The film was well-packaged from the satisfactory delivery of the cast to the technical aspects in sound, screenplay, editing, cinematography, costume design, production design, and directing. Admittedly not even near to what is near perfect for a multi-genre film as its story progressed--from horror to suspense to murder to psych and to drama--but still attention- and watch-worthy. Wishing more quality movies from the Philippines.

After watching this movie:
You'll get by.
