Emergo, or Apartment 143 as it is known in the US, is still waiting for a release date here in the UK. However, the film, which is said to change the way we watch movies, is now available on VOD in the US. The film also has a planned theatrical release in the US on 1st June.
I am so looking forward to this, which has been written by Buried director Rodrigo Cortes, and the new clip only heightens my excitement. Check out the intense and freaky clip at the bottom of this post.
“Shot entirely in English, ‘Emergo’ is the descendant of ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Rec,’ but breaks away from tradition by revolutionizing filmmaking altogether.

Brace yourself for this terrifying experience!”
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. Check out two trailers for the film here

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 infra-red 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…”
