In an exclusive interview with PUSH.com.ph after the premiere night of the horror film Resureksyon last Tuesday, September 22, actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith said that she was surprised by how the movie turned out on the big screen.
“I think more than anything, I was very surprised with how it was edited and how it was colored. Everything that just put it altogether. But I’m very proud about how Direk Borgy (Torre) decided to pursue the final product so I’m just happy that it’s out,” she said.
Revealing her favorite part in the movie, Jasmine said that it was the scene where her co-actors Nino Muhlach and Paulo Avelino are talking to the soldiers. “Kasi it was a mixed of you know, you would be scared, parang may kaba ka eh. Pero at the same time, matatawa ka dahil kay Nino so that was just a good balance of both na parang hindi mo alam kung natatawa ka dahil natatakot ka rin or natatawa ka kasi funny lang talaga ‘yung character ni Nino,” she explained.
Meanwhile, she revealed that the most challenging scenes for her were her underwater scenes with her sister in the movie, actress Isabelle Daza. “The water was freezing when we were shooting that. When we finally got out of the water, medyo pale na ‘yung katawan namin. Talagang nakalunok na kami ng maalat na tubig, it was very painful for our eyes as well. But all in all, it’s all worth it once you finally see it,” the actress said.
Jasmine, who did other thriller films like Halik sa Hangin, Dementia, and Puti, shared how different Resureksyon is from her past movies, “I think here kasi, you see that it’s centralizing on the family values and what you would decide to do in the end. Everything that I’ve done before have been about love or arts or mental illness, primarily. Here you see that we’re trying to focus on the family values.”
Resureksyon, produced by Regal Entertainment and Reality Entertainment, is currently showing in cinemas nationwide.
