One of the official entry of Metro Manila film festival 2012, The Strangers.
Quantum Films and MJM Productions' newest venture will give moviegoers a whole new horror experience by taking you into a world where nothing is ever what it seems: the world of The Strangers.
What is the story line of The Strangers?
The Strangers focuses on a family of the five that tries to put aside their different on the eve of their kids' 18th birthday. Fraternal twins Pat (Julie Montes) and Max (Enrique Gil) prepare to go their annual out-of-town trip. Accompanied by their parents Roy (Johnny Revilla) and Evelyn (Cherry Pie Picache), their grandparent Pete (Jaime Fabregas) and his temporary caretaker Paloma (Janine de Belen), as well as their newly-hired driver Toning (Nico Antonio), they set off for the far-flung town of Murcia.
Whatever problems they had with each other fade away as they head for Murcia. But their happiness comes to a screeching halt when their van hits an old lady, persumably killing her. Shaken, they get out of the van to see if they can help her - and find that her body has vanished into thin air. When night sets in, Toning is attacked by a mysterious creature, Roy and Lolo Pete go missing, and Evelyn, Pat, Max and Paloma are left stranded in the middle of nowhere.
They eventually find their way to a village, where they are besieged by a series of aswang attacks. Pat finds an ally in one of the villagers, a young man named Dolfo (Enchong Dee). They realize the only way to survive is to band together against the aswang terrorizing the village.
Whether or not they will survie is something moviegoers will find out when The Strangershits theaters as part of the MMFF on December 25.
