Cinema One, the leading cable channel in the country, unveils “Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay” on Blockbuster Sundays on October 26 at 8 pm. The film is the first horror movie of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, fondly called KathNiel, today’s hottest teen love team.
“Pagpag…” tells the story of Cedric (Daniel) who goes to a funeral set up by Leni (Kathryn). Cedric and his barkada and Leni fail to follow the superstitious belief of “pagpag,” i.e., going somewhere else before heading home after visiting a wake. Instead, the friends immediately proceed to their respective houses, unknowingly bringing malevolent spirits into their personal spaces and jeopardizing the lives of their families.
Directed by Frasco Mortiz, “Pagpag” was among the highest-grossing film entries in the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival. “From its production design to its lighting, overall aesthetic is especially well-crafted,” said Rappler.com’s Zig Marasigan, The reviewer also credited the director for “pulling no punches with his body count.”
Call your family and friends, bring out the soft drinks and popcorn, and have a chilling good time as you all watch “Pagpag” on Cinema One, Channel 56 on SkyCable and Channel 61 on Destiny. Cinema One, the country’s number one cable channel is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. For the latest updates and schedules, like Cinema One on Facebook and follow @cinema_one on Twitter.
