But sometimes suggestions just hang in the air pointing nowhere and virtually nothing happening feels like just that.
Like its titular haunt, the film is a tease that irritates more than it does anything else.

As for the screenplay, Lincolns writing is nothing but a stale rehash of haunted house cliches and little innovation.

The photography itself isnt particularly impressive, but whats on the screen looks great.

What actually happens in the movie seems to be left over from some kind of rigorous cutting session. Its less of an arc than a flatline.

E Film Critic
The Apparition is a rare example of filmmaking failure that is so complete, it will exacerbate its audience in nearly every way possible.
Its a worthy subject, but the film lacks any daring expressive touches that might have made it, at the very least, noteworthy.
The Apparition is not a great or even good haunted house movie, but it does have the advantage of a memorable setting.
This thoroughly inept horror film really makes one question the ways of Hollywood.
Wafts out of the ether like the ghosts of bad movies past, the very picture of the cinemas dog days of August.

The Apparition is an incompetent exercise trying to generate scares from an exhausted premise.
Mark Reviews Movies
This horror movie from Warner Bros. (2012) is nothing special, but its nice to see a modest genre entertainment buoyed by a major studios resources.
Unfortunately, the believing equals death bit never really plays out in this lame spooky wannabe that has one positive selling point.
The Nature of Imitation is the sound of Dorian Concept systematically deconstructing various genres, stripping them back to the bones underneath and t ..
Lincolns script has no knack for the pacing of cinematic exorcisms, and the truncated climax he does offer is short on action and scares.
But for casual viewers desiring a few scares, some suspense and a sustained sense of dread and malevolence, you could do worse.
There is something haunting The Apparition, stalking its dark corners and lying in wait to make itself seen.
The second thing is a true inspiration on the part of writer director Todd Lincoln.The Apparition is the first Great Recession horror movie.
Todd Lincoln tries for a weirdly menacing tone but its uneven, even when amped by Tomandandys techno score.
Theres a lot of bellyaching by horror fans about the PG 13 ification of horror films, and that can be troublesome.
Devoid of scares and energy, the picture is all bumps in the night and has nothing to set it apart from its other forgettable post Japanese horror con ..

Lights flicker; soap and cactuses blacken; claw marks appear; icky molds gather like hornet nests.
May run just 82 minutes (and that includes drawn out final credits), but the pictures brevity cant hide what a toothless waste of potential it all is.

It is poorly acted, horrendously written, choppily edited, and lugubriously paced at even just 74 minutes before credits.
If after all this youre expecting a Big Scary Payoff, youll be disappointed.
Its simply one of the worst horror movies Ive ever seen in my life; such a waste of time being in that theater. Its so wholly awful its almost an ache ..
Apparition is unfocused and overdeveloped. bogged down with heavy exposition, lack of rules, and a lackluster performance from Sebastian Stan.
But the film essentially drops this idea after introducing it, as it does most of the elements it introduces.
