Movie Review: Ang Manananggal Sa Unit 23B

Jewel is a mysterious woman who lives alone in the city. She has a secret which has led her to settle into a lonely existence. That is, until she meets Nico, a broken-hearted, down-and-out guy who also feels unlovable like she does. Jewel is torn between wanting to love him and wanting to save him from herself. Will he accept her if he knew the truth about her? Can she ever find love, or is she destined to be alone forever?

Ang Manananggal Sa Unit 23B is a well made modern-day retelling of Manananggal story with touch of millennial and timely social issue. A stylish Gothic horror romantic film that you will like to see. Credits given to its cinematography, musical scoring and editing. Great chemistry between Martin Del Rosario and Ryza Cenon. Finally a good project for Ryza Cenon that showcase her acting prowess. As always good performance by Martin Del Rosario that never fails to impress and hilarious performance by Ms. Vangie Labalan. This is a kind of local film that is so refreshing that you will like to see the second time around.

My Verdict: 4/5
