Where I went to Odeon’s ‘Scream Unseen’ for the first time and was shown a cliched British horror film set in the woods….I struggle to say much about this film.
I also look at the ‘Geostorm’ trailer in Trailer Talk.

This was a film that I had heard of, but for the wrong reasons: it is apperently bad. I then found out my Dad recorded it on TV, as it had been on the Horror Channel, so I thought I’d bite the bullet and watch it.
‘The Apparition’ centres around Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) as they are haunted by a supernatural presence that is accidently unleashed via a college experiment.
Whilst my Dad enjoyed this film, I hated it; this film is everything I dislike about the paranormal genre. The acting is passable for a film like this: Ashley Greene jumps at every random loud noise (and there’s A LOT) and panics about everything, and Sebastian Stan is alright as her boyfriend (this is the guy who is the Winter Soldier by the way). I don’t remember there being much of a soundtrack and the cinematography’s pretty bland.
The premise that was marketed is actually pretty interesting: the idea that the ghost won’t haunt or torment you until you start to fear it is pretty unique. I’m a big fan of 2017’s ‘IT’ and ‘Jeepers Creepers’, which both use a similar idea, except in a physical form. However, that was the premise that was MARKETED; the actual film doesn’t include this idea at all, rendering the film’s marketing useless.
Tom Felton plays one of the college students who seems to know the most about what’s going on. I thought his story arc was the most interesting, however they kill him off halfway through the film, just as we’re about to learn new information. Also, the poster is the last shot of the film!
The only positive thing I can think of is one of the set pieces is pretty cool.
Overall…don’t watch this. It’s boring and you’ll feel like you’ve wasted an hour and 20 minutes.

Join me in a Behind The Scenes episode! In these episodes, I will look at and talk about the pre-production, production, post production, reactions and influences/inspiration of a film, TV show or video game.

Drinking Game: Take a shot (or two) everytime I say the word ‘foreshadowing’.
Where I watch the Netflix Original Film, Death Note. Because I grew up with the source material, I can’t help but keep comparing it to that. However, there is quite a few things I like within this adaptation. I also go through the plot and my notes, as well as give my opinion on the reasoning behind Adam Wingard deleting his Twitter account.
