After starring in Para sa Hopeless Romantic, actress Shy Carlos is set to star in the horror film Chain Mail.
Shy said that she feels excited but pressured as this is her first lead role. “Excited and pressured syempre ‘di ba kasi first lead role siya so sana magustuhan and sana maging maganda yung outcome,” she said.
Furthermore, Shy said that she realized it was hard to do a horror movie. “Well, kasi akala ko at first, sabi ko feeling ko pang-horror talaga ako, mga ganon ganong eksena. Pagdating ko sa set, hala ang hirap. Sobrang hirap, nakakapagod siya so sana yung paghihirap namin…” Nonetheless, she commended the director and the whole production team.
About Chain Mail, Shy said, “Alam niyo yung mga chain letters na pinapadala dati di ba sa e-mail? Mayroon kang seven days para isend siya, pag sinend mo, magiging lucky ka. Pag dinelete mo, mamamatay ka. So ‘yun, ganon siya. Dun tatakbo ‘yung story tapos hahanapin namin kung paano pwedeng masolve ‘yung curse.” According to her, the setting of this film will be around the years, 2004 to 2006.
Playing the role of a student whose best friend has died mysteriously, Shy said that her character is being haunted. “Kahit ‘yung character ko parang malilito na sino bang gumagawa nito, yung best friend ko ba or what?”
When asked if she experienced receiving chain mails in the past, Shy said yes, adding that it became a fad back then but ignores them.
Other celebrities who will star alongside Shy in this new horror film include Meg Imperial, Mark Bautista, Jackie Lou Blanco, John Regala, and AJ Muhlach among others.
