Regal Shockers back on TV 5

REGAL ENTERTAINMENT teams up with TV5 to bring back the early 90s hit, “Regal Shockers”, starting November 5 after the “The Jose and Wally Show Starring Vic Sotto”. Mother Lily and daughter Roselle Monteverde-Teo said at the launch that they welcome working with TV5 Creative head Perci Intalan in making an updated version of “Regal Shockers” for today’s generation. “We got the best writers and directors to come up with the best concepts for each episode and we also make sure we select the right stars to please our viewers,” says Roselle.

The first episode, “Elevator” directed by Topel Lee, stars Gabby Concepcion as a crippled father whose daughter is confined in a hospital where the elevator turns out to be haunted by Nina Jose. Gabby has to fight Nina who wants to take his daughter. “We shot it in an abandoned hospital and we really felt the spirits hovering around during the taping,” said Direk Topel.

The second episode, “Red Shoes” helmed by Soxie Topacio, stars Ruffa Gutierrez as a model who finds a beautiful pair of red shoes in an “ukay-ukay” store. When the owner refuses to sell it, she steals it. But when she puts in on, she can no longer take it off. It turned out to be possessed by the spirit of Lara Precious Quigaman. Wendell Ramos stars as Ruffa’s husband. Ruffa didn’t show up at the presscon. Obviously, she doesn’t want to be questioned about her involvement in the John Lloyd-Shaina breakup.  See a related article where Ruffa made Shaina feel insecure.

The third story, “Piano” megged by Rahyan Carlos, stars Alex Gonzaga who’s taken by parents Bobby Andrews and Angel Jacob to a rest house where there is an old piano. Alex plays the piano and she gets haunted by past owner Edgar Allan Guzman. The fourth episode, “Kulam”, stars Martin Escudero.
