We saw all these classic horror films, luckily. And we never forgot the fear and the terror we felt when we saw these terrifying films at a young age!
There were other horror films we saw in our forty seven years of existence here on earth. But the ten films listed below were truly unforgettable for this blogger.
They are immortal film classics! If you have time in this week-long holiday vacation of Halloween, All Saints Day & All Souls Day, better grab DVD tapes of these films and watch it alone in your room! For sure, you’ll get the creeps! Bwahahaha!!! Hope you’ll like my choices.
I will never forget these films, really.
Especially ‘The Blairwitch Project” which didn’t make me sleep all week-long when I first saw it. Oh my!!! Happy Halloween to all avid followers of my blog! Enjoy this feature. I made it just for…
Singer-actor Lance Raymundo found it strange that he was the only person in the cast and crew of Khavn de la Cruz’s latest film, the sci-fi musical “Edsa XXX,” spared from reported hauntings on the movie’s set on Corregidor Island—a famous World War II battleground.
“Costar Sheree Bautista set up an altar in her hotel room,” Raymundo recounted. “She brought along an anti-aswang kit—rock salt, garlic and holy water.”
He surmised that he was snubbed by the specters because he had grown up in a haunted home.
“Maybe the ghosts didn’t find me challenging since I was used to them,” he said in jest. “My mom also prayed for me before I left for Corregidor.”
As a kid, he and his family witnessed all sorts of paranormal activities in their old house, which they eventually abandoned. “We learned from a psychic that our old home stood on burial ground dating back to the last war, just like Corregidor.”
In an ironic twist, he and costars Bautista and Epy Quizon play pale-faced spirits in “Edsa XXX.”
Raymundo had to juggle various characters in the film—including three female roles. He said: “I play an activist, a vampire, internationally celebrated filmmaker Ishmael Brocka, townsfolk, MMDA warrior, arnis fighter, rock star, mermaid, bar girl and bored housewife.”
Needless to say, it was a “challenging” task—specifically, crossing gender lines. “I had to keep in mind that I wasn’t a cross-dresser, but a real woman.”

“Angelica Panganiban, John Lloyd Cruz relationship in 4th month”Sayang at hindi nakarating si Angelica Panganiban sa press preview ng indi film niyang Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi na ginanap sa Imperial Palace Suites last Thursday night dahil naitanong namin sana sa kanya ang tungkol sa ginawa niyang kanta for John Lloyd Cruz titled Barcelona.Ginawa ni Angelica ang kanta noong t
ime na nasa Barcelona siya at ngayon ay ginamit sa pelikula bilang isa sa mga sound tracks. Si Glaiza de Castro na isa rin sa cast ng movie ang naglagay ng musika at siya na rin ang kumanta.
In fairness, ang sarap pakinggan ng song dahil malamig sa tenga and very inspiring pa.
Dahil nga wala si Angelica para matanong namin, ang direktor at scriptwriter ng movie na si Dante Nico “Ga” Garcia (na siya ring nagdirek ng Ploning ni Judy Ann Santos) ang tinanong namin tungkol sa relasyon ng aktres at ni Loydie.
We learned from him na 12 years na pala silang magkaibigan ni Angel at siya pa ang nagpakilala rito kay Derek Ramsay noon na humantong nga sa isang matagal na relasyon.
Kinumpirma na ni Direk Ga ang relasyong Angel-Loydie at aniya ay may permiso naman daw ito ng dalawa. Ayon sa direktor, sa tingin niya ay may 4 months na raw ang relasyon ng mga ito.
Nakita rin namin ang video nina Direk Ga, Angel, Glaiza at Loydie kung saan ay nagba-bonding sila sa bahay ng aktres. Sa nasabing video ay sweet na sweet ang showbiz couple at may eksena pang hinalikan ng aktor ang rumored GF. Una ay sa kamay, then sa lips kaya sigawan ang mga reporters.
Sa nasabing video ay panay ang titigan nina Loydie at Angel habang nagkukuwentuhan at inuman, say nga ni Direk Ga, pati siya ay kinikilig sa dalawa.
May moment din ng seryosong usapan kung saan ay sinasabi ni Angelica kung gaano nila kamahal ang isa’t isa at kung gaano sila kasaya ngayon.
“Mahal na mahal kita, mahal na mahal mo ’ko,” say ni Angel.
Sabi naman ni Loydie, “sorry, world, may ganito palang feeling,” sabay-halik sa kamay ni Angel saka tumayo at hinalikan sa lips.
Ayon kay Direk Ga ay may permiso rin naman daw nina Loydie at Angel na ipakita sa press ang nasabing video dahil may feeling na nga siya na tatanungin siya sa relasyon ng dalawa.
Samantala, may mga ilang sexy scenes si Angel sa #Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi at sa totoo lang, sobrang lakas ng sex appeal ng young actress na tipong kahit walang dialogue ay ang sexy-sexy niya tingnan.
Direk Ga explained na kaya may hashtag (#) sa title ng movie ay dahil sa Nov. 7 kasabay ng showing nito sa SM Cinemas ay ipalalabas din ito sa TFC (The Filipino Channel) all over the world via pay per view.
“Tinawagan ako ng TFC na tinanong nila ako kung puwedeng experimental, noong una kasi ang title lang niya, Madaling Araw, Mahabang Gabi, pero nu’ng sinabi ng TFC, pwede bang experimental, for the first time ever na available sa Pilipinas sa mga sinehan, available rin sa abroad on line?’
“So, sabi ko, sige, kung doon makakabawi. So, doon nawala ’yung coma at naging #Madaling Araw Mahabang Gabi. Para ’pag nag-tweet si Angelica na panoorin n’yo ’yung movie, hindi lang sa Pilipinas ito but all over the world,” paliwanag ni Direk Ga.
Bukod kay Angel at Glaiza, kasama rin sa pelikula sina Edgar Allan Guzman, Kean Cipriano, Karel Marquez Buboy Garovillo, Tutti Caringal, Karel Marquez, Rocco Nacino, Alchris Galura, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Callum David, Dominic Roco, Lou Veloso and Ms. Cherie Gil.
She’s the daughter of famous beauty queen-actress Maria Isabel Lopez.
A student from De La Salle University.
But acting is her passion….
Now, her biggest acting break came via the movie “Palitan”, one of the film entries in this coming Cinema One Originals Film Festival (though she has appeared in other indie film productions, we could say that her acting challenge in the movie “Palitan”, tested her great passion for acting).
