MMFF Showdown - Shake Rattle & Roll 13

Shake, Rattle, & Roll 13 is touted as the final installment of the long-running horror franchise.

Rain, Rain Go Away episode

Director Chris Martinez describes the first episode as being “the fear ng bawat Filipino. ‘Di ba takot na takot tayo sa baha, sa sakuna, sa disaster? Parang everytime na uulan, o may malakas na bagyo, lahat tayo napapraning kasi baka mamatay ang mga tao, malunod.

“It’s a revenge story; it’s about guilt. Hindi mo matatakasan ang kasalanan mo.”

This is Direk Chris’s first foray into directing a horror film and he is very happy to have this experience. “E, siyempre, Diyos ko ‘no, I grew up watching Shake, Rattle & Roll. Dream ko na makagawa ng isang Shake, Rattle & Roll episode kahit man lang isang beses.”

Tamawo episode

The Tamawo episode is the come backing film of Richard Somes who returns to SRR after six years of absence.

"Actually, ang tamawo is very much close din sa maligno,” he explains. “Tamawo is an Ilonggo word."

The episode is all about a man named Alan who brings his wife and stepson to a provincial ranch. The ranch was previously looked after by his uncle whose death remained mysterious. It’s there where the family experiences various encounters with supernatural creatures.

Direk Richard also injects a serious message in his film: “Actually ‘yong theme ko ng Tamawo is ‘yong tayo as human beings, kaya nating mang-invade ng territory na kung minsan, e, hindi na sa atin.

“Hindi natin nirerespeto ang boundaries. Napaka-greedy talaga ng tao. So, ang ganda ng lesson.”

Parola episode

The Parola episode is Director Jerrold Tarog second directorial stint with the SRR franchise. The filmmaker admits that this film came all along after making Aswang, starring Lovi Poe and Paulo Avelino.

“It’s pretty tiring,” Direk Jerrold bluntly admits. “But the good thing is that Parola is a totally different concept from Aswang, which makes visualizing the project easy.”

The director is very happy to be included in this year’s entry to the film festival. “The other episodes are going to be helmed by two directors whom I have great respect for. I’m not so much pressured as I am in awe.

“With [Chris] Martinez and [Richard] Somes in the line-up, I’m prepared to lie low in this installment. Those two are awesome. I look forward to seeing their episodes.”

Written by Gerry Ignacio, the film stars Eugene Domingo, in her first attempt to do a horror flick, Jay Manalo, Edgar Allan Guzman, Boots Anson Roa, Zanjoe Marudo, Maricar Reyes, Bugoy CariƱo, Celia Rodriguez and introducing Ervic Vijandre, Kathryn Bernardo, Louise de los Reyes, Sam Concepcion, Hiro Magalona, Dimples Romana, Ina Raymundo, and Ara Mina.
