    The soulless-ness of their empty plot of track homes and super-store existence invokes both "Poltergeist" and "Employee of the Month."

It'sThe Apparition is the worst kind of bad horror movie--the kind that's not good enough to enjoy, but not bad enough to make fun of. It's bland, like over-chewed gum that's long since lost its flavor. It's uninspired, incoherent, and overall inept. The story can't make up its mind who the ghost is, how many ghosts there are, or whether they're ghosts or something else. There's so much babble standing in for dialog about psychic bomb shelters and spectral beacons that confuses the story rather than clarifying it. Greene's performance ranges from swimsuit to naughty nightie. Nothing works in The Apparition. The actors struggle with their roles, the parts are underwritten, the story is underpopulated, scenes go nowhere, the score is synthetic and intrusive, the editing is too busy, and The Apparition has nothing to say. The Apparition does not deserve a theatrical release, but should haunt the $5 bins at Wal-Mart for all eternity. Full Review »

A Completely disaster. The trama sounds cool, and that have the oportunity to scare all the people. But the development of the story is really terrible, boring and with much really much cliches. The performances of Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton and the rest of the cast are really terrible. Funny in some moments, but is an awful movie. One of the worst movies of this year.
