Dalaw (English: Visit) or Dalaw: First Time sa TV (on its first TV premiere on February 8, 2012) is a 2010 Filipino suspense-horror film starring Kris Aquino and Diether Ocampo.[1] The film was released by Star Cinema. It was an official entry at the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival.


Stella (Kris Aquino) decides to marry Anton (Diether Ocampo), 3 years after her husband died. Anton was her great love before she was forced by her parents to marry Danilo (Richard Quan). However, after the wedding, she experiences major hauntings that endanger her life and the people around her. All the clues are pointing to her dead husband. Feeling guilty of her dead husband's death, Stella tries to save her family from the ghost's wrath. Along the way, secrets start to unravel and Stella is now unsure of who's haunting her and why she's being haunted.
