This year’s edition of Sineng Pambansa, which runs until Nov. 4 at SM cinemas, is shining the spotlight on the horror genre, with a four-film lineup that includes Gil Portes’ “Hukluban,” Romy Suzara’s “Sigaw Sa Hatinggabi,” Edgardo “Boy” Vinarao’s “Bacao” and Peque Gallaga and Lore Reyes’ reboot of their 1988 cult favorite, “T’yanak” (“ang anak ni Janice,” remember?).
Seasoned filmmaker Romy Suzara returns to the horror genre with “Sigaw sa Hatinggabi”—one of four films in the lineup of the Sineng Pambansa Horror plus Film Festival.
Veteran filmmaker Gil Portes’ “Hukluban,” an entry in the Sineng Pambansa Horror plus Film Festival this month, is described as a “gothic romance.”
After screenings in Zamboanga, Davao and Baguio, the first Inquirer Indie Bravo! Film Festival goes to Iloilo, starting Friday until June 15.
