Editorial Reviews

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 infrared 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...

Movies that are made from camera point-of-view can be very hit or miss. This one hits for several reasons:

1) The acting is very well done. The people are mostly believable in their roles, and the actor playing the dad does a great job (has some of the weightier emotional scenes).

2) The use of cameras everywhere makes sense in this case. They are a group of paranormal researchers trying to capture what is going on, and the use of lots of well placed cameras would be a good idea. So, cutting between them makes feels natural, and the use of them here really adds to an authentic feeling atmosphere.

3) The paranormal activity that gets captured on film happens very organically, it's not over the top, and folks seem to respond the way their characters would be expected.

4) The story itself isn't trite or hackneyed. It's a story that's hard to predict exactly why the events are taking place, and you feel yourself wondering what's the real cause, especially given how calm in certain cases the lead researcher seems to be (he's pretty confident he knows the real cause, but is trying to eliminate other possibilities).

Overall, I liked it much more than I expected to and if you like horror films, and especially camera-POV type films, this is a good one to watch.

The main problem with Apartment 143 is not the movie itself, but the fact we have been inundated with a host of hand held ghost stories that are "real" found footage with actors. The production by itself is decent, but given the fact we have seen it before will cause one to quickly get bored.

Three ghost hunters investigate the bizarre events at the apartment of Alan White (Kai Lennox). Paul (Rick Gonzalez) is the technology guy and the one we have to blame for all the cameras. Ellen (Fiona Glascott) is the secretary and assistant but vastly prefers the title "gate keeper." The brains of the operation is Dr. Hezler (Michael O'Keefe). Alan has two children: Benjamin (Damian Roman) who is four and Caitlin (Gia Mantegna) who is at that difficult age. Caitlin has a very cold if not hateful relationship with her father, which immediately makes you think we are headed down the ghost/incest lane, something that has become too much of a substitution for good writing here of late.

The mother Cindy has passed on. They believe she is the haunting spirit. Caitlin blames her father for her death.

This production is subject to the same criticism of all found film productions. This one experiments with an idiotic head mounted camera that gives the film a "fish eye" view. The writing and acting were acceptable "B" grade fair. The scare factor was middle of the road. The main problem with this film is that we didn't get to feel for the characters. We got to know about them, but just didn't care.

A lot of viewers seem to have been nonplussed by this film, and I'm not entirely sure why. While the "found footage" technique is getting a bit hackneyed, there's still value in it if the director does it right. And in this case Carlen Torrens seemed to know what he was doing. (People seem to forget that the style originated with "The Last Broadcast" (1998) and not "The Blair Witch Project", tending to blame the latter instead of the former.)

It's not the concept that makes this a really grimy, scary movie, it's the cast of characters Torren brings on board, more specifically two actors who are just generally sinister in whatever roles they play: Michael O' Keefe and Kai Lennox, namely. O' Keefe looks particularly ghastly in this film as Dr. Helzer (a not so subtle reference to Hanz Holzer, the "parapsychologist" who once channeled the spirit of Elvis and wrote a book about it) as the lighting reflects on his constantly sweaty, angst ridden face. Kai Lennox absolutely looks like the malevolent dad with some perverse secret, and his meltdown at one point is great acting.

Keefe plays the parapsychologist called on by Lennox (Alan White, widower) as he needs assistance with his daughter's strange behavior and a poltergeist phenomenon within the home. The movie moves fairly quickly from being lighthearted to sinister without skipping a beat. When the explanations come--a cocktail of mental illness with something else moving around--it is genuinely eerie and packed with atmosphere. The only huge flaw in this production is the ending shot, which was absolutely cliched and just awful. Fortunately, that's after all the important elements of the film have occurred.

I would recommend this to any fan of the horror genre, despite the reservations that may come from some hasty reviews.

It's not going to win any Oscars, but Apartment 143 was a solid , suspenseful horror film. There were the appropriate bumps, knocks, eerie noises, and confused people. What made it far more interesting was the story itself. While it followed the standard pacing ad formula the characters were engaging, smart and most of all, scared.

I'm not a real fan of horror films but this one was definitely worth the time!

Apartment 143 is essentially a combination of Paranormal Activity and The Last Exorcism. Much of the movie is presented from the perspective of the first-person, handheld camera of a paranormal investigative crew of three, but a few stationary cameras are thrown into the mix halfway through the movie to spice things up. In this respect Apartment 143 offers a little more cinematically than either of the two aforementioned films. On the other hand, the camera quality is low and the sound ranges from barely-audible to ouch-turn-it-down depending on the scene. Worse yet, there is only one scene where the paranormal crew puts its fancy technology to use (a stationary camera pans over a dark room using a strobe), making for a bland visual experience.

Visual boredom aside, Apartment 143 falls apart because of its gross lack of identity. Is it a ghost movie? Or is it a possession flick? Is it about apartment 143, or is it about the family that lives there? Is it about a haunting? A demon? A host of demons? Or is it actually a drama about a widower who struggles to be a father? The answer is yes. It tries to be all of these things, and in the process it ends up being none of them. No avenue is taken far enough or explored in enough depth to ground the film's plot. As a result, Apartment 143 is a disjointed, confusing mess, and numerous opportunities to pull off good scares are missed. Peripheral characters come and go without any apparent purpose; the father of the family changes from pushover to self-righteous martyr in a matter of minutes. None of it makes any sense.
