“The Apparition” revolves around Kelly (Ashley Greene) who lives with her boyfriend, Ben (Sebastian Stan), who, unbeknownst to Kelly, was previously involved with three other college students in trying to recreate The Charles Experiment – a 1970's investigation that attempted to summon the spirit of dead man, Charles Reamer.
Strange things begin to take place in Kelly and Ben’s love nest, as Ben receives multiple emails from Patrick (Tom Felton), one of the students involved in the earlier experiment, telling him he’s in danger.
Although the premise of “The Apparition” sounds promising, it is nothing short of ridiculous and totally not scary.
What follows is an inane succession of attempts to get rid of “The Apparition,” which leads to a pretty predictable ending.
According to Blu-ray.com, the writer and director of “The Apparition,” Todd Lincoln, “simply doesn’t have the vision required for this ‘Poltergeist’ rip-off, stumbling through the picture in production survival mode, failing to develop anything introduced in the script beyond whispers and stares.”
The disc also includes a short feature about the making of “The Apparition;” another short involves Joshua P. Warren, who was a consultant on the film and speaks about the paranormal; another called “Haunted Asheville” features Warren speaking about scary goings on in his hometown; and yet another Warren short shows him discussing a brainwave experiment.
