The Metro Manila Film Festival 2016 has officially started… but a few days before Erik Matti’s “Seklusyon” went public in the big screen we got to chat with the cast of this horror movie in an exclusive press conference last December 22, 2016 in cooperation with HOOQ, Asia’s largest video-on-demand service.
Apart from the presscon however, we were given special access to the Celebrity Screening of Seklusyon, one of the most anticipated entries at the MMFF 2016 thanks to HOOQ HANGOUTS. (Unfortunately, I never got to watch because I am scared!)
“We started HOOQ HANGOUTS a few months ago to provide a forum to showcase the vast library of HOOQ, particularly our local content which spans almost five decades. That is why we are ending the year with this HOOQ HANGOUTS featuring an exclusive screening of Seklusyon, produced by Reality Entertainment, which incidentally is also our partner in creating OTJ: The Series,” says Jane Cruz-Walker, HOOQ Philippines Country Manager.
This horror flick has been garnering positive appraisals from the time it debut at the current Macau International Film Festival.
The movie stars Ronnie Alonte Neil Ryan Sese, Lou Veloso, Rhed Bustamante, Phoebe Walker, Elora Espano, Dominique Roque, John Vic De Guzman and JR Versales. Set in the 1940s, the movie follows a young deacon (Alonte) who hides from the devil in a sacred sanctuary seven days before he is ordained as a priest.
HOOQ has been in teaming up with the MMFF and with film makers, both major and indie, to get MMFF entries available for us to watch via HOOQ.
