Seance (2007) @ Ouija

The BEST eCigarette
At a glance:
The spirit of the glass deserves better than this Filipino caper where Final Destination-meets-Ju-On, released internationally as Seance or so I read. Actually, movies from the Philippines are kinda amusin because they always speak the first part of the sentence in Tagalog and then the rest in English. However, this ploddin movie has too little goin for it and wouldda ended up in some film market's buy-one-free-two bargain bin if not for the hot girls.
Bad news on the doorstep:
It's a shyte film, what can I say? It is however, more watchable than, say, Siquijor: Mystic Island but that's not sayin much.
Reminds me of:
Mavic (pronounced Marvey, innit Ons?) whom I was supposed to take to watch this, before she bloody disappeared.
Watch out for:
Iza Calzado (top pic, centre), a real fine piece of Filipina fruit. Looks like a more chiselled version of Sarimah Ibrahim. Apparently got into the public eye after a Pantene ad and counts her cellular as her most treasured item. What a bimbo. Very nice.
Most memorable line:
"I don't want to be bitten by a snake, I don't even have a love life yet". And yes, in that accent. Fuckin hilarious.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
One and a half. Sad excuse for a movie but probably did good things for the girls' profiles and got them into the good books of GMA Films.
