Award-winning Filipino director Erik Matti’s follow-up to last year’s excellent action film “BuyBust” is finally ready and we have the first trailer for the horror film “Kuwaresma” right here, an epic team-up that sees Matti join hands with two of Filipino cinema’s biggest superstars.


Not much is known of the plot so far, but “Kuwaresma” sees a man return home to find out the reason behind the passing of his young sister, only to discover the secrets and horrors within his family.

Matti is no stranger to the horror genre, with his last horror film “Seklusyon” earning him the best director award at the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival. The very atmospheric trailer also introduces Filipino icon Sharon Cuneta in her first horror film role and also her first collaboration with Matti, one she calls a “dream come true”. This is also the first time that she is paired with superstar John Arcilla.

The film will release on May 15th, 2019.
