The Apparition is a 2012 horror film.


On May 21, 1973, six people conduct The Charles Experiment, a parapsychological experiment, in which they stare at a drawing of a deceased man, Charles Reamer, hoping to summon his spirit.

Years later, four college students, Patrick, Lydia, Greg, and Ben attempt to recreate the Charles Experiment on a larger scale by using modern technology. When frightening events start to occur in his home, Ben and his girlfriend Kelly discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during the 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, but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.

Why It Sucks

  1. Extremely poor acting with no sense of fear from the actors and little emotion.
  2. The Apparition’s appearance is ripped off from Kayako Saeki from Ju-on/The Grudge series.
  3. Constant jump scares and cheap scares.
  4. Offers nothing new to horror and just adds way too many similarities to other horror films.
  5. Extremely poor story with one critic claiming the trailer had more story than the actual film.
  6. The trailer states that the Apparition is a creation of the mind, but this is not stated in the movie.
