Achieving Jodi Sta. Maria’s possessed look in her newest film Clarita is no easy feat, as proven in a hilarious, horror-themed “makeup tutorial” she released via a vlog entry on Sunday.
In the series titled “Clarita Chic”, the 37-year-old actress, together with Alyssa Muhlach, shared a step-by-step guide on how she was made to appear possessed in the movie as the titular character using only cosmetics. Jodi, all the while exchanging witty remarks with her co-star, was assisted by Rem, one of the members of the prosthetic’s team, who detailed the three different stages of Clarita’s “sapi” appearance for their viewers.
The vlog comes after film studio Black Sheep announced that the horror flick has earned over P22 million in the box office four days since it hit cinemas last June 12.
A film by Derick Cabrido, Clarita tells the story of Clarity Villanueva, whose possession gripped the Philippines in the 1950s and tests the faith of Fathers Salvador (Ricky Davao) and Benedicto (Arron Villaflor) when they are tasked to perform an exorcism on her after learning that a group of doctors was killed by supernatural forces.
Aside from Jodi, Alyssa, Ricky, and Arron, the film stars Nonie Buencamino, Romnic Sarmienta, Angeli Bayani, and Che Ramos.
