Jerico Estregan Delighted That Feedback Of Those Who've Seen His Movie, 'Amalanhig, The Vampire Chronicle', Is Very Positive And Encouraging

JERICO ESTREGAN understandably feels tense as his first starring role, “Amalanhig, The Vampire Chronicle”, opens in theaters nationwide today. “I gave my all in this action-horror movie,” he says. “Nagkasugat-sugat ako in the fight scenes with the monster called amalanhig, pero okay lang, basta sa ikagaganda ng pelikula. And I'm happy kasi, so far, ang ganda ng feedback. Lahat ng nakapanood nito sa premiere night congratulated me dahil nagustuhan nila talaga ang kabuuan ng movie and they liked my performance as the amalanhig fighter.”

In the story, he plays a student doing research on the mythical creature called amalanhig in the remote town of San Esteban. Little did he know that he will really encounter the dreaded creature, which is half human-half animal, face to face and put his life in danger.

“Our director, Jun Posadas, did a good job in telling the story, talagang full of suspense. And also part of the mysterious story is that of a cult headed by Nick Aladdin. You’d be surprised on how they’re connected with the amalanhig. Viewers who love to watch action-adventure films with a touch of horror will surely appreciate our efforts na mapaganda ang pelikulang ito.”

Jerico is paired with Kapuso actress Sanya Lopez in the movie. They play sweethearts and have a couple of kissing scenes. Does he think Sanya is a potential girlfriend? “Yes, of course. Big potential. She’s slim and pretty and very cooperative. Dedicated niya sa craft niya and very professional. I'm glad siya ang naging kapareha ko in my first big movie. Definitely girlfriend material siya.”
