Movie theater chain SM Cinema has launched its first-ever Sine Sindak Film Festival, where five horror movies will be screened at all SM Cinema locations across the country at special pricing.
Running from Oct. 24–30, the film festival brings several spooky films that fans can watch for only PHP99 (US$1.83) each. All day movie passes are also available for only PHP199 (US$3.68) — viewers can use this if they want to binge-watch several movies in one day.
These are the films the public can catch in theaters nationwide:
Darkness Rising by Austin Reading
Plot: A survivor of a massacre revisits her childhood home with her friends, where she comes face-to-face with the memories of her past.
Starring: Tara Holt, Katrina Law, Heather Mazur, and Ted Raimi
The Dead Room by Jason Stutter
Plot: Inspired by an urban legend in New Zealand, the film is about three ghost hunters who are hired to investigate a house that’s believed to be haunted.
Starring: Jed Brophy, Jeffrey Thomas, and Laura Petersen
The Hoarder by Matt Winn
Plot: A killer stalks a woman who ends up getting trapped in an underground storage facility.
Starring: Mischa Barton, Robert Knepper, and Valene Kane
The Hollow One by Nathan Hendrickson
Plot: Years after their mother dies under suspicious circumstances, two sisters return to their hometown to discover its inhabitants behaving in a strange, bizarre manner.
Starring: Kate Alden, Jesse James, and Chelsea Farthing
Plot: This one’s actually a collection of three award-winning short films coming from South Korea’s horror movie market. We’re not entirely sure what each one is about yet — we did piece together that one of them is based on the ‘eoduksini,’ a supernatural, ghost-like creature in Korean mythology — but just watching this trailer alone was bone-chilling. That’s 1 minute 50 seconds of our day that we’ll need the rest of the afternoon to recover from.
Starring: Lee Hak-Joo, Cho Yong-Jin, and Ha Yoon-Kyung
