Sayang sa pera, ang gulo ng plot, ang gulo ng story line, stupid main character, etc. and really? A simple freaking rule? Can't follow a simple rule annie? Puro "lumayas ka" ang bukang bibig ng mga character bwiset.
Akala ko horror pero naiyak ako...sa binayad ko. Bidang aanga-anga, lampa, walang redeeming value almost deserving to get possessed. Ang tagal ng paglevitate niya ha na walang nagyayari to the point na nakalimutan ko na siya at para na siyang chandelier sa boring. Bottomline sisihin si Imelda Marcos sa mga spiritong nanggugulo.
If this is based on a book,I am sorry to say that i did not read it so my review is just based on what i saw in the theatre
As for my credential as a critic,i am not a professional critic,but i am what i call a "consumer".i love watching non mainstream,B grade movies.
As for the spoilers,well...SPOILER ALERT!!!
Stop now if you hate spoilers........
For those who want to proceed,here are my comments/review:
1. Authenticity- spirit groups,ghost hunters,spirit questers; wear the proper clothes.if you expect danger,please choose comfortable shoes.not those wedge sandals that will make you the girl-who-fell-down-during-the-big-chase.also,skirts and sitting on the floor does not mix well.unless you want to distract your male companion during the ritual.
2. You chose the danger,then follow the rules that were set.the leader was clear with the single rule,the main protagonist broke it twice.
3. Follow the movie rule of three: you can only repeat something three times,the punch line is at the third line,etc...
4. Introduce the characters specially if they are a specialist in a group.even "red shirts" get introduced
I had high expectations as it is rooted from a mysterious and actual subject. However, the film was not able to deliver from wrong selection of actors, bad scriptwriting, poor production design etc. It seemed that the director would like to put in everything in his mind resulting to a nonsense plot which made the film as one the worst movies at the start of the year. Indeed, a tragic way to waste your money.
Characters suddenly went missing (yes, I'm talking about you Erwin), bad scriptwriting, bad acting, jumping storylines that are not properly laid in the narrative and just.... wow. I had high expectations for this film and... oh dear.
