The Killer Bride is a 2019 Philippine drama television series starring Joshua Garcia, Janella Salvador, Geoff Eigenmann, and Maja Salvador. The series premiered on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide on The Filipino Channel on August 12, 2019, replacing Sino ang Maysala?: Mea Culpa.

Plot[edit]

Las Espadas is a superstitious town that has been haunted by the ghost of The Killer Bride for years. Most of the residents have stories of encountering Camila dela Torre (Maja Salvador), the woman in 1999 who—right before her wedding day, "killed" and was found by her fiance in a matching bloody wedding dress and veil. In her murder trial, Camila begs to the court that she is wrongfully accused, but is eventually shunned by her own rich, prominent family and fiance Vito dela Cuesta (Geoff Eigenmann) who testifies against her. After giving birth to a beautiful baby girl in prison, a sudden freak fire encompasses the entire prison facility. Crying, desperate and unable to locate her newborn daughter, her last words exact revenge on every person who falsely accused her, all whilst her body burned in the flames.

Urban legend fuses into reality as eighteen years pass and a group of teenagers headed by Elias Sanchez (Joshua Garcia) again tell the story of Camila. Playfully, they claim that on the day of the blood moon eclipse, the ghost of Camila will possess a new body and finally kickstart Camila's vow for revenge. As if fulfilling the prophecy, a girl from nowhere, Emma Bonaobra (Janella Salvador) moves to the town. Securing a job as the town's mortuary cosmetologist, she is told of the tale of The Killer Bride but disbelieves it. Lo and behold, Emma wakes up near midnight, possessed by "The Killer Bride"/Camila herself to gatecrash her family's grand party event claiming that she is the long-dead Camila.

Once Emma's "possession" by Camila loses it's power, the dela Torre family and the entire town question her motives. Is Emma a scammer or are her claims of being possessed true? And what really happened during The Killer Bride/Camila's 1999 murder frame-up and supposed death? Is there a bigger, more haunting connection behind the rival dela Torre vs. dela Cuesta; two families entwined in rivalry for land and politics — or is this a tale of The Killer Bride destined to curse the town?
