Apartment 143 (2011) Review:

Apartment 143 (or Emergo) is yet another movie adding to the ever-growing paranormal found footage inspired from the success of Paranormal Activity.

Just like in Grave Encounters, you get to follow a team of scientist specialized in paranormal and poltergeist activities. As usual, the movie starts with them installing cameras and all sorts of detectors in the house, motion sensors, etc. Also, as usual, paranormal events start to appear gradually, ever increasing until the final climax.

As you might have understood by now, Emergo is not an original movie at all. Instead, it capitalizes on the generic aspects of paranormal found footages that worked so far: spectra in pictures, strange sounds recorded, sudden appearance, etc. The movie even throws in there typical scenes from possession movies such as medium séance, white eyeballs or levitation. The results have a feeling of “déjà-vu”, but I feel like Emergo completely assumed it the status of copycat and concentrates instead in making the scares scenes good. And I must say, there are a couple of really creepy moments in that movie.


As for the story, it is more of a pretext to generate as many creepy scenes as possible. The found footage aspect is not perfect either, especially regarding the sound volume that sometimes becomes to low to hear properly.

In contrast to other paranormal found footage that plays solely on cheap suggestions, Emergo has to balls to actually show a lot: you get to see ghosts, some cool possession scenes, lots of objects flying around… and people too.

To resume, Emergo is a movie is a compilation of scenes from other paranormal found footage, but one that gives a result that is creepy enough to be enjoyed by those who liked, for example, Grave Encounters or the Paranormal Activity movies.
