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.

The Apparition...well worth the watch
23 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most thrillers or horror movies offer the same premise and that is almost to be expected these days, that is until those rare offerings are delivered like The Apparition. I appreciate that it wasn't riddled with special effects which are often crammed in to confuse or misdirect viewers. In fact it depends on the viewer to watch the story unveil itself. The acting was very natural and I found the shots visually interesting especially during the closing credits. The score reminded me a little of Cliff Martinez(Contagion, Traffic) which I like and feel added something special to the mood of the film. I genuinely enjoyed it and encourage Thriller/Mystery goers to check out The Apparition. Enjoy!
