Cinematography:I could understand that the cinematography was small scaled due to the fact that this movies was low budget, but what was done with the budget was impressive, mike de leon was the cinematographer for Maynila so I could see some similarities
Acting:Vic Salayan’s performance as Dadong demands fear every time he’s on screen, and even when he’s not, of course the supporting cast also does great jobs.
Directing:Mike De Leon’s aesthetic is unique but I could also see some influences from Hitchcock and others, the Directing does it’s job in building tension
Screenplay:Cleverly built around Nick Joaquin’s Story and builds a big rubber band next to bombs of tension
Score:The score fits the movie really well
Blocking:The Blocking of the realistic house and movements of actors is perfectly timed and does good for each frame
Ending:Watch it for yourself
