The more I see of the mysterious new film Emergo, the more desperate I am becoming to watch it! It was reported last year that the director of Buried, Rodrigo Cortes, had written a film that was set to change the way we watch movies all together. The first images came through last week, followed by a very chilling trailer.
Today a new US trailer has emerged, and there is a lot more explaining going on here to give you a proper idea as to what the hell is going on.
Directed by Carles Torrens and written by Rodrigo Cortes, Emergo (or Apartment 143 as it is known in the US) stars Kai Lennox, Michael O’Keefe and Rick Gonzalez.
Magnolia has acquired US rights and plan to release the film on the States as VOD on 27th April, followed by a theatrical run from 1st June. No UK release details have been announced.
“Shot entirely in English, ‘Emergo’ is the descendant of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Rec,’ but breaks away from tradition by revolutionizing filmmaking altogether. All types of cameras are used – video, HD, 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm – as we follow scientists’ footsteps through a haunted house, casting a frightening spell over the audience. Brace yourself for this terrifying experience!”
