The very first time we were in awe watching a digital film shot in green screen was 300. A Hollywood product. This time, it's our turn.
For the first time, Filipino filmmakers pioneer a feature-length movie shot on green screen with the use of the latest technology. Starring Dingdong Dantes, director Erik Matti presents a traditional 'aswang' story in a new form which is consistent with the trend of Hollywood in the likes of The Walking Dead. Joining the cast are Lovi Poe, Janice De Belen, Joey Marquez among many others.
So far, the movie is getting good impressions from social networking site users. The trailer of this movie has been quite impressive. Shown in HD on Youtube, Dantes provides an action feel in his role battling the 'aswangs' who by the way looked so modern. To watch out for are the action scenes and the execution of digital effects. As for the story, we want to bank on the presence of Erik Matti as director who has done quite remarkable films in the past.
Showing this October, will this be a historic elevation for the horror genre in the Philippine movie industry or another 'trying hard copycat' which will fail the moviegoers? Will it be a revelation?
