THE APPARITION - Blu-ray review

moviemet.com
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I like a good ghost story, but "The Apparition" is nothing like a good ghost story. It's more like a Syfy Channel show where they try to scare people in a darkened room.

The Apparition (2012)

9 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Although it concludes on an interestingly grim note, there's just too much nonsense and confusion bouncing around the picture to successfully land its scares. It's tough to be terrified when one is completely disinterested. Did you find this review helpful?

  • Conclusion: Making his feature-length debut, Todd Lincoln makes great use of surround sound technology to generate scares in 'The Apparition,' but he fails to establish a story that engages the audience.

  • Conclusion: For nearly an hour, The Apparition is an adequate, if unoriginal, entry to the large class of haunted house cinema. When it realizes it's got to do more than just build tension, it falls apart.

  • Excerpt: The Apparition’s something-crossing-over-into-our-world plot might not break new ground, but it’s far from the worst idea for a movie I’ve ever heard. In fact, there are quite a few details about the film that really work. The camera angles are frequently interesting.

The Apparition

AV Club
24 August 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s an art to making a horror movie with limited resources, one that involves suggesting danger rather than showing it and building tension out of virtually nothing happening. But sometimes suggestions just hang in the air pointing nowhere and virtually nothing happening feels like just that.

Review: ‘The Apparition’

Variety
23 August 2012
  • Summary: This enervating muddle of paranormal nonsense manages the difficult feat of seeming frenzied and lethargic all at once.
