Kim Chiu’s kin agrees to be a ghost bride for fortune


Direk Chito Rono is known for doing movies that can be considered as “out of the box,” not the usual and could be controversial at times. Think of “Feng Shui,” “Badil” and even “Spirit Warriors.”

After doing “The Healing” with Cong. Vilma Santos in 2012, Direk Chito and Kim Chiu reunite in another kind of horror flick in Star Cinema’s “The Ghost Bride” to be shown on November 1.

Kim is familiar with the story of “The Ghost Bride.” At the movie’s presscon last Tuesday, she revealed that a relative of theirs agreed to become a ghost bride (marry a dead person) in exchange for a fortune that enabled her to pay off all the family debts.

Said relative is cousin of her grandmother from whom she learned of the story. 

But being a ghost bride is a big responsibility, according to Kim. But she may do so if she is not in showbiz and if she happens to be in dire financial need.

For those who love horror movies,” The Ghost Bride” is the perfect film for you. The movie is scary, which is the trademark of a Chito Rono horror film.

The movie tackles the unique wedding practice that has its roots from old Chinese tradition.

The movie revolves around Mayen (Kim), a Filipino-Chinese who gambles with her life in a secret tradition from the Chinese culture, upon the advice of a mysterious matchmaker named Madam Angie Lao, to help her family.

She agrees to the unusual practice of getting married to a dead person in exchange for financial help. What secrets will Mayen discover in the process that will change her life forever?

Direk Chito was asked if there is a character that he will introduce in “The Ghost Bride,” in the same that Feng shui gave birth to the character Lotus Feet.

"There will be a number of interesting horror characters in “The Ghost Bride.” But you know me. I don’t reveal anything about my movies. It is best that you get surprised when you watch the movie.”

For her part, Kim said she considers it a big honor to be working again with Direk Chito.

“The Ghost Bride” also stars Matteo Guidicelli, Christian Bables, Robert Sena, Jerome Ponce. Kakai Bautista, Beverly Salviejo, Luz Fernandez and Ina Raymundo.
