Currently promoting the online premiere of her latest horror film U-Turn, Kim Chiu said the film is the scariest one she has done in her career to date. “Iba ito. Nakakatakot ito sure na (laughs). Kahit ako nung nag-du-dubbing kami ni direk (Derick Cabrido), sabi ko, ‘Sakit na ng heart ko. Labas muna tayo.’ Parang kahit ako hindi ko kayang panuorin. Matakutin kasi ako. So iba ang dating nitong pelikulang ito. Iba ito,” she shared during the U-Turn virtual presscon last October 7.

Now dubbed as the new “Millennial Horror Queen,” Kim said she has a long way to go before reaching the horror queen status of Kris Aquino. “Si Ate Kris will always be the ultimate horror queen bilang ang dami na niyang ginawang horror movies and kung may mga mayor sa kanya kanyang distrito, ganun na lang yung tingnan natin. So madami kami.  Siya talaga mag-isa at walang makakagalaw nun. Meron lang akong millennial (laughs). Meron lang dinagdag na word na millennial (laughs). Sa ibang barangay ako. Pero lahat yun queen so pantay pantay. Pero malayo na siya, mas malawak na ang lugar niya,” she explained.


Playing the role of an ambitious journalist named Donna Suarez in the film, Kim said the film will offer more than just the usual scares found in a Pinoy horror film. “Nakaka-enganyo sa mga horror movies yung puzzle, yung bubuohin mo yung puzzle kung bakit naging ganun. Kasi normal tao to not normal tao, ibang elemento yung tina-touch natin dito. Kung papaano yung normal at yung element nagkita. Kasi pag nanunuod ka nung movie hindi lang puro gulat, takot, nandun din yung bakit ganyan, bakit ganun. Yung mga maraming bakit. Kasi alam naman natin na yung ibang spirito na naglalakad lakad sa paligid natin iba hindi pa sila fully masaya kung bakit sila namatay. May reason and may reason din kung bakit yung taong yun yung pinuntahan,” she explains.
