Corazon Ang Unang Aswang Official TrailerFeb 28
The first official trailer of Corazon Ang Unang Aswang movie has been released! Star Cinema and their indie arm, Skylight Films, are going to bring us a horror movie about a woman named Corazon and how the Aswang legend started.
I would have loved a longer trailer though. From Corazon movie trailer, we can say that the film boasts good cinematography and musical score. The camera movements and lighting adds up to the eerie atmosphere which makes the film a creepy delight. And the music fluctuated in the later part of the trailer gives us of a spine-chilling thought that it came from a witch/cult chant somewhere in the woods.
I do know, however, that Richard Somes is a great production designer and director. With his previous horror movies, Yanggaw and Shake Rattle and Roll 2K5: Ang Lihim Ng San Joaquin, I am hoping for a visually stunning piece and a great horror movie as well.
In the trailer we see a pig-faced monster which reminds us of the pig-face jigsaw killer (from James Wan’s SAW franchise). Even so, if we are to base their concept to the Aswang myth; Somes’ concept of his monster seems legit and quite original for Aswangs are said to be shape-shifting monsters that usually takes the form of pigs. A lot of Aswang stories have been told from generations to generations, in Regal Film’s recent Aswang film we learned about the “Abwaks”. This time around let’s go back into time as this period horror will introduce us to the pig-faced type of Aswangs. I hope they have a name of that.
Like My Cactus Heart, this movie was filmed for a quite a long time. They started shooting around May 2010 or so I thought. The thing is, they devoted some real time, years if I may assume to get this movie done. And I’m hoping for the best on this one.
CORAZON Ang Unang Aswang starring Erich Gonzales, Derek Ramsay, directed by Richard Somes. In theaters on March 14, 2012.
