Another scream fest from Regal and Reality

THE Monteverdes – Mother Lily, daughter Roselle and son Dondon – together with director Erik Matti dabble in their first-ever joint venture for Regal Entertainment, Inc. and Reality Entertainment to bring to theaters the horror-suspense movie, Resureksyon.

The film’s trailer alone is proof of the Monteverdes’ expertise in delivering the kind of horror projects movie audience love.

Resureksyon boasts state-of-the-art special effects and sound made even more exciting by the unique execution of thrilling scenes that are sure to send chills down the audience’s spine.

Regal is top when it comes to producing horror movies.

The company holds the distinction of producing the longest-running and most successful horror film franchise, Shake, Rattle & Roll, in local film history.

In addition to this, they have released other horror blockbusters like Tiyanak, Manananggal In The City and more. Regal is also responsible for introducing various images of vampires, tikbalangs, dwarves and more.

As for Reality Entertainment, they brought the quality of horror movies to a notch higher via its maiden offering, Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles.

Since then, it has established itself as a new force to reckon with on the local film scene.

Prior to that, it produced the much talked about action film, On The Job, here and abroad.

And now, the two companies have joined forces and bankrolled Resureksyon.”

Isabelle Daza, as Mara, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith, as Aila, are sisters in the movie. Orphaned at a young age. Mara decides to try her luck and work abroad.

Aila frowns at the thought of her sister leaving the country but is later convinced that it’s Mara’s way to give her only son (played by Raikko Matteo as Migs) a better future.

Unfortunately, tragedy strikes and Mara is brought back home in a coffin.

Terror grips the entire town when Mara comes back from the dead and vampires begin to roam and pry on the townsfolk.

It was then that Aila realizes her sister wants to be reunited with her son Migs.

With the help of police officer Javier (played by Paulo Avelino), authorities deal with Mara and her band of vampires to save Aila and Migs from harm.
