The best part was when some guy in the theatre started a fight with some guy
23 August 2012 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Look out Tommy Wiseau / "The Room", "The Apparition" might be a close runner up for the greatest worse film of all time. Seriously...I have never seen a worse film shown in a theatre than "The Apparition" - it is THAT bad.

I honestly can't even believe what I saw was an actual movie. I thought it perhaps may have been an experiment in seeing how much product placement could be put into one film and still have some semblance of a plot (it doesn't though).

This film, however, does have real potential to become a fun "interactive" film like "The Room" or "Rocky Horror Picture Show"

But man...wow...unbelievably awful. And I'm a huge horror fan, so I know to set my bar low...
