Villa Estrella is a 2009 Philippine horror film produced by Star Cinema for its 16th anniversary offering, It stars Maja Salvador, Jake Cuenca, Geoff Eigenmann and Shaina Magdayao in the lead role, and is directed by Rico Maria Ilarde.[1]


How come people who go there are never seen again? Does the villa "eat" people alive?

The movie tells the story of Anna (Shaina Magdayao)[2] who has always been having nightmares about certain people getting killed. Things become scarier when her ex-boyfriend (Jake Cuenca) brings her to Villa Estrella where she meets a girl named Gisele (Maja Salvador)[3] who seems to be very familiar to her[citation needed]



Villa Estrella had a lack of promotion from both Star Cinema and ABS-CBN, having no movie premiere night due to the lead actors Shaina Magdayao, Jake Cuenca and Maja Salvador being in the United States for the Star Magic World Concert Tour from June 26–28 at Ontario and San Francisco, California.[citation needed] Making it nearly impossible for them to fly back to Manila in time to have their movie premiere night.[4]
