Apartments of Ghosts

Apartment 143

In Apartment 143, an upcoming movie billed as “the first real ghost story” (I’ll be the judge of that), a team of parapsychologists sets out to investigate a series of anomalous phenomena taking place in a newly rented abode. (Note: “abode” is a noun and is another word for a place in which a person resides; residence; dwelling; habitation. Just as “emergo” is another name for Apartment 143. I don’t really know what an emergo is. This is all too confusing.)

Apartment 143

Releasing in Spain on April 27, 2012 (VOD) and June 1, 2012 limited theatrical) as Emergo (whatever that is), Apartment 143 was shot entirely in English. Good, because those Rosetta Stone™ lessons aren’t doing my brain any good. Other than ghost-hunters checking out the hauntability of the emergo, the only thing anyone seems to know is that the movie uses a bunch of different types of cameras: video, HD, 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm. I’ll have to consult Rosetta to see what all of that jibber-jabber means, although I think the “mm” stands for M&M’s candy. I sure hope it’s the peanut kind. The plain M&M’s don’t rock my emergo the way they used to. I could sure go for a pack of 35mms right about now.

Here’s what I accurately think happens in Apartment 143: they’ll use shaky hand-held cameras to film alleged anomalous phenomena jiggling the handle when they’re done making brown ectoplasm in the bathroom.

Consider that a spoiler.
