Once you believe, you die
The Apparition (2012) is a supernatural horror movie.
Synopsis: When frightening events start to occur in their home, young couple Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, Patrick (Tom Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.
You know what? There are so-called horror movies that are hilariously not scary at all. This is one of them. But there are big names - Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen from the Twilight Saga series) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter series). It's kinda like a "playground" for young rising stars or something.
The movie starts off with a grayish 1970s seance experiment scene about conjuring a spirit back into this world. The shooting style reminds me of Paranormal Activity or any of those found-footage horror movies. Nothing revolutionary here. Then, it continues to the plot where three parapsychology students - Patrick, Ben, and Lydia - are trying to replicate the same experiment before whatever written in the synopsis above transpires.
There's not much scare factor but a whole chunk of scientific explanations about spirits, purgatory, supernatural world, so on and so forth. I think director Todd Lincoln wants this to be an intelligent horror movie with scientific twist to differentiate itself from mainstream scary horror movie.
To be honest, if you're not a fan of horror movies but you want to give the horror genre a try, you might be able to stomach this one. Compared to Mama (2013) and Sinister (2012), this movie is nowhere near those two super horror movies. Good luck!
