Halloween Screamfest with “Spirit of the Glass 2: The Haunted”
Never toy with the unknown because it might just come back to haunt you. This is the lesson from “Spirit of the Glass 2: The Haunted,” the latest horror movie set to hit Filipino theaters in time for Halloween.
Three fashionista friends who are popular on social media attempt to have some offline fun by trying to contact spirits using the age-old Spirit of the Glass game and this opens up to a series of horrific haunting experiences.
Bea is a lifestyle editor of a popular magazine, Lisette is an up-and-coming young actress, and Chelsea is a sought-after model. They are the Girls of the Moment, living blissful lives basking in their popularity. One night, together with their love interests, Enzo, Jag, and Andre summon a trio of vengeful spirits with Bea’s Ouija Board, and this triggers a succession of disturbing supernatural events in relation to a crime committed 50 years ago. The spirits haunt the girls and their partners until they are forced to connect with a blind medium named Anita to help the spirits seek justice and eternal peace.
The movie is written by Jose Javier Reyes as a nod to the first Spirit of the Glass movie which he also directed. The first movie came out in 1994 with an ensemble cast including Rica Peralejo, Marvin Agustin, Drew Arellano, Paolo Contis, Alessandra de Rossi and Dingdong Dantes.
