Pedring Lopez’s Award-Winning Action Horror, NILALANG, Presents A Chilling New International Trailer


It’s not everyday that you hear about Filipino action movies, and primarily because not a lot of them are produced locally. It doesn’t change the fact that there are directors and other film professionals who are in the market to make films like these happen…people like Pedring Lopez in the wake of his latest action horror, Nilalang (The Entity).

The film garnered several awards for its Metro Manila Film Festival premiere last December parallel with its theatrical release, which mysteriously decreased in the number of screens for reasons undisclosed. Thankfully that hasn’t stopped the film from garnering its much-deserved attention with prominent locals, actor Cesar Montano and actress Meg Imperial lining up the A-list talent next to former adult entertainer-turned-actress Maria Ozawa as she looks to reach a career milestone with her first serious role.

For all intents and purposes, efforts across the board have been a success and the film is still primed for more festival screenings following its premiere this Friday evening at the Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival. As such, Lopez is gracing moviegoers with a brand new international trailer to showcase some of the film’s stellar offerings, equipped with all the necessary laurels, and a humble quote from a review I’ve written apart from my own shared platform here at The Action Elite.

NBI special crimes division agent Tony (Cesar Montano) encounters an evil entity which is bent on killing and torturing beautiful women, one of which was his girlfriend, years after he have thought to have killed the malevolent spirit. People close to Tony is in danger including his partner Jane (Meg Imperial), who has romantic interest towards him with everyone in the agency aware of this fact except for Tony.

The spirit, who has killed many people in Japan, is thought to be targeting women from a certain clan of samurai. In Manila, Miyuki (Maria Ozawa) takes care of the family business while her younger sister is taking care of their aging father. Miyuki is later forced to help in the investigation regarding the murders after Akane went missing and their father was found dead to put of stop to the evil entity’s killing spree.

There’s more news to come for Nilalang following its Los Angeles International Film Fest premiere with the film now primed for screenings in Argentina, the U.K., New York City, Spain and more. Watch the international trailer below and keep this one on your movie map from now through 2017.
