Thoughts on Apartment 1BR

ThoughtsApartment 1BR is a horror thriller that will see the dream of LA being shattered for a young woman, who finds herself needing to go through a string of events to make sure she can be welcomed into a community, rather than chase the dream she wanted in LA. This is a unique idea behind a cult, because we get to see both sides of the curtain, while knowing there is also a bigger picture being kept a secret. Nicole Brydon Bloom takes on both sides of the curtain with her character, showing how easily they believe they can break someone. The location being used of an apartment complex in the middle of LA, is unique, with the idea that something like this could happen in such a busy environment. Where this film does fall short, would be the ending, which leaves too many unanswered questions, with hope of getting a sequel to explain them all.

Final Thoughts Apartment 1BR is a smartly created horror movie, with us wanting to see even more of the world created.
