THE MISSING

The Missing (MMFF 2020)

Directed by: Easy Ferrer


An architect was requested to redesign a 100-year old house which turns out to be haunted.


There’s a huge potential for this movie to be scary through its eerie visuals, interesting twist and good actors. But they were engrossed in providing cheap thrills, leaving the whole movie paper-thin.


Hindi nila kayang manakot habang may binubuo silang istorya. Lalabas nang paulit-ulit ang mga multo, at wala kang malalaman na bagong impormasyon. Pagdating sa bandang dulo, itatapon na lang sayo nang isang bagsakin lahat ng kailangan mong malaman para magkaroon ng saysay ang lahat ng kanilang pananakot.


Napadaan lang ang istorya, at hindi na pinagtuunan ng pansin. Hindi naging maayos ang kanilang paglalakbay. Hindi mo kayang sundan ang mga eksena, dahil wala namang nangyayari. Hindi mo kayang intindihan ang mga karakter, dahil halos wala naman silang ginagawa.


The characters can get irritating due to their problematic actions. Most of the time, they were just walking around the house for no reason. They end up in some areas, and you don’t know why they are there in the first place. They keep running around in circles.


Walang landas ang pelikulang ito kung kaya’t hindi naging maganda ang takbo ng istorya. Puro sila pananakot. Ngunit mas nakakatakot ang kawalan nila ng direksyon.


What’s Missing in this movie is a proper direction to put all the promising elements into its rightful places and not into waste.
