Watching a scary movie this Halloween may not be possible in cinemas this year, but this does not stop Star Cinema to let us feel the Halloween vibes.
Last October 30, the production company released its newest horror film U-turn, featuring Kim Chiu, on Ktx.ph, Sky Cable (Pay-Per-View), Cignal Cable (Pay-Per-View), and iWant TFC.
The film is available for streaming from October 30 until November 12 for only 150 pesos.
This mystery-horror film directed by Derick Cabrido is actually an adaptation of the 2016 Indian movie of the same title. The original movie directed by Pawan Kumar is the first-ever Kannada film that has been remade in Filipino.
U-turn follows the story of Donna Suarez (Kim Chiu), a reporter who runs across a strange case, which she suspects as a suicide. However, a similar case shows up after a few days. Determined to get the ‘break’ that she has been waiting for as a reporter, she invests all of her time investigating these cases. With the help of a police officer, Donna will try to find the connection between the strange deaths hoping to nab the culprit behind it.
Powered by CineXpress, U-Turn is the latest digital initiative of ABS-CBN Films that provides an opportunity for Filipinos here and abroad to catch original and new Filipino movies at the comfort of their homes.
In an interview, the lead actress shared that this is the scariest film she ever done. “As in nagugulat talaga ako noong di-nub ko siya. May parts na medyo hindi malinaw ‘yung lines ko, kailangan ko siyang i-dub. So, mayroon na siyang sound effects and visual effects, nabuo na ‘yung pelikula [basically], nabuo na ‘yung scene, so nagugulat ako. Jumpscare and at the same time, iba ‘yung feeling,”
Kim, who got viral because of the “bawal lumabas” video, also appeared in some blockbuster films such as Ghost Bride (2017), The Healing (2012), and Shake, Rattle and Roll X (2008).
