The Film Development Board’s Grade A is overrated. I don’t believe that there’s good acting in this film (well, Jolens is fine). Yes, it is technically well crafted (sound editing, cinematography and make-up) but there’s nothing edgy or unforgettable. Pati ang kuwento, ang babaw. The material can still be optimized. Sayang pa naman ‘yung allegedly eh parody sa pagiging magkakapamilya ng mga bidang babae. Pwede pang palalimin. Kung merong maganda sa film, ito ‘yung non-stop na tilian ng mga moviegoers. Ito na siguro ang film na napanood ko sa sinehan na halos hindi na tumigil ang pagtili ng mga tao. Pogi Points ‘to sa side ng director.
Friends who might appreciate it: those who want a good scare (and a good laugh).

Fine acting. Fine direction. Fine script. The only thing missing: social relevance.
Friends who might appreciate it: those who wish to watch a feel-good, honest-to-goodness film.
