Excerpt: The only thing I can do is shake my head after watching this film. Is this what horror movies have become now? What happened to the good old days of character development, plot, characters you care about and most importantly, being scared? Does "horror" mean "fall asleep" now? The AQ and PQ were great, but that does not make an awesome movie. Bland storyline, stiff acting, this was better off made for T.V.
Excerpt: No wonder it had limited release in the theaters - this movie SUCKED! I wanted to like it; I really did. But it was boring and dull and failed to grab me. Not to mention, it never really showed anything. Not scary and not exciting. Just blah. Good audio and video.
Excerpt: The video on this movie was very crisp and clear throughout, no problems whatsoever, the audio however was not very good, I was constantly needing to turn the volume up to hear, sometimes it would be fine when one person was talking, but then the next person couldn't hardly be heard. As ar as the movie goes, very boring in my opinion. The very beginning of the movie where they show the set up was interesting, but from there it kind of just became bland.
Summary: After watching the Conjuring and thinking how good it I was eager to see The Apparition! (Thinking it would be in the same vein) Sadly though it did not live upto my expectations. Its just a typical American film, pretty girl and pretty boy with no real depth of story. It trys to be scary and jumpy but fails drastically. Oh how It could of been soooo much better. Forget this one and go buy The Conjuring!
