Director Frasco Mortiz responded when his horror film ‘The Heiress’ was not chosen in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival last November 14.
“Actually, may feeling na ako na nung hindi kami nakapasok sa first four, sa scripting, siyempre may kaba na kasi may pressure na kailangan naming buuin ang pelikula para ma-submit ng September 21 sa finished film,” director Frasco Mortiz said in an interview with PUSH.
“Pero nag-worry na kami nung hindi natuloy yung pelikula nina Ms. Kris Aquino at Derek (Ramsay) na horror (Kampon) and then pinalitan ng Sunod na horror din (starring Carmina Villarroel) so medyo may kaba na kami na, ‘Ay, may horror na kinuha. May kaba ka na baka hindi makapasok kasi may kinuha ng horror,” he added.
He admitted that it’s still okay for him that his film was not chosen, and that may lessen the pressure on their part.
“Nung nalaman namin na yon nga, finally, hindi kami nakapasok, parang may tinik din na nawala kasi nando’n yung kaba at may pressure na rin pag MMFF, eh. Parang kailangan maging top 3 ka man lang o top 4 para assured ka na kumita, so may pressure kaagad na nawala, na parang okey, nakahinga ka na nang malalim,” he said.
The horror film ‘The Heiress’ was intentionally made by Regal Entertainment for the 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival. The stars of the said film were Maricel Soriano, Janella Salvador, Sunshine Cruz, and McCoy de Leon.
“So I make sure na pag nanood yung mga tao hindi siya yung, ‘Ay, aabangan ko na lang sa online. Feeling ko naman yung ginawa naming pelikula is something na worth watching. Kasi iba yung horror kapag nasa sinehan ka, mas nakakatakot. For me, it’s an experience na worth it panoorin sa cinema,” he added.
The said film will set to premiere on Philippine cinemas starting November 27.
