This thriller and horror film stars actors such as Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton, Julianna Guill, and more. This movie is about an university couple who discovers that there is a demonic entity that has been released after a parapsychology experiment was conducted and is now haunting them, they then decide to seek the help of a paranormal expert before it is too late. I find the movie very cheesy and relies heavily on jump scares, not-so-creepy music soundtracks and reckless characters for the scare factors most horror movies have naturally. It wasn’t that bad of a watch if you try and keep your expectations low and your excitement for the horror and cheesy scares high, and maybe for the noticeable actors Sebastian Stan (Captain America The First Avenger) and Tom Felton ( Harry Potter Series). I would for sure recommend this movie to those who are still easing their way into horror films, or even starting there horror movie adventure. Rating: 3 Out Of 5 Stars

i tried. I really tried to get thru this. But the plot is ridiculous, the acting isn't that great and....it's pretty boring.

This is giving university students WAY too much credit.

Pepper the Dog should have stayed away from the house that killed him, but better yet, he should have stayed away from Central Casting.

By the book horror fare; the horror was the fact that I rented it in the first place.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way. Very predictable.

Dreck. Started off okay -- looked good, anyway -- but soon deteriorated into one of the worst horror movies I' ve ever seen. The main problem is the script: The characters in this movie are the stupidest college students I've ever encountered -- and I sat through the horror movies of the 80s! The cast is no help. Felton is annoying as the English poof/mad scientist, as is Sebastian Stan as the ostensible hero. Poor Ashley Greene, though.... She looks too much like Kristen Stewart for comfort and she's got that same "Did I leave something burning on the stove?!?" angst that makes Stewart such a chore to watch. All-in-all, The Apparition is one to skip.

Very blah run of the mill horror/ghost movie. You very much feel like you have seen this story (or something very similar) before and seen it done better. I was unimpressed. Not terrible, just unnecessary. Tame. Not scary.
