The Exorsis is making its way to the cinemas for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) on Dec. 25. The movie is a horror-comedy feature starring siblings and comedic duo Toni Gonzaga and Alex Gonzaga.
Following their film Mary, Marry Me in 2018, the Gonzaga sisters return to the MMFF to bring another treat for the whole family.
In the movie Toni is Gina and Alex is Dani. They are sisters with very much different personalities. Gina is a formal, goal-oriented person, while Dani is more of a free spirit, living life on a day-to-day basis. Being orphans, it has been Gina’s responsibility as the eldest to take care of their family, and her grocery business has been able to provide for her and her sister’s needs.
Fate makes a way for Gina’s unfulfilled dreams to come true when an opportunity abroad comes knocking on her door, but she becomes hesitant to grab this chance in fear that Dani, her reckless and irresponsible sister, will not be able to manage her growing grocery business.
One eerie night, a mysterious girl named Leng-Leng passes by and unfortunately falls into an accident right in front of Gina’s grocery store and dies. Her spirit wanders, finds Dani, and takes over her body. Now possessed by Leng-Leng, Dani tries to attack everyone she meets, including her sister. Dani’s condition worsens, and Gina finds a way to help and protect her sister, and save Dani from the evil spirit of Leng-Leng that refuses to leave her body.
Co-produced by Viva Films and TinCan film production, this is Alex and Toni’s reunion project. It is directed by up-and-coming director, Fifth Solomon, who is also Alex’s good friend and the director of her film Nakalimutan Ko Nang Kalimutan Ka.
