Best Filipino Neo Noir
11 March 2018 | by ramastercalopeSee all my reviews

I really like the film overall but there were some technical problems on the way to the climax of the film. One was the sound design of the footsteps as the priest walks on the wooden floor of the old building. Two is the shutter angle problem of the lightning strike or I'm guessing it was a light striking from outside the windows to fake a lightning strike.
