The Silver Bullet ~ “The Apparition” Trailer

Synopsis:  A couple are haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment.

Release Date:  August 24, 2012

Thoughts: Today’s preview is for a late summer horror film that hopes to snag audiences hungry for outright scares.  The overlong trailer may wind up giving too much away and it’s a shame that it starts off as another found footage creeper which could send audiences the wrong message.  I was a bit bored until the final shot that delivers a nice dose of goosebumps.  Dark Castle Entertainment is producing this one and their success rate is about 50/50.  I enjoyed the schlocky remakes of House on Haunted Hill and House of Wax and their original thriller Orphan provided superior thrills.  On the other hand, I was decidedly non-plussed with The Reaping and Thir13een Ghosts.  A huge horror fan, I can’t imagine I’ll pass this one up in the theaters but my expectation bar is at ground level.
