Goofs

When Kelly is unpacking and placing clothes in the drawer, the dresser moves about 8 inches while she is looking away. When she notices it and looks down at the carpet, she sees the indentation where the dresser leg was, but an elongated slight indentation is missing which the leg should have created by being dragged on the carpet.

Average horror movie, but did you really expect anything else?
16 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are true horror fan you have most likely come to terms with the fact that a "Great" horror film is fairly rare nowadays. For the most part in the horror world all we get is remakes, reboots, and sequels. When we finally do get a stand alone movie it is easy to say that it will most likely just be an average movie (especially with ghost movies).

I for one am far past expecting horror films to scare me, so I was not very disappointed when I realized "The Apparition" was not going to be scary. There isn't really much scary stuff out there that hasn't already been done in some other film, so it is incredibly hard to surprise audiences with good scares. Nothing in this movie is going to really catch you of guard or makes you shiver with fear, but you will most likely be entertained through out.

The story is interesting enough, I never really found myself bored or wanting the film to end. It is also very short, which is actually a good thing in this case, since if it would have gone on for much longer I probably would have started to get fairly bored.

I see people saying this film is terrible, boring, horrible, etc. I wouldn't really call it any of those things. Its very average, and as long as you go into this expecting that you will not be letdown. It won't be a film you will rush out and suggest to your friends, but it is still entertaining nonetheless and if you find yourself bored on a Friday night this will do a good job of occupying a little over an hour of your time.

5/10
