Only Mother Lily Can Make Kapuso, Kapamilya And Kapatid Stars Work Together In One Movie

ONE FILMFEST entry that succeeded in making Kapuso, Kapamilya and Kapatid stars work with each other is “Shake, Rattle & Roll 14”. No wonder Mother Lily Monteverde is happy because there’s no network wars for Shake and she can promote her movie in all channels.

The first episode, “Pamana”, has mostly ABS stars like Janice de Belen, Arlene Muhlach, Empress, Ivan Dorschner and Dimples Romana. Only one is from GMA, Fabio Ide, who plays Dracula. The independent stars here are QC Mayor Herbert Bautista and child actor Gerald Pesigan.

In “Unwanted”, the stars are GMA’s Lovi Poe, ABS Vhong Navarro, Albie Casino and Chokoleit, and TV5’s Eula Caballero. The independents here are the CGI creatures from outer space who will scare the cast members when they get trapped inside a mall that collapsed after a big explosion caused by the aliens.

In the last episode, the action-horror episode “Lost Command”, the stars are GMA’s Dennis Trillo, JC Tiuseco and AJ Dee, ABS Paulo Avelino, Ella Cruz and Makisig Morales, and TV5’s Martin Escudero.

“In scope, budget and casting, this is the most ambitious ‘Shake’ movie so far,” adds Mother Lily. “It’s financially and emotionally draining to do. Buti na lang very dedicated sa project si Direk Chito Rono. Talagang tinutukan niya ang bawat aspeto ng movie from the writing of the script nina Ricky Lee, Roi Iglesias and Rody Vera, hanggang sa iba’t ibang technical aspects, lalo na ang CGI special effects to make the movie truly scary.”
