8 REVIEW | Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang

The official movie poster (from Google Images)
The two best assets of the film are (1) its cinematography; and (2) Erich Gonzales’ overall performance.

Erich is legit. I can’t picture anyone else who could play the role better, and I beg Lilia Cuntapay’s pardon for that. Erich has graduated into becoming a film actress who is very capable of giving other emerging big screen actresses a run for their money. For instance, Erich nails the birth scene in the film with a performance that only compelling actors can pull off. She knows how to keep a balanced delivery of expressions to grip her audience and make them stay.

On the other hand Derek Ramsay, whose performance is also laudable, is somewhat miscast as Corazon’s husband. Though the film does not suffer from a lack of chemistry between its leads, the creators could have been sharper to realize that Derek, who plays the role of a farmer, looks more like a landlord!

The film has a weak supporting cast but performance-wise, Tetchie Agbayani should not be ignored. She commendably plays the role of a crazy woman who is haunted by the ghosts of her past. Her character is so stirring, it is frustrating that the film fails to preserve the relevance of her story until the end.

Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang is not a horror movie to be watched by those who lust after the typical scare. The storytelling is not flawless and the horror is deficient. But the atmosphere created by its vibrant cinematography is so riveting, you will immediately feel the excitement of meeting the second aswang.

The film lacks substance but Erich does her best for the audience not to see that shortage.
