Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo admit doing a horror movie is more difficult than rom-coms


122713-kathniel_main.jpgAs one the lead stars of Pagpag, Daniel Padilla found out it was not as easy to do a horror movie as he first thought it would be. “Sobrang pisikal nung horror, talagang nakakapagod. Tapos kailangan effort eh, yung emosyon kailangan mataas eh. Hindi ka puwedeng manakot ng wala kang nararamdaman. Mahirap yung horror kasi nakakapagod sa emosyon, Nakakapagod sa katawan mo rin,” he admitted.

His leading lady Kathryn Bernardo, on the other hand, found the experience to be a good acting challenge. This is Kathryn’s second horror project in the Metro Manila Film Fest since she did Shake, Rattle and Roll 13 years ago. “Nakaka-excite gumawa ng horror talaga para sa akin. Pero feeling ko mas mahirap pa rin magpakilig kaysa sa manakot. Hindi ko sinasabing hindi mahirap gumawa ng horror kasi mahirap pa rin pero kasi pagod pagod yung katawan namin so parang drained na drained ka after tapos mawawalan ka ng boses sa kakasigaw,” she said.

DJ admitted that their movie will be enjoyable to watch for viewers of all ages. “Mag-e-enjoy yung lalake niyan (laughs). Nung napanuod ko yung isang death scene, natakot talaga ako,” he admitted.

The 18-year-old actor said he is not hoping to go up against other MMFF heavyweight entries, but just hopes their fans will be entertained. “Happy na ako na nakasama kami sa MMFF. Kung ano naman ang ibigay ng Diyos para sa amin, yun na yun. Basta makasali na kami masaya na ako. Basta alam ko ginawa naming lahat ng makakaya naming, talagang handa kami na pagandahin yung movie,” he admitted.

Kathryn said they worked doubly hard for the sake of their fans. “Ang hirap mag-explain. Parang hindi na kami nag-e-expect. Basta pinaghirapan namin ito sa ilang puyat at ilang pagod na binigay namin dito at sana ma-fill up siya sa cinema. Basta hindi na kami nag-e-expect kasi alam namin na madaming mas maganda sa amin na kasama. Basta panuorin na lang nila at sila na lang bahala magsabi kung maganda. Yung ginawang atake ni direk Frasco (Mortiz) dito hindi yung tulad ng ini-expect nila. Maraming klaseng death dito so tingnan nila kung saan sila mas matatakot,” she added.

Kathryn said that Pagpag was also an enjoyable experience for her because she got to work closely with DJ. “Oo naman, masaya naman. Especially ngayon kasama ko pa sila Ate Shaina (Magdayao) at Kuya Paulo (Avelino) at yung mga kaibigan ko andito so masaya yung team na ito. Basta feeling ko ang daming friendships dito sa Pagpag the movie,” she admitted.
