Movie Review: Bukod Kang Pinagpala

In an old house replete with images of Catholic icons and symbols, a young lady struggles with the demented religious fanaticism of her mother, who it seems cannot differentiate between pious fervour and demonic possession- for both exist simultaneously in her being.  The daughter seeks help for mother’s behavior, but as days go by, their relationship turns from harrowing to horrific, as strange phenomena occur inside the house, driving the daughter to evade and overcome her mother’s deranged machinations.

An unapologetic genre thrills that keep the film at most unrestrained with excellent sound that keep the atmosphere on high. What I like about the film is the chemistry between the real life mother and daughter Bing Pimentel and Max Eigenmann. The film's mystery and silence will bring you to the inner core of the story.

My Verdict:  3/5
