Last night I watch the Seklusyon Celebrity Premiere held at the SM Megamall Cinema 10. The premiere is the launch of the partnership of HOOQ and the 42nd Metro Manila Film Festival in the country.
Seklusyon was the chosen movie for the HOOQ partnership with the 42nd MMFF as the movie was produced by Reality Entertainment who produced the original series OTJ:The Series which will be showing on HOOQ starting next year.
Having been the home of the largest collection of Pinoy movies and TV series spanning for almost five decades it was a fitting choice for HOOQ to be a partner of the festival. It was also fitting to showcase one of the most one-of-a-kind film entry for the festival. Seklusyon is the only horror-thriller movie entry for the festival and it has garnered a number of positive reviews since its international premiere at the recent Macau International Film Festival.
“We started HOOQ HANGOUTS a few months ago to provide a forum to showcase the vast library of HOOQ, particularly our local content which spans almost five decades. That is why we are ending the year with this HOOQ HANGOUTS featuring an exclusive screening of Seklusyon, produced by Reality Entertainment, which incidentally is also our partner in creating OTJ: The Series,” says Jane Cruz-Walker, HOOQ Philippines Country Manager.
Personally, I love the storytelling of Seklusyon , the editing was good, the actors and actresses were good, especially the girl who portrays Angela. It lacked the shock value I was looking for though.
The movie stars Ronnie Alonte Neil Ryan Sese, Lou Veloso, Rhed Bustamante, Phoebe Walker, Elora Espano, Dominique Roque, John Vic De Guzman and JR Versales. Set in the 1940s, the movie follows a young deacon (Alonte) who hides from the devil in a sacred sanctuary seven days before he is ordained as a priest.
HOOQ is the home of the largest collection of Pinoy movies and TV series spanning almost five decades, including close to a hundred winners and finalists of the Metro Manila Film Festival such as “Baler”, “Tanging Yaman”, “Mulawin the Movie, “Muro-Ami” and many more.
HOOQ continues its collaboration with the Metro Manila Film Festival, major local studios, as well as a slew of independent film-makers in order to bring more of the MMFF entries onboard HOOQ. MMFF entries from recent years, such as Regal Entertainment’s “Haunted Mansion”, ABS-CBN’s “Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay” and “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy” were made available on HOOQ.
HOOQ, a start-up venture between Singtel, Sony Pictures Television and Warner Bros., is an award-winning service that empowers customers with unlimited online streaming access and an offline viewing option to top Hollywood and Filipino movies and television content, on any device including computers, smartphones tablets, smart TVs via Google Chromecast and now also on Airplay and mobile web.
