A unique Valentine movie experience

In February, chills and goose bumps await moviegoers, and why?

GMA Films and Reality Entertainment will release the first horror film of the year.

Titled Basement, it stars GMA Artist Center’s artists Aljur Abrenica, Chynna Ortaleza, Louise Delos Reyes, Kristoffer Martin, Enzo Pineda, Dion Ignacio, Kevin Santos, Jan Manual, Ron Padilla, Teejay Marquez, Mona Louise Rey together with Alvin Aragon, Carl Acosta, and Dex Quindoza. Completing the cast are Betong Sumaya, Ellen Adarna, and Pilita Corrales.

Set in the year 2010, a group of people find themselves trapped in a basement parking lot. At the onset, some are irritated while some don’t even give a damn knowing they can easily go out the next day.

But when the power shuts off and as it gets close to midnight, strange things start to happen. They soon discover that something evil lurks in the darkness as, mysteriously, their numbers dwindle and one by one people begin to disappear. Who will be able to survive the night?

Some cast members recall their creepiest experience while shooting the film. Dion Ignacio shares how uncomfortable he was just being on the location, “Yung location pa lang talaga nakaramdam na talaga ko ng takot.”

Even Enzo Pineda can’t get over how scary the set was, “It was during a fight scene and the set was quiet and dark before we started so I felt that something was watching me from the dark.”

Meanwhile, Chynna Ortaleza remembers how her personal things got lost during taping, “Well, natakot ako pagpasok ko sa tent kasi biglang nawala mga gamit ko. Iniwan ko ‘yun bago mag-take na nasa pwesto ko and when I came back my things were missing. There are real monsters in this world.”

Directed by Topel Lee, Basement will definitely give viewers a different level of thrill, fear and excitement. Get ready to hold the hand of your date and brace yourself for their embrace as thrills and screams await those who dare watch Basement.
