Based on a 2016 Indian film of the same title, “U-Turn” is a mystery-thriller starring Kim Chiu, Tony Labrusca, and JM de Guzman.

"Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay"
Top-billed by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, “Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay” follows the story of a group of teenagers who ignored the Filipino superstition of not going home right after visiting a wake. In consequence, they end up being hunted down by the vindictive spirit of a dead man. The big question is: will they be able to survive?
“Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay” was an official entry to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival.
Here’s one for the scary school story enthusiasts. Set in the confines of a fictional all-girls Catholic school, “Eerie” follows the tale of a compassionate guidance counselor played by Bea Alonzo who tries to get to the bottom of her students’ ghostly suspicions. Her investigation of the supernatural leads to a major discovery about the school headmaster, which is played by Charo Santos.
