One Night Only - by Canary Films

Shake Rattle and Roll X - The Classic Trilogy horror film from the early 90’s (as far as I can remember). This movie offer from Regal Films, directed by Mike Tuvierra and Topel Lee is a trilogy of horrors in 3 parts and episodes. Dividing the horrors this Christmas story turned horror into 3 to give more fun and thrill in cost-effective way by rendering as good as 3 movies rolled in one. Stars include some of the brightest stars of Regal teeners like Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Erich Gonzales, Roxan Guinoo and more.WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

Magkaibigan - Under Maverick Films with last year’s best actor Jinngoy Estrada producing and starring in the movie. It is actually a movie tribute for a best friend who passed away, Rudy Fernandez this year.

Dayo ( a great animated movie you must see ) - Under Cutting Edge, this is the first animated movie accepted to take part in the MMFF 2008 series of awarding held each year and a history in the making. This animated movie is directed by Robert Quilao with Artemio Abad and Eric Cabahug. I am telling you this is something that Filipinos can be really really proud of because of the quite unique collaboration done here as you see one of the best if not the best animated movie ever done in the Philippines since Panday. The animation is indeed the best among what I have seen done in the Philippines and proudly Filipino. I personally salute this effort to render such quality so that investors for Philippine animation will see that it is possible with some of the best an animation artists in the world proven to have come from the Philippines and as seen in this movie.
