This Wednesday, November 22, meet the new face of horror–Marita.
Known as one of the greatest actresses in her university's theater production, Marita was not pleased when younger and more talented actors started to come in. She considered them her competitors, and true enough, she was displaced from the limelight by some of them.
But Marita refused to be totally forgotten, so she gave one last shocking performance. She committed suicide in front of the audience.
Viva Films takes these true events into a movie form, written and directed by Roni Benaid, the same fellow that gave us the hit supernatural horror thriller, Mary Cherry Chua.
Marita stars Louise Delos Reyes as Sandra, a new professor in the College of Arts, Ashtine Olviga as Cristina, with Rhen Escaño playing the title role.
After so many years, it’s been decided that the university’s official theater group will be revived, and Sandra is assigned to handle it. She calls for auditions, and mostly freshmen and sophomore students heed the call. Socorro Hall, which has a creepy vibe, is re-opened for their use.
The actors are chosen. Workshops are ongoing. The production is set. But something sinister is trying to stop them.
Cristina, the lead actress, hears a woman’s voice whenever she rehearses her lines. Props are either getting ruined or disappearing. Freak accidents are making everyone feeling more stressed.
Sandra has heard about the ghost of Marita, but chose to ignore it before. This time, she needs to take it seriously as Marita will do everything to get the spotlight back to her. More than the production, lives are at stake.
For Marita, the curse must go on! Don’t miss it. It opens in cinemas on Wednesday, November 22, 2023.
The film—which also stars JD Axie, Taneo Sebastian, Sarah Joe, Ethan David, and Yumi Garcia—will have its red-carpet premiere tomorrow, November 21, at the SM Megamall Cinemas.
