Get Possessed By
New Trailer Debuts Online!

TORONTO, ON - September 9, 2013 - Fresh out of the Toronto International Film Festival comes the poster and full-length trailer for Cannes award-winning director and festival vet Brillante Ma Mendoza's first horror film, SAPI. Mendoza has directed several internationally acclaimed films such as SERBIS, KINATAY, LOLA, CAPTIVE and last year’s THY WOMB. SAPI had its World Premiere in the Vanguard section of the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6th, and has received a great response. It will have one more TIFF screening on September 15th. Check out the new trailer below:

With the rival station Philippine Broadcasting Channel (PBC) eating up the TV audiences' major share, Sarimanok Broadcasting Network (SBN) needs a miracle to stay alive in the competition. In these mad and fearful times, SBN's news team finds that documenting an actual spiritual possession would be their only hope.

Tasked to head the documentary production is MERYLL FLORES, a trainee TV Executive producer, along with DENNIS MARQUEZ, the reporter. Needless to say, the success of the project will also secure their eventual promotion in the company. However, the miracle seems to evade Meryll's team. They go to distant places, schools, provincial areas, religious groups, and faith healers, just to cover the case of mass possession, but to no avail. They simply cannot find a single incident of possession. Worse, BARON VALDEZ, cameraman of the rival network PBC, is the one who was able to capture the isolated case of demonic possession that involved a high school teacher (Ruby).

To fulfill her task, Meryll enters into a deal that is more profoundly horrifying than the harrowing scene of paranormal possession. To acquire the needed footage, she buys the outtakes of the Ruby possession case from Baron. But at the point where Meryll imagines to be the turning point of her new career, an exorcising reality dawns on her with a spiraling effect that mirrors the political system governing the TV network.
