The entries of the 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival are composed mostly by BIG returns, revival, sequels, new tandems and remakes. And, the Horror Queen of Filipino Movies, Kris Aquino, cannot exempt herself from those BIG offerings. This time, she will grace again the big screen for the horror flick “Segunda Mano“.
Segunda Mano literally means Second Hand and based on recent interviews, the film will deal about ghosts haunting the people who got their most valued possessions. Following the concept that there’s always a back story in everything. It looks like we have yet another simple, classic ghost story from Star Cinema that promises to scare us this Christmas season.
In an interview last June, Kris Aquino revealed some details about the movie.
“Horror, may slight. It’s basically 70% suspense. Pero just like the Scream movies, ‘di ba, na may konting mga patawa moments. Kasi nga, it’s all about ‘second hand.’ So, ‘di ba, medyo nakakatawa talaga yung pagiging second hand?”
“Second hand na sasakyan, second hand na bag at second hand na asawa.”
Segunda Mano is a joint venture by Star Cinema and Cinemedia which stars Kris Aquino, Dingdong Dantes, Angelica Panganiban, Bangs Garcia, Jhong Hilario, Helen Gamboa, Sharlene San Pedro, Carmen Soo, Guji Lorenzana and Archie Alemania.
Segunda Mano (which was first rumored to be entitled “Till Death Do Us Part”) is directed by first time Horror director Ms. Joyce Bernal.
