[BD Review] ‘The Apparition’ Unfocused and Overdeveloped

THE APPARITION

Now in theaters everywhere from Warner Bros. Pictures is Todd Lincoln’s The Apparition, a supernatural horror with Found Footage elements, and the cast of Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Luke Pasqualino, Julianna Guill and Tom Felton.

[The movie] opens with not one, but two fantastic sequences that set the table for what should be the premiere haunter of the year. Unfortunately, the rest of the film is bogged down with heavy exposition, lack of rules, and a lackluster performance from Sebastian Stan.

The biggest problem with The Apparition is that the story behind haunting is way, way, wayyyyy more interesting than the relationship between [Stan and Green’s characters).

In the end it just feels like Apparition is unfocused and overdeveloped.

    So it’s about two guys testing to see if a girl can put on a condom? I’m not really getting what’s going on in the picture. Anyway, it’s a shame, the trailer had potential.

    I agree, Brad. Except for the Sebastian Stan part. I thought he was great. Yeah, I haven’t been this disappointed in a horror movie in theaters since The Messengers. I guess I should avoid all Twilight-actress horror films in the future. I was so excited for this and it was just terrible. The premise was so good; it’s too bad that they couldn’t make a good movie out of it. And of course *SPOILERS* they had to put the ending of the movie on the poster, in the TV spots, and in the trailer. Ugh.

    This movie was a borefest. The story was crap,the acting was flat as Ashley Greene’s ass,not to mention she has the appeal of a trashcan. Very very underwhelming…my friend fell asleep and he has a huge crush on Ashley.
