’DALAW’ – bad script, bad direction, bad movie. I gave up during the first ten minutes and felt like it was a waste of time and money. I had high hopes before watching this since Star Cinema redefined horror movies in the Philippines with ‘Feng Shui’ and ‘Sukob.’ I couldn’t even decide which movie was better because both of them were superb. ‘Dalaw’ is definitely one of the suckiest horror movies to date in the tradition of ‘Villa Estrella,’ another cinematic nightmare. My conclusion? I will NEVER EVER watch any Dondon Santos-directed movie again! I felt cheated and secretly wished that I watched ‘Father Jejemon’ instead. At least, with this Dolphy-movie, I’m ready for the worst.
