Yet some deals are too good to be true as one night her boyfriend Mark finds her in the middle of the street - having fallen from the balcony thirteen stories above. When her sister Lara tries to investigate the mystery of what happened, she moves into the same apartment and encounters the odd neighbors in the building, including an eerie nine-year old girl who seems to somehow know the real reason for Janet’s fall. Lara soon realizes that her sister’s death might spell the same fate for her unless she can overcome the strange events that are terrorizing the inhabitants in Apartment 1303.

    As it is, your monthly rent is probably scarier than what writer-director Michael Taverna has cooked up in this inept and derivative tale of a Detroit flat that mysteriously drives its tenants to suicide.

Mischa’s performance was pretty standard Mischa but Julianne Michelle’s acting seemed fake and the gods only know what character Rebecca De Mornay was channeling. It came off to much of a caricature and theatrical for what the overall atmosphere of this film was going for-unless the director asked for camp. Then I guess... I had to make amends with that element of “Apartment 1303” to watch this film completely. Don’t get me wrong the performances were not atrocious, they just didn’t come together (or mix well) to bring the chemistry and plausibility of the characters where they should have been to draw me in.

    As for the effects and soundtrack in “Apartment 1303” I can’t say anything bad because it was all pretty well done and should have, or could have rather, made this film pop chillingly. However it was set up, predictable – copy/paste scenarios that fill almost all paranormal horror films that aren’t found-footage. There was no real sudden shock moments that thrilled me, well twice I did jump but mostly I just sat, very frustrated, waiting for the film to end and **** that it wasn’t as thrilling as it could have been. It just all fell flat.

    The practical effects and spook tricks were nice, so kudos to the FX team on this one-too many to mention in this or I would. The sound department did okay, overall the sound effects walked the line between cool and cliché but it did more to help the film than hurt it. The music is pretty standard but it gave the film it’s only real since of emotional communication between story and me. I personally did not get enough out of “Apartment 1303” to find it entertaining or scary but by all means if you see it in the discount bin or get a good deal for renting it and just wanna check it out-go for it-just don’t expect much.

    Yes I love 3-D but if it was this bad, I wouldn't have watched it. Apartment 1303 3-D is a horror three- dimensional thriller flick thatYes I love 3-D but if it was this bad, I wouldn't have watched it. Apartment 1303 3-D is a horror three- dimensional thriller flick that continues to be bad throughout. The story lacks polish and creativity but at least some 3-D scenes felt better than Avatar's 3-D. Seriously. This 2/10 score only pays good tribute to the director's thinking of this dimension, you know, it's a HORROR dimension. A bad and tasteless dimension this is. This movie absolutely had no good use of the spectacular 3-D effects it could have included. The director should have named this film Mickey Mouse Murder on a One-Night-Stand in f**king 3-D. Yes! It's a movie about a sexy woman who's a call girl that gets murdered and now is haunting poor hotties! Wow, Apartment 1303 3-D is so going for the Razzies this year. Collapse

    Apartment 1303 means danger for life.Because, the movie will bore you to death. And danger of death for your Money-bag. We see the first 10Apartment 1303 means danger for life.Because, the movie will bore you to death. And danger of death for your Money-bag. We see the first 10 minutes of a teenager every hand movement in the new apartment Commented themselves. That alone gives the impression already that she is totally gone totaly gaga. It's embarrassing as a spectator and one is ashamed very much for this person.

    In those 10 minutes, she loves her new apartment. For 5 minutes! Then it drives them back in the madness and at minute number 10 is it already in tears. Similarly bad it then goes on to the end. Frightful for 85 minutes.

    The film is an insult to the human mind.

    Probably just produced to steal people money and time.
