Riding on the success of Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) hit “Fan Girl,” Globe Studios is releasing another provocative must-see motion picture.
Beginning January 29, UPSTREAM is streaming “Midnight In a Perfect World,” a horror movie starring Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Glaiza de Castro. The film is produced by Globe Studios and Epicmedia Productions — the same team that made the box-office hit “Fan Girl”, which won eight major awards at the 2020 MMFF.
True to its vision of being the home of films that “come from authentic voices and are crafted by true creators,” “Midnight In A Perfect World” features a strong cast, a mind-bending story, and visceral visuals. The horror film was included in multiple “top 2020 films” lists, including CNN Philippines, Rappler, and cinemaescapist.com.
Set in a dystopian future Metro Manila, the story delves into the mysterious disappearances that occur during nightly blackouts.
Jasmine and Glaiza, with Anthony Falcon and Dino Pastrano, play a group of friends who are skeptical about the goings-on, but suddenly get caught in a blackout and must now find a safe house to survive.
The talented cast also includes Bing Pimentel, Soliman Cruz, Dolly de Leon, Charles Aaron Salazar and Brian Sy.
The film is written and directed by Dodo Dayao, the filmmaker behind the Cinema One Original “Violator”, internationally acclaimed by publications Twitch and Variety.
“When it was presented to us, it was pitched as an allegory of martial law. Little did we know that by the time it was released, it would also serve as a reflection of these dark times,” says Globe Studios’ head Quark Henares on why the production company was drawn to do the horror flick.
Dodo got the idea for “Midnight In A Perfect World” from an actual dream he had that he combined with personal memories of growing up during the last years of martial law. “It may be a martial allegory but it is also a haunted house story,” declares the writer/director.
“The house, our house is still haunted. The ghosts are all very much here,” he adds.
“Midnight In a Perfect World” had its world premiere at the QCinema International Film Festival, where it was the festival’s highest grossing film.
Watch it as it streams worldwide through UPSTREAM.ph from January 29 to February 29, 2021.
