The Apparition Wants To Scare You To Death

So this summer, specifically in August, we’ve got two new entries in the horror genre that look promising.  The Possession, produced by Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures, and now The Apparition, from writer/director Todd Lincoln, making his theatrical debut.  The Apparition stars Sebastian Stan (Captain America, Hot Tub Time Machine), Ashley Greene (Twilight series), Tom Felton (Harry Potter series) and Julianna Guill (Altitude).  There seems to be some cool visuals here and I really like the 70s/80s look in some of the shots.  At first, I was almost certain this was a period piece with some of the equipment, clothing and look of the film but all that is mixed in with stuff that also looks very modern.  Regardless, I’ll be hoping that The Apparition provides a fun and scary time at the movies come August 24th.

Below you’ll find the premise, trailer and poster for the film.

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 and death.

    I’m always hoping for a great original horror film, especially with all of the remakes on the horizon. I like the story behind The Possession because the entire idea of buying someone else’s junk when you have no clue as to the history behind it is very intriguing.

      Yea, I’m always hoping for new solid entries into the horror genre. Both of the films have potential.

    Both look promising. I generally think horror is more effective if it focuses on the suspense/story more then the gore and my hopes are up for these two.
