I'm still working on this. There were some good lines and some simple shots and scenes that will make you nod with approval. Some in your face footage that will resonate as well. And a creepy little kid with a dead dog always spice up a scary movie!


Nothing real new to make us run out and buy or even rent the film. Standard footage and story. Acting was pretty white people and characters we never get to know. The $10 paid for the film was not good either.

The movie is back to the same old cutting block for a horror movie. Part of the reason many are disinterested in horror films is this type of film.

There are a group of white people dabbling in the “other side” and trying to figure out “what happened” and then trying to “close the hole and send them back.” This is their brief story. We see what happened in some 1973 incident with choppy, muted, grainy film, and then again we see what happened a few years ago with the same style footage, and a subpar Blair Witchesqe storyline.

We also see an iPhone 3 being used, and this means the movie has been sitting around for a few years, like 1000 Words that Eddie murphy was recently in, with an iPhone 3 as well.  We see how well that movie did… The other shameless product placements for Chipotle, Costco, Waste Management, and Blu Ray were a bit in your face as well. Very little discretion.  At least the advertisers got what they paid for.

There is little to keep us engaged. There are a few scenes where viewers think “dddaaaaannggggg…” and then smile and move on with the film and forget what we just saw. For the most part is was predictable.  Except when the pretty white people are too scared to sleep in the house, so they decide to pitch a tent in the driveway, for added protection.  Seriously, these are things that happened in the movie.

Wait for Possession is all I can say, and cross our fingers. If there has to be a choice, the choice just became a lot easier. Not Apparition.
