“Birdshot” director and son of alternative cinema pioneer Raymond Red, Mikhail Red is partnering with Star Cinema and venturing into the world of the unknown for his most recent foray into filmmaking.

Red’s second film entitled “Eerie” is a horror-mystery thriller starring established actors such as Bea Alonzo, Charo Santos-Concio, Jake Cuenca, and Maxene Magalona. It is a long-time project of Red, and it has actually already won an award at the 21st Buncheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN) in South Korea January of last year.

According to the film festival’s website, Eerie tells the story of Pat (Bea Alonzo), a guidance counselor working in a conservative all-girls Catholic high school in 1999 Manila. Pat is also secretly clairvoyant and has been holding midnight therapy sessions for the ghost of Eri, a student who committed suicide within school grounds. One day, a murdered student is found in the campus. A male investigator (Jake Cuenca) enlists the help of Pat to find the murderer. With a lack of living witnesses, Pat turns to the “watcher of the school”—Eri. (Get it? It’s Eerie because it’s Eri? No? Okay.)

You wouldn’t get any of these at the released trailer (because it doesn’t give away the whole story, for once), but you will certainly get some chills.

With an award-winning and much-acclaimed film such as Birdshot in his resume, which is also the first Filipino film to earn a spot in Netflix, the expectations for Red’s Eerie are set high. But, then again, the genre of horror is a whole different ball game compared to other film genres. Fingers crossed Red pulls it off.
