Film Review: Eerie (2019) by Mikhail Red

The much-anticipated Mikhail Red’s new movie “Eerie” is an excursus in the horror genre with a vintage feeling, and it is the first Filipino horror movie to have an international premiere in Singapore. A big media hype is accompanying the film everywhere, understandably generated by the impressive quality of the director’s previous body of work.

Eerie” screened at Udine Far East Film Festival

Eerie” is set in the mid ‘90,in an all-girl campus of the Sta. Lucia Academy, where school guidance counselor Patricia Consolacion (Bea Alonzo) has a special ability in communicating with troubled students. She is a dedicated and emphatic person and her gentle and friendly manners make the students at ease and allow the conversation to flow. Her great concern for one of the students who has a tendency to self-harm is genuine and seems to work, at least temporarily. But Bea’s gift of communication extends beyond the rational world,

Review: Philippine Horror Eerie is Paved with Good Intentions

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I am reminded of these lines when thinking of a throughline for the Mikhail Red-directed horror film Eerie. Storywise, the film delivers commentary on how our institutions and internalized preconceptions can be the barriers preventing us from helping those with mental illness. They may even cause further oppression, regardless of how sincere are the intentions. It’s a message that is both timely and gravely needed. However, true to the saying, intent is not enough. Though Eerie tries hard to convey profundity, the film struggles to articulate its message because of plot incoherence and its refusal to go beyond convention. Stories of our youth Eerie follows guidance counselor Pat Consolacion (Bea Alonzo) as she embarks on solving...

Sa'yo Lamang Review

The story of Laurice Guillen's Sa'yo Lamang is hardly new. An imperfect but seemingly stable family disintegrates into chaos as one by one, the family members figure serious conflicts and secrets, whether from the past or the present, conveniently unravel, threatening the sheen of normalcy that has sustained the family through the years. From Jeffrey Jeturian's low-budgeted but elegantly staged Sana Pag-ibig Na (Enter Love, 1998), to Wenn Deramas' lowbrow yet unpretentiously enjoyable Ang Tanging Ina (The Only Mother, 2003), to Joel Lamangan's middling and intolerably weepy Filipinas (2003), to Brillante Mendoza's highbrow and provocatively stirring Serbis (Service, 2008), the Filipino family has been exposed, crumbling in the midst of dire needs or expanding generation gaps or the simple passage of time.

 

The family, considered as an invaluable social element, is a persisting Filipino need. In the absence of it, a typical Filipino, in his desire to find personal comfort
