The ‘charm’ of horror movies

October 19, 2018

ADD Yam Laranas-produced “All Souls Night” to the list of best Pinoy horror movies. Direk Yam megged the lung-tiring “Sigaw” which was translated into a Hollywood movie titled “The Echo” which won several awards in various filmfests abroad.

“All Souls Night” is a Halloween offering starring Andi Eigenmann which Yam co-produced with Viva Films. It is more of a psychological thriller which is guaranteed to jolt the audience out of their seats.

So what’s the story? Pumasok ang karakter na ginagampanan ni Andi na si Shirley bilang pansamantalang kasambahay at may tatlong mahigpit na habilin ang kanyang among babae. May anak na babae ang kanyang amo na naging katabi ni Shirley sa pagtulog at ito ang nagsiwalat ng isang lihim na magdudulot ng malalagim na pangyayari. Expect endless screaming from the audience when the secret unfolds.

Yam is full of optimism na hahataw sa takilya ang “All Souls Night.”

“I want to entertain and frighten the moviegoers. We have a big market for horror movies. Otherwise, how do you explain ng inabot ng more than a decade ang franchise ng Shake Rattle & Roll. They enjoy the feeling na something up there on the big screen will grab them.”

Yam has come out with a tagline which warns the moviegoers, “Huwag kayong lalabas” and it proved to be effective.
