A different kind of V -Day with Kim Chiu

If you are still settling for the typical home dinner and movie night combo this Valentine’s Day, Kim Chiu has an interesting idea on how to add a little twist to that routine.

“Instead of watching a date movie, why not a horror film? It’s a nice idea if you want to be a bride of a ghost,” she said in jest during an intimate media conference held recently.

The Kapamilya star was referring to her movie The Ghost Bride which digs deeply into the mysterious Chinese tradition of ghost weddings. The film also stars Matteo Guidicelli, Christian Bables, Alice Dixson, and Ina Raymundo. The horror film is now streaming exclusively on iFlix and the third film from Star Cinema to be featured on the SVOD platform.

“It’s an interesting take on Valentine’s to invite your date over to your house and watch something like that,” she added

In the movie, Kim plays Mayen, a young woman trying to save her family home while taking care of her ailing father. In return for a huge sum of money, she speaks to a Chinese matchmaker (Dixson) and agrees to become a “ghost bride” to a wealthy but deceased Chinese man. But when the dead man’s ghost endangers Mayen’s family and loved ones, Mayen has to find a way to save her family, and ultimately, herself.

 'The Ghost Bride,' a film directed by Chito S. Roño, digs deeply into the mysterious Chinese tradition of ghost weddings.
