~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Apartment 143 (2012)

AKA: Emergo

Starring: Michael O'Keefe, Rick Guzman, Fiona Glascott, Kai Lennox
Director: Carles Torrens

Premise:
A single father suspects his apartment is haunted. He calls in paranormal experts to investigate.

My Take:
The movie is shot through the paranormal team's cameras. It gives the movie the "found footage" feel without really being in the subgenre. 
I enjoyed a rather unique take on the approach of the investigating team. They ingest the entire situation and get to the secrets behind the family before coming to a conclusion as to why these events are occurring. 
However, the last 15 seconds really turned me off and discredited much of every thing seen before it. And for me prevented the movie from set apart from many of its counterparts.

Rating: In the middle
