Movie Review: Hellcome Home

Hellcome Home tells the story of two families: the Domingo-- husband and wife Nandy (Raymond) and Cynthia (Beauty) with kids Fred, Mia and Pia, portrayed by Teejay Marquez, Gillian Vicencio, and Miel Espinoza, respectively and the Villareals -- husband and wife Peter (Dennis) and Marcy (Alyssa) with kids Sky (Nhikzy Calma) and Baby Starr.

The Domingos and the Villareals both want the same thing: to have a peaceful home away from all the outside noise. However, it seems they cannot escape their inner chaos.

Upon settling in, their dream home becomes a nightmare from hell as things happen--sound and whispers too uncanny to ignore, strange shadows lurking at every corner, and trespassers bearing offerings. Both families experience horrifying phenomena that are eeriely parallel.

Perhaps the house is evil itself, hungry for souls and wants to feed, once every few years. Who can save them from the house? Or is there no escape when hell has come home?

Hellcome Home is one heck frightening, hilarious, delightfully campy thrill ride. It is playful and atmospheric horror film with a lot of jump scare. The film will play with your mind and keep you interested as the story unfolds. Kudos for the cast for being game and accepting this crazy psychological thriller film that test their strength and capabilities as an actors. Each of the characters from Dennis Trillo, Gillian Vicencio, Teejay Marquez, Miel Espinoza, Raymond Bagatsing up to Alyssa Muhlach and Beauty Gonzales  jive well and justified their characters that has own inner layer stories and demon to fight to. The story is good and on how it was tell in nonlinear is awesome. A lot of twist and surprise awaits that you’ll never expect coming. It's subtle message was delivered clearly and creatively. Hellcome Home is such a different flavor of pinoy horror film that deserved to be watched.

 My Verdict: 4/5
