FOX produces its first local film “Maledicto”


Some of my all-time favorite series were produced by FOX - 24, Fringe, The Sarah Connor Chronicles to name a few. So I got pretty interested when it was reported that FOX produced a film locally. 

Fox Networks Group Philippines is poised to give us a good scare with its first-ever locally-produced horror film Maledicto, set to show in cinemas nationwide this coming May 1. Co-produced by Cignal Entertainment and Unitel, and directed by Mark Meily, Maledicto is a chilling tale that will surely get under your skin. 

Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX Networks Group Philippines, Jude Turcuato, shares his excitement for the upcoming film:

"Maledicto is a really big feat for FNG, being the first ever film we’ve produced locally, with an all-Filipino cast at that. With Maledicto under our belt, we’re hoping to elevate Filipino cinema to one of a Hollywood pedigree.”

Maledicto stars Tom Rodriguez as Father Xavi, a former psychologist who becomes a skeptical exorcist following the tragic death of his sister, Mara (played by Inah de Belen). He meets Sister Barbie (played by Jasmine Curtis-Smith), a young nun who has the gift of charism (I had to look this one up and it means "grace or talent granted by God to a special person".  Together, they face the case of Agnes (Miles Ocampo), a seemingly perfect teenager who starts manifesting demonic behavior that rocks the foundations of the church. 

Other cast members include Eric Quizon, Martin Escudero, Franco Laurel, Nonie Buencamino, Liza Lorena, and Menggie Cobarrubias. 

The lead actors have also expressed enthusiasm on being part of FOX’s first film, saying it was an opportunity to play roles that stray from the norm of romance and loveteams. They have happily accepted the challenge, and are excited to bring the characters to life.

Turcuato adds, “We have always prided ourselves in creating original content that would speak to our audience on a personal level, and I feel that Maledicto will do just that, because faith and belief are things that are innate in almost everyone. More than a horror movie, it is an invitation to look inside ourselves and assess what we truly believe in. We hope that this film will offer a fresh perspective.”
