After 2 hours of vein bursting, long queuing on SM cinema, we finally got 2 tickets for PAGPAG - Siyam na Buhay movie, a Filipino horror and suspense film with a twist of romance/love and humor/comedy from hottest young stars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo.

MyPhone Android Spotted on PAGPAG Siyam na Buhay Movie - A Review
|Daniel Padilla with A919i DUO, quad core Android smartphone from MyPhone.|
The first couple of minutes is the introduction of main characters, movie shots are clear, artistic and excellent and mostly cameras are shooting for still scenes. Surround sound audio is very clear, sharp and heart pumping except for the last part of the movie (not sure if its audio glitch, I think 10 minutes before the movie ends).
What really caught my attention is the use of MyPhone mobile phone (I'm thinking it's A919i DUO Android phone, Philippine map is very obvious) used by Daniel Padilla in one of the scenes. Another scene is the use of LED flash as flashlight.
The use of current technology are frequently used in the movie, aside from touchscreen mobile phone, KakaoTalk is featured - a free mobile messaging App with free calls and text. Mobile phone front camera is also used for "selfie" and video recording and don't forget special effects - it's very good and aesthetic.
Overall, my impression with the movie is inspired by a combination of "The Ring" and "Final Destination" movies and I will give a verdict of 8 out of 10, a horror film for family.
Let us support Filipino made movies!
