Tom Felton and Ashley Greene in the First Trailer for 'The Apparition'
After making a decidedly annoying turn in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, British actor Tom Felton keeps on trying to shed his image as Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise, and judging by this first trailer for Warner Bros. new horror thriller The Apparition, he's not doing a bad job, at least on the surface. Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger) also star in the film with all the cliches of a ghostly horror thriller. Green walks around in her underwear, there's big jumps, creepy imagery, and some kind of viral, spiritual kind of terror. Looks pretty generic to me. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Todd Lincoln's The Apparition originally from Apple:
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 (Tom Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force. Todd Lincoln makes his feature writing and directing debut with The Apparition which hits theaters everywhere on August 24th.

Interestiiing wee twist there. I'd be imagining up some nymphet vampires though, not some wall sucking horror biscuits.

Dark Castle productions are good at making visually interesting concepts, but they lack at good story and characters. (i.e. Thirteen ghosts, house on haunted hill, Gothika, etc.) I'll give this a try nonetheless.

agree......BUT - 13 ghosts, while not good on story/acting (and especially bad make-up on the ghosts - it was awful!), was fun to watch once those ghoulies got loose - i liked the mayhem of everyone running around trying to get away......good times!

Not impressed at all...nice concept, but I agree with Cinemamind...Thirteen ghosts, house on haunted hill, Gothika were all a bust. I'll pass

I hate to say this - but Bucky, Draco & Alice mean I'm there. I hate myself sometimes.

I wish this movie wasn't real. Looks so damn lame.

eugh. that ghost girl coming out of the washing machine or whatever lol; pretty creepy. i'm curious about the end, but i could sense 4 shit sequels in the making.

Tom Felton is the reason I'm going to see this. But i will say it does like interesting and I like the whole if you believe it. And the fear making it stronger. Of course this isn't going to be a big money maker most of these movies aren't but yes I will watch this in theaters.

Actually, it looking "generic" makes perfect sense, given the concept. If this "apparition" is created by a person's own thoughts/beliefs, then those thoughts/beliefs would be based on what we already think we know about ghosts. A person's imagination would be informed by mass-media. So if a normal person were to imagine a haunting...it'd be very derivative of other hauntings seen on film.

Almost same idea with Pulse(Kairo)

Cup of Hollywood horror genre run out of original ideas, no wine no beer no even water , I'm not drunken guy But we need good horror makers until good horror ideas Look to original evil dead, repetitive idea but Sam raimi make it unforgettable movie he even make reboot(or remake) in 2013! Yes this one is repetitive too but if director will made it solid "I'm in"

Sad that they ripped off the same looking chick/monster/thing from The Grudge.
