Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
Once You Believe You Die
When frightening events start to occur in their home, young couple Kelly and Ben discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run.
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?
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...
I seriously wish I could give this a zero. I knew I would hate this film, and sure enough I did. There is literally no effort put into this film in terms of everything it has, whether it be the scares, acting, and directing. To define the "scares" in this film, they're composed of things either moving an inch or opening on their own in a very slow manner, and occasional spouts of weird noises. However, there's about zero tension during the scenes and the characters have the most lifeless reactions to anything that's suppose to be scary. Essentially there is nothing redeeming in this effortless horror film that just takes every technique used in modern horror movies today, but…
Once you believe this film exists, you die.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Okay I expected it to suck, but not this much.
Ashley Greene is absolutely beautiful; that's her sole purpose for her involvement in the film. Whilst all the 'horrors' unfold in The Apparition, the filmmakers still want you thinking you'd like to bang her, and in that department it succeeds.
The poster provides a HUGE spoiler as well as fundamentally lying to the audience from the get-go (you'll know what I mean if you bother to waste your time and watch this one).
Plus Draco Malfoy is in it; couldn't he of just performed a Patronus or something to rid the house of spirits? Typical fucking Slytherin...
Is it just me or the poster looks like the grudge poster. This movie is not scary okay I got that out of the way so let's move on. The acting is terrible and it is not scary at all.
The worst "big budget" horror I have ever seen in my life. If you can logically persuade me of any positive quality of this film, I will send you £5
it was the writing that made it so, so bad.
also, i'd like to know exactly who was responsible for the hair for ben (stan), and give them a very stern talking to because that disaster was the real horror of this film.
easily one of the worst written films i've ever seen, but i watched it for sebastian, so 1/2 a star for his face.
It's kinda fun watching this and pointing out from which movie literally every aspect has been shamelessly, lifelessly lifted.
Attains near-adequacy thanks to an uneasy mood sustained by suitably spooky shots of a sparkling day-glo suburban sanctum rising and roaring ominously from within the rolling, photogenic hills of Southern California, but too bad about the people and the dialogue and the faint whisper of a ready-made idiot plot. A perversely generous person could praise the material for being near-abstract - no plot beats to speak of, just the same beat, struck again and again, with some modest escalation of the rhythm near the end. With a couple of false endings handled so desultorily that you can practically see the movie shrug apologetically as they happen.
I was really hoping this would be decent, because I really want Tom Felton to be successful. And while he did fine, the plot and story was poorly conceived and poorly executed. Tom's chilling voice over at the end about the entity has been studying us, and is adapting based on what it learns from us is very interesting, and has a ton of potential, however, there was not a single indication of any of this during the entire film. I think it got off to a bad start and took too long to get to this interesting element.
We know the conventions of the horror genre- you don't have to hold our hand for the first hour.
Overall, disappointing as shit. Especially bc I just saw Oculus and I thought that was one of the best crafted paranormal horror film in decades.
Erinnert ihr euch an dieses supergruselige Experiment in den 70ern, bei dem Studenten einen Geist beschworen haben und es ihnen danach nicht gut erging? Hey, lasst uns das wiederholen!
Oops, da ist wohl unsere Freundin bei unserer Geisterbeschwörung, die überraschenderweise supergruselig war, von einer Wand gegessen worden. Dabei hatten wir doch High Tech Equipment von Apple.
Egaaal, machen wir's noch mal, das ist ja jetzt ein paar Jahre her und ich habe gerade nichts anderes zu tun. Also los, weil es so lustig war! Und diesmal machen wir ein Tor auf, weil dieser Geisterdämon inzwischen sicher ein Netter geworden ist.
Ach verdammt. Wie konnte das nur schief gehen. Sollte ich nun sterben, geht in meinen Bunker, denn der ist solange…
