Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

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.

Apartments don't kill people. Boredom kills people...
21 July 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Another one of those "let's make a foreign movie into a Hollywood version", and yet again, as with so many other such attempts, it failed and was put to shame by the original.

Given the fact that the original Japanese "Apartment 1303" wasn't particularly much to write home about, then you would think that director Michael Taverna would have it nice and easy here to make it into a better remake. You would think so! But wow, this American version of "Apartment 1303" turned out to be even worse and more boring than the original Japanese version.

The storyline is essentially the same as in the Japanese version, a woman movies into an apartment that is haunted by something sinister because of a tragic event that took place in the self same apartment.

This American version of "Apartment 1303" was nowhere even remotely near being scary or spooky in the least bit. And it was a rather pointless and dull experience to sit through. I had initially hoped that Rebecca DeMornay would be able to lift up the movie even just a bit, but that proved not to be the case, as she wasn't given much to work with in this movie.

Some times it is better to not meddle with original versions of movies, and just leave them to what they initially were and are. I strongly suggest that you watch the Japanese version of "Apartment 1303" if you absolutely have to watch this story. However, be warned, you are not in for much of an improvement.
