In time for the Halloween season, the Kapamilya Network will air a TV special that aims to send chills through out audience viewers. Thrillecine, which marks ABS-CBN’s first foray into the thriller-suspense genre, will be aired this Sunday, November 2, on Sunday’s Best.
This TV event will feature two thriller-suspense movies-made-for-TV: “Sikreto ni Secret Admirer,” which stars Roxanne Guinoo, and Zanjoe Marudo, and “Karera sa Promotion,” which has Gerald Anderson, Maui Taylor and Bembol Roco in the lead roles.
“Ang Sikreto ni Secret Admirer” tells the story of Tikboy (Zanjoe), an ugly, shy, but kind-hearted mailman who is in love with the beautiful Helen (Roxanne), who is nursing a broken heart. Because of his undesirable appearance, he decided just to stalk Helen. He then finds Helen falling in love with a secret admirer-letter sender. Tikboy then decided to assume this person’s identity, who will not let his lady love fall for Tikboy because of his love letters. How will Tikboy stand up for his lies? How far will he go to protect the lies he has given?
“Karera sa Promotion,” meanwhile, follows the journey of Perez (Gerald), an honest cop who believes that getting a promotion will help him influence fellow cops to lead moral, honest lives. He then gave his all in finding the mysteries behind a series of murder incidents, but will the haunting truth leave him unscarred? Will he survive this scary ordeal?
Thrillecine, directed by young, talented director Ato Bautista and written by Shugo Praico, fuses sensuality and dark humor with the suspense-thriller genre.
Be sure to catch the pilot of Thrillecine this Sunday, November 2, on Sunday’s Best.
