“Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B” and “Double Barrel” also featured
Emotions run high in three movies premiering on television including “100 Tula Para Kay Stella,” “Ang Mananaggal sa Unit 23B,” and “Double Barrel” via SKY Movies Pay Per View from October 21 to November 10.
Reminisce on youth and the pangs of unrequited love with JC Santos and Bela Padilla in the hit indie movie “100 Tula Para Kay Stella,” the story of love-struck stutterer Fidel (JC Santos) pining for carefree rocker Stella (Bela Padilla). Moving away from light-hearted teen romance, it was a hit among millennial audiences becoming the top-grosser and winning the Audience Choice Award at the first Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino by the Film Development Council of the Philippines.
Another movie to watch out for is Prime Cruz’ “Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B.” Cruz’ sophomore offering transforms the manananggal folklore from that of monster to cursed being. Jewel (Ryza Cenon) is a manananggal living in modern Manila. She is in search, not of food, but of someone who will love and accept her for who she is. Cruz won Best Director at the 2016 QCinema Film Festival for this modern day supernatural Romeo and Juliet.
Fans of “Seklusyon’s” Phoebe Walker can look forward to watching her in “Double Barrel.” She plays Martha, the wife of a former drug peddler roped into killing drug lords with her husband to keep him from prison. The movie was helmed by premier director Toto Natividad.
