a pathetic little marvel.
Letterboxd, you should have a zero star rating option. This is actually one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
The Good: Ashley Greene. Video game Blanka is cool. Costco: the land of never-ending supplies and samples.
The Bad: Ashley Greene. '94 movie Blanka is not cool. Costco: the land of never-ending lines. Molds. Fucking saguaros. Dullest. Horror flick. Ever.
The Bottom Line: This was supposed to be scary? No, forget that. This was supposed to be a movie?
Here is proof that I watch too many damn movies. It took almost 40 minutes to realize that I had seen this weak haunted house movie before. I did not like it then and I do not like it now. According to my records I watched this movie in December 2013....well since then I have watched 1284 more movies. During that time I am happy to report I had forgotten most of the movie....hopefully it will be as quickly forgotten now that I have seen the movie twice.
So very very bad. This movie has no ending. In fact, it seems like it has no 2nd half even. Things suddenly conclude midway, just as you think things are finally going to be explained! Yes, it's that bad!!! When the credits started rolling I was like, "HUH?!?!?!?!" That's it?! That was the end?!" But yes, it was. There wasn't even anything after the credits. I remained seated for a full 30 seconds stunned, wondering if I too had been deceived by the "apparition" we never found out more about.
A good looking, yet generic little horror movie which suffers from quite some flaws unfortunately. It did have some good ideas and some scary parts, but the movie as a whole leaves much to be desired because of its rushed start, bad acting, stupid script, unfitting soundtrack and lame ending (sponsored by Coleman tents apparently?!). I did like the science approach to the paranormal happenings and i thought Tom Felton (in contrary to the two main characters) did pretty wel in this flick. But that is unfortunately all there is to it. Watch at your own risk...
Spoiler alert, but THEY LEFT THEIR PET LIZARD ALONE IN THE HOUSE. WHO IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF THAT PRECIOUS CREATURE NOW? NO ONE. Honestly, lizards should be everyone's #1 priority.
Best parts of the film: Seb Stan feeding the lizard, and the part when Seb Stan was shirtless.
That guy is Bucky?
Shitty pile of shitty shit
It was dumb, and I never bothered finishing it.
I tried to watch this again since I never finished it, but it was still dumb and it only got dumber, so I think I still didn't finish it.
Inept, bland, generic, pointless, and boring
La Fotografiá luce profesional (Lo único positivo que se puede encontrar) pero el Guion esta lleno de personajes superficiales con un concepto desarrollado a medias e ilógico, malos diálogos y exposición sin sutileza. Un Elenco sin química que no aporta nada -Ashley Greene solo luce atractiva frente la cámara- y un Director que no puede concebir una efectiva secuencia de horror, suspenso o escena alguna. Pésimo film.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
In the world of ghost-themed horror movies, The Apparition is about as close to a nothing experience as you’re likely to get. Some might say this about the Paranormal Activity franchise; however, here there is infinitely less tension, talent or effort. It practically evaporates from existence even as it plays.
The plot in The Apparition is both astonishingly simple and, yet, is totally underwritten. We basically follow a charisma-free couple, bland Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan, as the move into a house, owned by Greene’s mother, in a new development; it’s so new, only one other house is occupied despite rows of highly-desirable real estate. No prizes for guessing that soon after their arrival a paranormal presence makes itself known…
seb deserved better than this mess .
