Yesterday was all about Apartment 143 (Emergo) as we released a stack of new images and the film’s official poster for the Spanish haunter opening on VOD April 27, with a limited theatrical run slated for June 1.
While we wait for Magnet to unleash the official trailer on Apple later today, this morning it hit international waters. The film is English-language, so no need for subs! The footage reminds me of Sidney J. Furie’s classic 1982 The Entity (I’m pretty sure I saw a brief shot of a ghost-rape about to occur) with all of the ghostly violent. I just hope it doesn’t come off like a physical comedy – watching nothing throw a guy around for an hour just isn’t scary.
Directed by Carles Torrens, and starring Kai Lennox, Michael O’Keefee, Gia Mantegna, Rick Gonzalez, Fionna Glascott, and Francesc Garrido, “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!”
Shot entirely in English, Emergo is the descendant of The Blair Witch Project and REC, but breaks away from tradition by revolutionizing filmmaking altogether.
