OVERVIEW and SUMMARY of Sukob
Running Time: 105 mins.
Director: Chito Rono
Producer: Charo Santos Concio
Sandy (Kris Aquino) and Dale (Wendell Ramos) are overseas workers who went back to the Philippines to get married. Most of the people in their hometown, specially their parents are so keen not to break all the superstitious beliefs about getting married. Don’t do this and Don’t do that…… ever since they arrived.
A day before they were married, Sandy found out what happened to her neighbor Helen who died and Helen’s husband before that. It is said,Helen broke one of the superstition because she got married within a year her father died.
Now, it is Sandy’s turn to panic…. because there were signs already that her wedding was one with a curse.
There are two stories actually in the movie. Two women getting married. One living in a province…… and one about Sandy.
Sukob is basically a story about superstitions believed by the locals about getting married.
Unlike other Pinoy horror films…. Sukob succeeded as a horror-film. It is actually well-done, that is - if you compare it to other Pinoy-horror films. I like how the two stories of the women getting married was placed sequentially.
The ending was a bit hanging, like most horror films… and it is soo unlike a Pinoy to have those kind of endings…
I like how Claudine and Kris acted. Magaling!
