There is no way a house like that would have been built so close to the shore line, the first high tide combined with a storm swell would have washed it away. See more »

Aurora: Pretty, but poor
27 April 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Me and the Philippines just don't seem to be on the same page, this is only the third Filipino movie I've seen and despite it only getting a 3/10 it's still the best of the bunch!

It tells the story of a small island community, they're reeling from a ship wreck that is still visible from their shores. They're living in poverty due to the side effects of the disaster but some people are determined to see about locating the dead so they can be laid to rest. But yes this is a horror so ghostly things are afoot.

I liked the premise, it's a pretty movie with interesting characters and I was curious which direction they were going to go with it. Alas it became apparent around the half way mark that the direction wasn't a good one and certainly not an original one.

The movie is dark, bleak but looks great for a movie from the Philippines. Sadly however it's one of those silly supernatural movies that makes the rules up as it goes along and ultimately doesn't make a vast amount of sense.

I get what they were going for, I just think they failed miserably.

Regardless this is still the best movie I've seen the country put out.

The Good:

Some great visuals

Interesting concepts

The Bad:

Falls apart badly

Certain aspects make little to no sense
