As a huge fan of horror movies, I have to say, this has to be one of the most boring and uninteresting I've ever seen. It's clear WB reached for ANY haunted house script laying around and produced it in an attempt to cash in on the "paranormal activity" craze. The film isn't even remotely scary, the writing is awful, the storyline is thin, the acting is weak, it takes nearly half the movie for something even remotely exciting to happen...I could go on, but what's the point? Save yourself the time and money. I was literally checking the time until it was over.

I cannot remember a time recently when I finished a movie and found it to be as poorly thought out and executed as this one. The character motivations are incomprehensible, the dialog terrible, the setting boring and the directing stale and unimaginative. I was excited to watch it based on the premise (scientists summon ghost) and that the director is attached to adapting a Joe Hill work for the screen. Now all I can think is poor Joe Hill, he's destined to have as poor luck with the movies as his dad did. Avoid this film.

The acting was solid and special effects were really good. The movie held our interest the entire time and was worth watching. My sister downloaded the digital copy since she liked it so much. It does not focus on gore and slashing at all, which I preferred as the acting and direction really has to be solid for a movie to deliver.

To me it wasn't the best horror movie but still very watchable and something I enjoyed. I think overall it lacked the chills and suspense of a good horror movie but I did enjoy the story..

The Apparition starts off with a flashback to May 21st, 1973 where a group of people conduct The Charles Experiment, a seance where they stare at the picture of a dead man by the name of Charles Reamer, hoping to summon his spirit and communicate with him. Many years later in modern times, college students Lydia, Patrick, Greg, and Ben try their hand at The Charles Experiment but with more modern and advanced technology. However something goes terribly wrong during the experiment and Lydia is attacked by an unseen force and supposedly pulled through the ceiling and is never seen from again.

The film jumps to more current times where Ben (Sebastian Green) and his beautiful girlfriend, Kelly (Ashley Greene) are living together in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Things don't stay quiet for long however when a multitude of horrible, supernatural happenings begin taking place inside of the house. After Kelly is nearly killed one night by this apparition, they contact paranormal specialist, Patrick, who was also one of the ones that partook in the Charles Experiment with Ben. After Patrick reveals to Ben and Kelly that the house itself is not the problem, but rather that this apparition studies humans and feeds on their fears no matter where they run; Ben and Kelly come to the realization that no matter where they run or hide, there is no possible escape from this supernatural force

Overall: When I first picked up the Apparition, I was expecting it to be a pretty good film but it was quite the opposite. While the plot of the movie seems slightly different from other horror movies these days, the story-telling behind the plot is very slow, which is bound to turn away the viewer's interest and attention from the movie in a hurry.

This is a good simple ghost story that the teens can watch. The film starts out with a seance in 1973. It then abruptly switches to the present where a "scientific seance experiment" is going to be performed. The crew wires up their heads in order to intensify the energy field for the entity to pass through. Things don't go that well for Patrick (Tom Felton, Draco from "Harry Potter") and his crew as something has happened.

The film jumps again to Ben (Sebastian Stan) who was part of the experiment and Kelly (Ashley Greene, Alice from "Twilight" ) one of the world's worse house sitters. Their house number is "2812" which flashes for a moment. It adds up to 13, although we really don't need a premonition of things to come. Like a good ghost story the odd events in the home build up slow until they reach a boiling point at which time my cat jumps on me.

I enjoyed the build up. I also liked the way they integrated the "found footage" into the film and didn't rely strictly on it. Thank you Todd Lincoln. Ashley Kelly, who was allowed to act in "Twilight" gives us a good performance in this one in spite of Sebastian Stan being unconvincing in his part. As the lead actor in this film, his character was written rather shallow, which was the downfall of the film. I didn't like the repeated narration near the end of the film and the ending needed to be tweaked.

Makes for a decent film for the sleepover, especially if they are sleeping outside in a tent.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Ashley Greene in bra, panties and a shoulder up shower scene. Minor swearing.

With movies like Sharknado coming out weekly on SyFy, I was afraid this was another movie of the same lot or that Ashley Greene just lent her name to the credits and was only making a cameo appearance. However, the movie really does star Ashley Greene and she handles the part very well and the quality of the filming is very good. It is your standard haunted artifact to haunted house film, but many of the scenes will feel familiar. In the end though, there isn't much to be afraid of and there are no scenes that are truly scary. In short, if you like Ashley Greene you will like this movie, if you are looking for something scary this is not the movie for you (try The Conjuring instead.)
