Pwera Usog (2017) Film Trailer Review
What can be said about Pwera Usog (2017) official movie trailer? Well, first up the trailer for the film looks crisp which is not really that big of an accomplishment (and deal) as this film is backed up by a major Filipino film company (Regal Entertainment). Whether the film will have a good cinematography is yet to be seen. Pwera Usog is another horror film that uses a Filipino superstitious belief as its theme just like its predecessors; earlier Filipino horror films like Sukob, Pagpag, and Bulong. It is really odd to use the superstitious concept of "usog" as a film's main focus for a horror film but Regal somehow made that possible. They probably might weave "usog" into the story but I don't know if we should commend them for creativity or loathe them for laziness.
Pwera Usog at a glance seems to be a conveyor belt film which I can't even categorize as a passable film. It seems to be one of those debut films for Regal's up and coming stars; a small investment for a company like Regal. If you think about it, this is probably why they use "usog" as its main theme or title and uses some Filipino showbiz newcomers that the rest of the cost probably went to the two veteran actress in the film, Aiko and Eula. Well, I am a big horror fan and almost seen most of them, but when I watched the trailer for this film all it solicit was some chuckle and face palm. You have a set of unlikeable millennials doing some stupid things (like what most of them do nowadays) and the film somehow expects us to sympathize with them on their journey o solving the problem they set in motion in the first place. The Pwera Usog trailer makes the film looks forgettable and laughable, but that's just me. You probably might be a fan of these new stars and be much more forgiving in this mediocre trailer for a mediocre film.
