Syowing this week [September 24, 2014 to September 30, 2014]

There's a whole lot of interesting films out in Iloilo silver screens this week. And I'm not just talking about the big crowd-pleasing ones. Just as the week began with the screening of the Lav Diaz masterpiece "Norte, Hangganan Ng Kasaysayan" brought to us by the organizations Dakila Iloilo and Rock-Ed Iloilo, the week of cinema continues with awesome movies which promise top quality entertainment. [hit the jump to continue]

First off, we already have the indie masterpiece "Rekorder" showing at the FDCP Cinematheque, by Mikhail Red, which has already screened in a number of international festivals. This is one visually-stunning movie which is on top of my personal priority list.

Another film which sparks this massive interest to me is "Dementia" by director Percival Intalan and stars the great Nora Aunor. The film is written by Percival Intalan himself, Renee Dimla, and Jun Robles Lana who is best known for having written and directed the multi-awarded "Bwakaw" and "Barber's Tales"

In "Dementia" Nora Aunor stars as Mara, a woman afflicted with dementia, putting her in conditions wherein she claims to be seeing things. In the hopes of helping deal with her dementia, Mara's niece takes her to their family's secluded estate. But things take a turn when Mara begins to feel and see the spirits that haunt the place. The film promises spine-tingling suspense and horror, and yes, I do consider it as a sure bet this week. 

And of course, also screening this week is the much-anticipated third chapter of the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy; "Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends". This third chapter will continue the battle to stop the terroristic army of Shishio from creating chaos all over Japan. This planned trilogy began last year with the first movie, the second one came a month ago, and now the third one comes. Rurouni Kenshin is based on the manga and anime of the same title which tells the tale of a sword-wielding assassin who has turned a new leaf, living a good life of peace and keeping a quest to help others with the use of his samurai sword which is specifically designed not to kill.

Also screening this week are "The Remaining" from director Casey La Scala who produced Donnie Darko, which tells the story of how a wedding celebration was interrupted by apocalyptic events, and "At The Devil's Door" which is a haunted house horror flick.

On extended run are the temple-run-esque "Maze Runner", the action thriller "A Walk Among The Tombstones" which is another "Liam Neeson kicks ass" kind of movie, and "Maria Leonore Teresa" which is about a haunted doll (kinda striking the iron off the Conjuring and Annabelle hype, if you ask me).
