Ryza Cenon goes sexy as a "manananggal"


GMA Artist Center stars Martin del Rosario and Ryza Cenon has been grateful for the remarkable characters entrusted to them in one of the entries in this year's QCinema International Film Festival, entitled "Ang Manananggal Sa Unit 23B."


The story involves Jewel (Cenon) and Nico (del Rosario), two lonely hearts who suffer from their own insecurities who will eventually find love in their own pool of sadness. 

Ryza was very impressive duiring the scenes where her urges to look for a victim is heightened. I commend her nuances and fearless execution of the sexy scenes. I would say that she made the right choice in doing the film even if it required her to be very sexy. 

Martin's restrained acting is effective as well which makes his character exciting as there's a part of me that wanted to get to know him better. Maybe in the sequel, perhaps.



Considering that this is somewhat a horror film, one of the things I really look at is its  art and production design and behold, I must say that it is refined. A must watch is Jewel's transformation to "manananggal"  - one of the best I've seen so far.


Something that also caught my attention was its sound design and the background music. It was on point and I would recommend that they come up with a soundtrack album.

While the film's showing today is limited to the festival's run, I think it's best if they'll have this shown on a regular run in time for the Halloween.
