Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The idea of a sequel was created after Coco Martin approached director Chito Roño and Kris Aquino about the first film. Being a fan of the original movie in 2004, Martin asked Aquino and Roño if they would be interested in a sequel, and said that he would be glad to join them. Roño and Aquino decided that after ten years, it was the right time for the sequel.

The shooting of the film was set to commence by late August 2014. With the first cut of the film, Joy's character (Kris Aquino) was not present for most of the story. Because of this, the producers asked for re-shoots, to give her additional screen time.

The first official trailer of the film was attached to the Star Cinema romantic comedy film Past Tense, which was released on November 22, 2014.[4]

Reception[edit]

The film was met with high expectations by fans since the first movie had been a cult classic, considered the 'scariest Filipino horror film ever'.

The film received a mixed to positive response from critics, who cited the outstanding performances of Coco Martin and Cherry Pie Picache but said the film lacked the originality of the first movie. They also applauded Kris Aquino's performance, saying it was a great improvement from her past horror films.

Audiences received the film more positively, citing it as a worthy sequel.

Box office[edit]

The film became the second-highest-grossing film at the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival. It now holds the title of having the highest opening gross of any Filipino horror film of all time, having earned a total of ₱235.0 million at the box office.[5]
