"Eerie" Brings Bea Alonzo To Singapore's International Film Festival
Should you be afraid of Eerie's atmospheric frights and well-timed jumpscares? Sure.
Should you be ready with a hand to hold when you watch it at the theater? Definitely.
Should you be excited for Bea's top-notch performance? Heck yes.
She's the next actress to successfully cross over from one film genre to another, proving that her acting chops are a force to contend with in Mikhail Red's newest flick, Eerie.
Shedding her image as a free-spirited rom-com darling to take on the role of Patricia, a somber guidance counselor at a Catholic girls academy who must work with the restless dead to help solve a grisly crime, Bea convincingly draws us into her world of inexplicable horrors in this heart-racing cinematic treat.
Starring alonside her are Philippine television icon Charo Santos-Concio who plays the academy's Mother Superior, Maxene Magalona who fulfills the role of a fellow nun, and Jake Cuenca who'll be an invaluable ally to the film's protagonists.
Recognizing Bea's feat is the Singapore International Film Festival where Eerie was previewed to an excited audience on December 3 at the Capitol Theater. (For those in Singapore at this time, you'll be able to catch a screening if you move quickly; tickets have almost run out!)
Most Filipinos, however, will have to wait until next year when Eerie is slated to hit local cinemas.
The 31-year-old actress kicked off premier night activities by stepping onto the red carpet in a custom made black crystal, strappy Patty Ang number accessorized with ostrich feathers, while director Mikhail Red in a classic tux, Jake Cuenca in an ivory ensemble, and Charo Santos-Concio in timeless black and white got cameras flashing.
Eerie is expected to be Mikhail Red's next big hit after 2016's Birdshot and 2017's Neomanila.
The horror movie wil also be Bea's follow up to her Paul Soriano-directed love story, First Love, which depicted her as a quirky, outgoing beauty who changes the life of the man she gives her heart to.
