Sunod is a different kind of horror film that serves typical Filipino horror movie tropes but display great visuals along with its storytelling. Olivia is a relatable character in her melancholy for her daughter's condition. Overall, it is a fresh horror flick that people should watch.
visually entertaining. may holloywood feels horror movie. clean and elegant horror film. may direction yung story.
Nothing great. You know it's not really scary when BPO people work in the dark with nothing but their computer screens and powerpoint presentations lighting up the room.
kakaibang horror movie. i love it. watch nyo mga besh, promise di kayo magsisisi.
I give it 4.5 stars.
I seldom rate movies here and usually I'm very critical about it especially if I'm not satisfied. "Sunod" is a very nice piece of film if you compare it to the usual pinoy horror/suspense movies (Erik Matti should learn from this).
These are the elements that makes this movie stand among the rest:
1. Great cast - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
2. Cinematography - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
3. Production Design - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4. Direction - 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4. Sound - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5. Music/Score - 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Not so Good:
What suffers here is the story. Although I like the story overall, the setup is too long until something happens. It's even on the edge of getting convoluted.
Editing - again, the setup is too long until a significant incident happens. Phasing is not good and there are several dragging moments. Yeah, yeah... it's the director and producer's decision.
Anyway, please go watch "Sundo" and you'll never regret it. Like what I said earlier, this film is five stars if you compare it to the usual pinoy horror/suspense movie (made by Erik Matti).
Great cast, amazing cinematography, and a thought-provoking juxtaposition of three (count em!) parent-child relationships that are rocked by the supernatural. Worth seeing on the big screen.
