Today the much awaited horror film of the year is finally open! The Healing which stars , the “Star for All Seasons” – Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto, Kim Chiu and Pokwang and directed by famed director, Chito Rono.
After a decade, highly acclaimed-director Direk Chito and Ate Vi is back to offer another unforgettable horror experience.
The Healing is a screenplay written by renowned writer, Roy Iglesias. As Governor Vi narrates,” The Healing is a totally a new brand of suspense-horror that will surely make a mark in the Philippine horror cinema. Stories about the Filipino tradition of going to faith healers for guidance and treatment of ailments have not yet been tackled in-depth in movies. And in our film, the viewers will not just be horrified, they’ll be somehow challenged to think as how faith healing has already been part of our culture."
This movie is very special as it also marks Gov. Vi’s 50th Anniversary in showbiz. During the bloggers conference, Gov. Vi shares that she specifically requested for this movie, and to attest to this, Direk Chito said that “The Healing” is tailor-made just for “The Star-for-All-Seasons”.
“The Healing” not only boosts of its content but also the powerhouse casts that it has! Star Cinema also gathered Kim Chui, Janice de Belen, Mark Gil,Pokwang, Martin del Rosario, Allan Paule, Cris Villanueva, Daria Ramirez, Ces Quesada, Ynez Veneracion, Simon Ibarra, Abi Bautista and Joel Torre. The line-up of casting proves that the movie bridges the gap of generation with the varied participation of the other actors in the movie.
I am excited to see this movie also because this is my first time to see Kim Chiu in a Horror genre-film. I would like to see how flexible she is with a different genre this time.
The Healing has been the first movie given by the Cinema Evaluation Board with two kinds of rating. The first one is with R-13 and R-18 Director’s Cut. So don’t be confused if you get to see two ratings once you troop to the nearest cinema near you!
