The Elemental of Water “Ilawod” Haunts in Dan Villegas’ First Horror Pic

Ilawod is the story of a family’s breakdown in the midst of a demonic attack. Dennis, a reporter, accidentally invites the ilawod–the elemental of water that flows downstream–into his home, where it latches onto his young son, Ben. What follows is a battle for not just the family’s lives, but their souls as well.
