Tagged as “The first real ghost story” Apartment 143 seems to follow in the footsteps of the Paranormal Activity franchise. Question is… Will it have the same success as PA? Personally I think it has the potential to have large fanbase, but how many people will actually see it is up in the air. With a limited theater release planned and a ‘See it Before it’s in Theaters’ VOD, it will take a strong word of mouth to gain the viewers it will need to be a success. I really like these kind of movies, so I hope the word spreads about Apartment 143.
A team of parapsychologists sets out to investigate a series of anomalous phenomena taking place in a newly occupied apartment. Telephone calls with no caller, mysterious shadows, extraordinary light emissions, flying objects, and exploding light bulbs, are some of the events they will face while recording their every step with state-of-the-art technology. Using infra-red filming, digital photography, psychophonic recordings, movement detectors, and magnetic field alteration meters, the group’s attempts to contact the “other side” will grow increasingly dangerous as they near a point of no return…
Apartment 143 (also known as Emergo) will release to VOD April 27th and will hit select theaters June 1st. The movie stars Kai Lennox, Michael O’Keefe, Rick Gonzalez, Fiona Glascott, and Gia Mantegna. Anticipation Level: 4/5
