WATCH: 'U-Turn' is Pinoy horror at its finest

Kim: "It's different kasi meron siyang touch ng Pinoy horror, so kung natakot sila doon [sa Indian movie], mas matatakot sila dito."

We know you're just as excited as we are for the October 30 premiere of the upcoming horror flick "U-Turn," and today, we are giving all the details you need!

Straight from the set of the Derick Cabrido film, Kim Chiu, JM De Guzman, and Tony Labrusca gave us a little overview of their characters, as well as how they prepared for their roles in the horror movie.

Direk Derick also talked about the adjustments he did to make sure that the Pinoy adaptation of the Indian movie will be suitable for Filipino audiences.

"Alam na ng viewers ang takbo ng storya, so you have to add something new to the story," he said.

"When we were writing the storyline and the treatment, I do remember that we have to revise several times just to make sure na sumasakto sa Philippine culture 'yung takbo ng storya kasi coming from an Indian movie ang 'U-Turn,' so medyo iba 'yung aesthetics."

He continued, "Iba ang culture, iba ang style, iba 'yung approach that we have to bend some of those para maiintindihan at mas ma-aappreciate ng isang Filipino kapag pinanood nila."

Kim also assured viewers that the Pinoy adaptation will be more terrifying than the Indian film.

"Napanood ko kasi 'yung nasa Indian movie. And then this one, it's different kasi meron siyang touch ng Pinoy horror so kung natakot sila doon, mas matatakot sila dito. Kasi dito, ang dami naming in-apply na elements of scare," she said.
