In Detroit, Janet Slate is happy since she has just rented the apartment 1303 of the Lake View Residence and will leave her alcoholic mother Maddie Slate. She calls her sister Lara to tell the news and she meets the girl Emily, who is her next door neighbor. Emily tells her that a girl, Jennifer, has killed her mother many years ago and jumped off the balcony, committing suicide. She also tells her to leave the apartment. Janet hears strange noises in the apartment and she calls her boyfriend Mark Taylor to spend the night with her. When Mark leaves the apartment, Jennifer throws Janet off balcony. The detective in charge of the investigation tells Lara that there are several cases of women committing suicide in that apartment, but he believes that someone has filled them. Lara decides to move to Janet's apartment despite what has happened there.Written by

In her new apartment. Lara goes to open a bottle of wine with a corkscrew. She becomes frightened by the wind and knocks the wine glasses and the bottle over with the corkscrew attached to the bottle, in the next scene she goes next door and introduces herself to Emily. She asks Emily if she can borrow a corkscrew but does get one from Emily. She goes back to her apartment and has an uncomfortable interaction with the creepy superintendent. When she goes back into the kitchen the glasses are back and the wine bottle is upright, without the corkscrew attached, it is open and has no cork in, you can see her poke her index finger into the open bottle top. The cork is also visible when she grabs the neck of the bottle and uses the corkscrew to 'open' the bottle. The wrapping on the neck of the bottle changes. She only got one glass out of the closet, yet there are two on the counter. She picks up an object after knocking the glasses and wine bottle over, but that object is not seen again in later shots.

I watched because it starred (supporting role) Rebecca DeMorney (sp?). But I was really taken back by her AWFUL acting as well as the awful acting of every other actor in the movie. I was so embarrassed for her performance and wondered why she agreed to play this tacky, tacky part.
Had her acting career started with the caliber of this example, she would never have even met Tom Cruise. (Yes! THAT bad.)
I knew within 10 minutes that this movie was bad. We stopped watching, but I have a hard time leaving a movie unfinished and went back to see the rest of it. HOPING it might improve.
It didn't. Not . one . bit.
