The new Jodi Sta. Maria-starrer “Clarita” produced by ABS-CBN Films, Black Sheep is one of the most intriguing upcoming horror movies today, and we’re not going to pretend we don’t know why. Who doesn’t love a good demonic possession movie inspired by real events, right?
Its first trailer was released two weeks ago on Black Sheep’s Youtube channel and we haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. We’ve got thoughts, we’ve got theories, and we’ve been studying this trailer frame by frame to overthink every single detail in it. So if you’re interested in not being able to get a good night’s sleep thinking may katabi ka na hindi tao, then you’re in the right place.
Below are five missable details from the new “Clarita” trailer you absolutely need to know more about.
1 Who is Clarita?
“Clarita” is based on the case of Clarita Villanueva, a young Filipina woman who was suspected of being a victim of demonic possession in 1953. Accounts vary but one detail seemed to thread among all of them: after she was imprisoned, she claimed that she was being tormented by two entities who would attack her with their teeth. She had bite marks all over her body.
2. The power of words
Clarita seems to be able to kill someone with a curse. After repeatedly telling what appeared to be a medical examiner “mamamatay ka”, we see a man wearing the exact same white coat drop dead in his office.
3. A new level of self-destruction
At the beginning of this trailer, Clarita is in her prime, young, long-haired, and beautiful. In the end, we see the obvious strains of possession taking its toll on her body. The dark bags under her eyes suggest this woman hasn’t had a good night’s rest in forever. The stains on her teeth also give us a clue on the accelerated decay Clarita’s body is experiencing.
Jodi also sported jacked up nails throughout this whole trailer, which doesn’t come as a surprise because whatever it is that’s possessing her character seemed to have an affinity for scratching pretty much anything in sight. Walls, furniture, human flesh, whatever surface that is available to provide maximum creepiness fell victim.
We know what you’re thinking: this is really terrifying and also, yeah, someone needs a manicure.
4. That symbol on the wall? What could it be?
At first, you might not think anything of this frame. It flies by so fast so it’s pretty missable, but it appears as though Clarita is drawing a symbol with her own blood. If that doesn’t make you want to start throwing up, this will: a quick google search will make you realize that it bears striking resemblance to a demonic symbol. And. Yup, tumataas na balahibo namin.
And she smiles while she’s doing it too! This movie is gonna be a nightmare on your sleeping schedule.
5. Wait...is that a dead body?
Around the middle point of this creepy, creepy trailer, we get a peek into what really lies ahead for audiences when this movie hits cinemas: a Jodi who can bend over backwards and walk on all fours. There also appears to be a man lying dead on the floor, and a man who appears to be Ricky Davao’s character is also on his back.
