[WATCH] MMFF 2016: 'Seklusyon' trailer released
MANILA, Philippines – There's a creepy movie lined up for this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), and it has award-winning director Erik Matti at its helm. (FULL LIST: 8 MMFF 2016 entries revealed)
Seklusyon is set in 1947 and follows a deacon on his last 7 days before priesthood – a time when "the devil's attacks are strongest."
The movie stars Ronnie Alonte, Rhed Bustamante, Phoebe Walker, Elora Espano, Neil Ryan Sese, Lou Veloso, Dominique Roque, John Vic De Guzman, and JR Versales.
Seklusyon is Erik Matti's first MMFF entry after 2015's Honor Thy Father, which was the subject of controversy last year when it was disqualified from the Best Picture category of the festival's awards.
Seklusyon, along with all the other MMFF 2016 entries, is set to hit theaters on December 25. – Rappler.com
