Viva Films has released the official trailer for the upcoming sexy-thriller film The Housemaid, starring beauty queen-actress Kylie Verzosa.
The movie is a Philippine remake of the hit South Korean film of the same name, which competed for the Palme d'Or at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in 2010.
The Housemaid, based on its official synopsis, follows the story of Daisy, "a new maid to a wealthy family whose task is to watch over a young kid, but unknowingly she's being watched by the kid's father. When temptation kicks in, Daisy and the wealthy family's lives start to shatter in pieces."
Directed by Roman Perez, Jr., the film also stars Albert Martinez, Louise Delos Reyes, Alma Moreno, and Elia Eliano, with the special participation of Jaclyn Jose.

Previously, Kylie said she considers The Housemaid as one of her most challenging roles.
“Kasi iba talaga siya sa personality ko, medyo malayo talaga siya sa akin as Kylie. And iba siya sa mga role na nagagawa ko sa TV, sa movies, so my sense of parang kaba, may sense din ng excitement, may sense din ako ng saya, so 'yon,” she said.
She also admitted that she had second thoughts about accepting the project, considering that it's different from all the roles she's played in the past.
“Nung pinapanood sa akin yung film, siguro mga two to three days bago ko ito i-accept. Tapos pinanood ko ulit yung movie, tapos pinag-usapan namin kung anong mga restrictions or limitations na puwede kong ibigay para sa film," she said.
“Yo'n lang yung inayos namin but otherwise gusto ko kasi yung film dahil kakaiba siya," she added. "Hindi siya yung typical na leading lady na mabait. Very interesting siya para sa akin, very curious ako doon sa role."
The Housemaid will stream exclusively on Vivamax beginning September 10.
