A Canadian brother and sister return to their native Manila to attend the funeral of their wealthy grandmother and discover they've inherited her remote country estate. This Canadian-Filipino coproduction (2006) begins by cogently showing how each sibling has assimilated and how awkward both feel revisiting their homeland; the second half descends into supernatural hokum as they're terrorized by an assortment of demons on the estate. Writer-director-editor Romeo Candido creates some visually arresting images, but lack of cultural context stymies his attempts to fuse a contemporary narrative with Filipino folklore. In English and subtitled Tagalog. 111 min.
