Erich and Derek play a childless husband and wife whose love for each other and spiritual and faith is put to test when tragedy strikes their first-born. “Nung sinabi sa ’kin ‘yung story nagulat ako! Kung baga, first time ko makkagawa ng project na out of the box! Na hindi yung normal lang or usual na horror movei!” Erich shares excitedly. “I play Corazon. Isa s’yang misteryosang babae. Tahimik, very spiritual. Simple lang. Mapuso at matindi magmahal. Lahat kaya n’yang isakripisyo para sa mga taong mahal n’ya.” She shares and adds, “Kuwento ito ng dalawang taong sinubok ‘yung pagmamamhalan nila and na-test din ‘yung faith nila, ‘yung love, ‘yung commitment nila sa isa’t-isa. ‘Yun for better or worse, mamahalin nila ang isa’t-isa no matter what. Unconditinal and unfailing love. ‘Yun ang isa sa nandito sa movie na ‘to. Makikita mo din ditto na life is a choice. Meron kang choice na mapabuti or mapasama. Kung saang landas mo gusting mapunta.” She closes.
Derek on the other hand has this to say, “Eversince I accepted the role, lagi ko ng sinasabi na this is my favorite project! Sobrang na-enjoy ko yung experience sa pag-shoot ng pelikulang ‘to. I look forward to shootings talaga.” He furthers, “This is very different kasi 50-50 s’ya! Most horror stories puro straight horror hanggang back story. Ito, it’s a horror story pero ang gand ng love story dito! It really shos what true love is all about. ‘Yun ang difference n’ya!” Derek is likewise very proud of his leading lady Erich, “She is one of the most talented young stars now! She can really act very very well! Very professional! Very versatile!” he closes.
First-time movie director and noted former Production Designer Richard Somes helms “Corazon…” he explains, “I wrote this story as the origin and the legend kun’ pa’no nagsimula ang aswang. But I’ve created my own legend! Ginawa ko syang parang sarili kong myth! It’s a story about undying love. ‘Yun ang theme.”. Direk Richard really has the pulse and eye for an affecting drama-love story horror movie and handpicking an effective lead cast was equally easy. “Erich is so beautiful on screen..” having worked with her in the hit teleserye “Maria La Del Barrio”, “…ang aura n’ya Filipina and medyo may pagka-enigmatic! Raw din s’ya, meaning ang emotion realistic lahat hindi staged, hindi planado. Grabe din ang pagka-vulnerable n’ya at the same time yun strength n’ya as an actress!” he proudly says of Erich. “With Dereke naman, yun aura malakas! Kung ikaw ang babae iisipin mo agad pwede ka nyang protektahan.
Again ang acting n’ya is super raw and napaka-intelihenteng tao so capture n’ya agad yung essence ng role n’ya!” he adds.
