I love horror movies and I love stories of Aswang. I was curious about how Aswang started from stories of friends and families way back so I attended the Grand Presscon of Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang last Feb. 29 at the Dolphy Theater of ABS-CBN. Starring Erich Gonzales and Derek Ramsay with Mark Gil, Tetchi Agbayani, Epi Quizon, Mon Confiado, Dan Alvaro, Sue Prado, Sharlene San Pedro, Bodgie Pascua and Ms. Maria Isabel Lopez, "Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang" will try to explain the myth in a drama-love story directed by Richard Somes.
It's a horror, drama-love story set in the WWII era where Erich and Derek play a childless husband and wife whose love for each other and spiritual faith is put to the test. I was curious on how "aswang" started so I'm so interested to know what the movie was about. First-time movie director and noted former Production Designer Richard Somes previously made "Yanggaw" an Ilonggo horror indie film produced in 2008 with Ronnie Lazaro. He was constantly praising the stars for their notable performances in the movie and I can't wait to watch the scenes he revealed on the "aswang" movie that uses no prosthetics.
Derek Ramsay was extremely thoughtful with the press answering all questions about the movie and he really looked sincere about his projects in Star Cinema and ABS-CBN. I have grown more respect to Derek Ramsay and Erich Gonzales who also answered all the questions with tact and truthfulness.
I can't wait to hear stories of similar plot after the movie opens on March 14, 2012. "Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang" is presented by Skylight Films, Reality Entertainment and Star Cinema.
I am so excited to watch this movie already. Love the story, the horror, the computer graphics and the myth of Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang. Don't miss it opening in over 100 theaters nationwide on March 14, 2012.
