From the imagination of Yam Laranas, the movie follows the story of Shirley, an all-around house helper who answered an ad for a quick three-day job to take care of a sick man. Ellen, the inhospitable wife, readily tells her the three important house rules: First, keep the doors and windows shut; Second, stay locked inside the house; and third, don’t get inside their room without permission.
Shirley shares a room with the couple’s young daughter, and observes that the child is a terrified mess. She tells Ellen about it, only to be forbidden to interfere in whatever she sees going on around the house. After the child tells Shirley that the man is not her father, nerve-racking incidents one after another are revealed to her. And she will not be spared from it.
This film perfect for Halloween is co-directed by Aloy Adlawan and Jules Katanyag. Both had written the screenplays of some of the biggest horror movies in Philippine cinema.
Adlawan is known for his work in “Ouija” which was awarded PinakaPasadong Dulang Pampelikula at the 10th Pasado Gawad Sining Sine by the Pampelikulang Samahan ng mga Dalubguro, and the highly-acclaimed “Signus” which won numerous awards, such as Best Foreign Film at the 2007 Lone Star International Film Festival in Texas and won Best International Thriller at the 2008 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival. He also wrote “Sundo”, “T2”, “Tumbok”, “Third Eye”, and segments in “Shake, Rattle and Roll” movies.
Katanyag’s body of work as a writer includes “Shake, Rattle and Roll” (12 and 13), “Bampirella” (TV series, 2011), “Darna” (TV series, 2009), and “Victor Magtanggol” (TV series, 2018). As a director, he won the Special Jury Prize in Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival for the movie “Si Magdalola at ang mga Gago” (2016).
Yam Laranas, who gave us the movie “The Echo” (also known as “Sigaw” which won for him a Special Award at the Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Film), serves as the Creative Head.
With the remarkable background of the filmmakers, it’s no wonder why Andi Eigenmann accepted the role. The actress is no longer a city girl and now prefers to live near the ocean, as evident in her Instagram posts. Andi won Best Actress in the 2016 FAMAS Awards for the movie “Angela Markado”.
“ALL SOULS NIGHT” also stars Yayo Aguila, Allan Paule and new child star, Lhian Gimeno.
