‘The Heiress’ Grand Reveal
‘The Heiress’ from Regal Entertainment, Inc. promises to bring the scares, chills, and frights to moviegoers and deliver big time in the horror factor. The official trailer alone had a few jump-out-of-your-seat moments in it so expect more when you get to watch the actual movie when it comes to cinemas on November 27, 2019.
Watch ‘The Heiress’ and you will not only be jumping out of your seat, but you are also guaranteed to cringe in fear and be perpetually glancing furtively around you wondering if an evil entity might be lurking and waiting in the shadows to pull you away with it!
‘The Heiress’ has an all-star cast in Janella Salvador, Maricel Soriano, Sunshine Cruz, McCoy De Leon, and Jane De Leon.
‘The Heiress’ is a gathering of the past, present, and future stars in its choice of casting. To have Maricel Soriano, who is an icon and a key figure in the long history of Horror movies from Regal Entertainment, Inc.; Sunshine Cruz who is no stranger to this movie genre; and Janella Salvador who is one of the country’s top young actresses and who herself has appeared in a few horror-themed movies which have now become classics–interestingly, the three of them– comprise a coming together of three generations of key actresses in the horror genre.
‘The Heiress’–as revealed during the grand reveal–will delve deep into the country’s long history of the paranormal, the demonic, and the other-worldly beings. In particular, ‘The Heiress’ will feature the Mambabarang which is our own version of an evil sorceress or a witch doctor in the Philippines.
The Mambabarang will be the main villain of this movie and that demonic entity is what the onscreen character of Janella Salvador “Guia” has to go up against.
Can she survive the onslaught? Will she come out alive?
Will she win?
There is only one way to find out what her fate will be and that is to watch ‘The Heiress’ when it is released nationwide in cinemas on November 27, 2019.
‘The Heiress’ is directed by Frasco Mortiz and produced by Regal Entertainment, Inc.
Now, here are my questions for Janella Salvador:
1. After doing this movie, are you now afraid that a Mambabarang might suddenly appear to you?
Janella Salvador: Actually, pagbaba ko nga sa stairs kanina for the grand reveal, nagulat na ako at napasigaw ako! Kasi I did not know she (The Mambabarang) was there. Yung unang nakita ko yung costume at look ng Mambabarang, natakot talaga ako !
It really haunts you, yung itsura niya. Kasi, talaga, matatakutin ako. Kaya na i-imagine ko talaga siya minsan pag nasa bahay ako. Pero hindi ko pa naman siya napapanaginipan.
2. Does The Mambabarang remind you of anything you have seen before in horror movies?
Janella Salvador: No, kasi she has her own look and hindi siya ginaya sa ibang mga horror movies. And so, wala ako naalala na specific movie. Natatakot lang talaga ako sa kanya.
3. Prior to the filming ‘The Heiress’ had you already heard of The Mambabarang? Or is this the first time you have heard of The Mambabarang?
Janella Salvador: Actually, before pa, I have known pa what a Mambabarang is. A Mambabarang is a woman who practices sorcery by black magic. Pero ang hindi ko alam iba pala ang Mamalarang sa Mambabarang. Ang Mamalarang ang isang evil spirit na nanakit talaga.
