Earlier this year, Star Cinema's indie arm Skylight Films produced Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang. The film now ranks among the top Filipino films of the year and has earned the distinction of being the most successful indie-movie in the country in terms of box-office earnings.
This month, a follow-up movie of the same genre will be released with Angel Aquino leading the cast. Amorosa: The Revenge tells the story of Rosa and her two sons Amiel (Martin del Rosario) and Rommel (Enrique Gil).
Amorosa is described as a psychological horror film in a family drama. Personally, I call it, the horror movie with the most beautiful cast. It tells the story of a family that is trying to put their lives back together after a tragedy ripped it apart. Rosa (Angel Aquino) hoped that a change in scenery will bring them some much-needed peace of mind but a ghost from their sordid past is set on making her confront her own demons that she tried so hard to run away from.
Amorosa is directed by Topel Lee (Quija). It is showing in cinemas nationwide on August 29, 2012.
