In a summer devoid of horror movies, one would hope that maybe there's ripened fruit for thrillseekers and horror junkies this August. 'The Apparition,' which is one of two high profile horror titles at the end of this summer, is unfortunately not the saving grace for genre fans.
'The Apparition' starts out strong with a very nice build, and leaves plenty of questions which could have led to some great set pieces. However, the film's short running time ruins the pace by leaving you with all the money shots first and an uninspired, drawn out ending sequence that falls flat and wreaks of laziness. In other words, this movie could have done wonders with its premise, but instead becomes a case of what seems to be severe writer's block; after an hour, you'll start to see the creativity wane worse than co-star Tom Felton's post-Harry Potter career.
Final thought: I'm sure this film will have a very long life on cable so don't let it scare 10 bucks out of your pocket just yet.

They had an apparition this movie would be good enough to release at the theatres. This was horrible, bad acting, cheesy dialog..just a bad movie. In four months you will see it at best buy, completely stocked and for five bucks.

Story line was weird and absurd, with no really good foundation. It was not at all what I expected, more like a poor-man's ripoff of the "Paranormal" series. I have to say that the trailer is well put together, taking a scary few seconds here and there and making it look like it might be a really good horror flick. Not.

The main concept of the movie was good, but the ending was horrible. It was mainly for teenagers if you ask me. The acting was good and the camera wasn't one of those shaky films. I honestly think it's not worth it. Just wait to go rent it at block buster. I might be 15 but I know my horror movies... Stick with The Amityville Horror.
