Ghost-o kita: 4 not-so-horrifically lovable ghosts in Star Cinema movies

Ghost Month is fast approaching (tomorrow, August 11, to be exact), and what better way to commemorate a slightly scary season by giving it a decidedly on-brand romantic twist? 

Some ghosts you’re meant to be terrified of, some of them you’re better off forgetting, but the four movie characters on this list proved that just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some love. 

1. Ruth in “Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara”

Okay, yes, “Patayin” isn’t exactly what you would call a romantic movie by nature but it is a story about love and loss. It introduced us to the vengeful, spoiled, and beautifully complex Ruth played by Dawn Zulueta, who redefined the phrase “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” by coming back from the dead to haunt her older sister, whom she believed had an affair with her husband. Iconic.

2. Gio in “Halik Sa Hangin” 

Gerald Anderson’s Gio might be a ghost but he’s literally every guy you’ve ever dated: really hot, kinda sweet, kinda dangerous, and definitely bad for your well-being. Gio has a really dark side, what with him being dead and all but ultimately, he’s just misunderstood and love-starved, which is pretty relatable because...aren’t we all?

3. Joven in “Nasaan Ka Man” 

This movie is meeessed uuuup, for the lack of a better term. However, at its core, this psychological horror movie is about how far people will go for love and the resulting grief that comes from these extreme actions. Joven, played here by an outstanding Jericho Rosales, embodies this theme. Love had his physical body dead in a ditch, and his spirit unable to move on. But hey, that’s love for you.

4. Carmina/Jennifer in "Last Night" 

“Last Night” is the only non-horror movie in this list, and it gave us the very beautiful, flighty, and kind Carmina, played by Toni Gonzaga, who is a literal angel of death. She met Piolo Pascual’s Mark during his suicide attempt, which is kind of grim, but this movie delights in finding light in its darkest moments. And that light mostly emanates from Carmina, who doesn’t let her ghost status rain on her parade.
