Scary, director tried to dictate performances to good actors (by yalemangeller2222)
My cousin was on set in Montreal for the filming of Apartment 1303. This was a weird and scary experience. He has been on many sets. He was shocked at how the director worked. The director, who really did not do a bad job because this type horror is what he intended, had three high quality actresses in starring roles, and he tried to force them all to do "stage" performances or some over acting, instead of film acting. Rebecca DeMornay is a respected actor with a good track record in Horror films, and she is gorgeous. She was forced to over-act at times, or maybe I should say STAGE <more>
act rather than Fim act, as was Julianne Michelle, who won awards for her fine film acting in dramas and light comedy. Julianne Michelle resisted and rejected much of the direction and the script as did Rebecca DeMornay and Barton. The film is scary. I just saw it. The actresses are gorgeous. You will get scared and maybe laugh at times. It is good when compared to many other horrors. Cory Sevier is not wooden. He did well. He is a fine actor. He followed the script as much as possible, as did Barton, Michelle and DeMornay. Rebecca DeMorney and Julianne Michelle were great. No one in the film is a bad actor, not in my opinion and I have seen more than 2,000 film and 120 of them were horrors. This is okay. The actors are all good. Actually, the script was too weak for these three stars. Any horror probably would be. Stay away from horror. Rebecca and Julianne, you are too good. Rebecca DeMornay and Julianne Michelle I would pay any amount to see. They are fine actors and very pleasing to the eyes. Again, all the actors in this are good and the director got what he intended to get, a special 3-D. I am an MD who knows and has an appreciation for film. This is not bad. Different, scary
Good scary film, very good acting (by freddiefreak333)
We had fun. Apartment 1303 is pretty good with very good acting. Editor or director so so. Little girl is scary and very interesting. The editor made bad decisions. The little girl could have been scarier. She was a good little actress. Horrors normally depend on sex and vile blood. This one has good acting. DeMornay, Michele, Sevier, Dehl all great, even Misha did a good job. That frightening man did well. Could have been a better ending. Worth the price. I read sime of you are knocking the stars. I disagree. They are all super actors, not just good actually. They are not like TV folks, much <more>
better. Music good. Acting was the best part along with a few big frights. We saw real vile garbage last week. This one is pretty good.
I liked Apartment 1303. Two female stars saved it, Michelle and DeMornay (by tomcloon)
I saw this movie yesterday and I enjoyed it. The acting was good. The stars who played the younger sister, Julianne Michelle, and the mother, Rebecca DeMornay were especially good actors. They saved the picture and made it enjoyable. I am tough on Horrors. Most are made for little boys by little boys, sex, nudity, gore. In this one you will actually see people acting without sex and gore. The young sister, Julianne Michelle, has a great body and her clothes stay on during a sizzling scene with Corey Sevier. They are both so great looking, exciting to watch and should have been longer, much <more>
longer. The acting was very good especially by DeMornay and Julianne Michelle. Rebecca DeMornay has done horror before and she is still nice looking. The director and actors did a good job considering the script seemed weak. My two guy friends and I actually had fun watching this one.
