This is one of the better Filipino suspense/horror films that, aside from being tightly written and beautifully shot, has shown a lot of commercial viability. A rare feat nowadays when you either have an empty formula film or non-commercially viable atmospheric horror classic.
Cinematography is superb, the green cast of the hospital int. shots are personal favorite. Although i've seen it on countless music videos and other horror films abroad, it worked because it serves the mood of the film well.
One flaw is the excessive use of familiar faces which took away some of the suspense, but then again, they may be one of the reason why the movie was made in the first place.
Over all - a good film that i would recommend. it raised the bar of Filipino horror-suspense films a notch. Stop reading and get a copy.
