Disquieting Horror : The Sinister Filipino Cinema of Yam Laranis or Films to be on the lookout for on Netflix, Tubi, Amazon!

International Poster for SigawTHE ECHO/SIGAW (2004)– Great cinematography, strong acting and script, and a very subtle horror.-IMDB

This one is available to Amazon Prime members.

 

ECHO(2008) – The Director remakes his 2004 film for US Audiences. Generally regarded as a good remake.

This one is streaming if you have SHUDDER. Or just pick up the DVD for a few dollars.

 

The Road (2011)THE ROAD(2011) – The trailer for this film was my introduction to the films of Yam Laranis. The trailer was then, and remains now one of the most genuinely creepy trailers I have seen. The movie unfortunately fails to live up to the trailer, is overlong and meanders to a conclusion, but that trailer. WoW!

Arguably his most well known film, this one is not available on streaming. But there is a DVD available here!

 

ABOMINATION (2018) – Which I, and seemingly very few people have seen, is getting good reviews from the few out there. an eerie mystery thriller that i’m looking forward to checking out.

This one is available to view for AMAZON PRIME members.

 

Anne Curtis in Aurora (2018)AURORA (2018) – Laranis’  2nd film of 2018, is in my least favorite genre, the zombie flick, but from the trailer… does it with a unique eeriness more akin to THE ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE. Another one on my watch list.

This one is available on NETFLIX.

 

With each film Yam Laranis becomes an ever more effective storyteller, with a new film in production for a 2020 release.
