Pinanood ko ang Echorsis sa SM Megamall, first showing day on a last full show para naman masaya akong matutulog sa gabing ito.

Yung totoo, nag-expect talaga ako ng aliw factor dahil sa mga nabasa kong status sa social media na maganda raw ito.

Truelabells nga ang sinabi ng mga lola dahil talagang pak ang pelikulang ito. Dalawang bagay ang maganda dito. Maganda ang pagkasulat ng storya at pangalawa ay sobrang nakakaaliw ang mga eksena.

Minsan lang magkaroon ng pelikula na seryoso ang topic pero bongga ang katatawanan.

Maituturing na success ang Echorsis, maganda ang casting at hindi minadali ang shooting. 

Narinig ko sa isang seryosong direktor na interesado daw syang panoorin ang Echorsis matapos nyang mapanood ang teaser nito sa facebook - yung eksena ni Alex Medina at John Lapus sa fishbolan.

Anuman ang iyong kasarian tiyak na magugustuhan mo ang pelikulang ito.

Kung akala mong ine-echos lang kita?
Nagkakamali ka!

Walang naganap na confrontation kagaya ng eksena sa movie na makikita satrailer. One day, isang arawnecktie na lang ng nanay ko na ahit ang kilay ko.Tapos noong second year college akopina-invite nya ang mga friends ko saTeatro Tomasino (the theater guild of UST), eh puro mga bakla ‘yon at mga babaeng baklaNakita ko naman na inintertain sila ng nanay ko,” John Lapus recalls.  

“My father abandoned us when I was in Grade 6, so it was much easier siguroin my case na mag-come out, unlike Kristoff na lumaki kasama ang tatay nyangmilitary,” John muses.

In “Echorsis,” John’s character Kristoff is an emotionally vulnerable, closeted gay virgin who falls prey to a gigolo named Carlo (Alex Medina), who is possessed by a gay demon after Kristoff’s untimely death. Carlo later undergoes exorcism rites performed by Father Nick, played by Kean Cirpriano.

Movie fans believe that Echorsis’ which was produced by Chris Cahilig of Insight 360, directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Lemuel Lorca, and written by Jerry Gracio, is another breakthrough film for John who has played memorable roles in blockbuster movies like “Here Comes The Bride” and “Moron 5 and the Crying Lady.”   

Kahit na horror-comedy ang ‘Echorsis,’ malalim ang role ko ditoMay kaunti ring drama kaya kakaiba,” he reveals. “Nakakaaliw din ang concept na paminta ako nung una at first time ko yatang gumawa ng isang ‘dark comedy’.”

“Echorsis” lead star Alex Medina flattered by growing gay fan base
"Echorsis: Sabunutan Between Good and Evil," which features the triumvirate of comedian John Lapus, Callalily vocalist Kean Cipriano, and award-winning independent film actor Alex Medina, received overwhelming reviews from netizens who called the movie "one of the most awaited comedy flicks of the year."  The film was directed by critically-acclaimed filmmaker Lemuel Lorca and was written by Jerry Gracio.
Mention Alex Medina’s name when chatting with a gay friend and chances are your chum will show all signs of being totally smitten.



Indeed, the ruggedly handsome actor and lead star of the horror-comedy film, “Echorsis: Sabunutan Between Good and Evil,” has been the object of the local gay community’s sexual fantasies in the past few years, earning him the moniker “kilabot ng mga beki” or “gay heartthrob.”


“I like it,” Alex, the son of acclaimed actor Pen Medina, unabashedly admits. “If my being a gay heartthrob catches on, eh di sige, okay. I am comfortable with the way I am, which is why I’m fine with it. Nakaka-flatter s’ya actually.”

Medina relates that he used to receive numerous “indecent proposals” from gay fans on social media. However, such rabid attention eventually declined when he became more visible in movies and television. 

Dati ang dami-dami kong natatanggap na ganung messages, pero lately wala na halos. How did I respond to these? I would nicely but candidly tell them, ‘Sorry po, that’s not my thing,’ ” he says. 

The trailer, which has so far gone viral and received close to one million views, likewise attracted the straight crowd with some men even asking their girlfriends to watch the movie on their date.
“Must watch babe! Hahaha! Make some time for this movie babe please. Nakakatawa solid!” said Facebook user Christian Medina who is inviting his girlfriend.
Acceding to the persistent requests of netizens that the movie be shown in cinemas as soon as possible, the film produced by Chris Cahilig under Insight 360, is set to open on April 13 in theatres nationwide—a week ahead of its original schedule.
“There is a clamour for the movie to be shown earlier than its original April 20 play-date. We didn’t expect the public to be so excited to see it soon on the big screen,” said Cahilig.
“Echorsis,” a  parody of the iconic horror film “The Exorcist,” revolves around a gigolo Carlo, played by Medina, who is possessed by a gay demon after he deceived his closeted gay lover Kristoff (Lapus). The task of exorcising the devil out of Medina’s character then falls on the lap of Father Nick, who is portrayed by Cipriano.
Legions of Facebook users tagged their friends on the movie’s trailer, saying how excited they are to see it. Some even invited friends to watch ‘Echorsis’ with them. Veteran director Wenn V. Deramas also showed interest in watching the film.
The movie’s trailer was also posted on different blogsites where readers also showed enthusiasm toward the movie.
“Tawang-tawa ako bwisit!!! Mahusay! Suportahan natin ‘to, ‘wag puro overrated artists lang ‘yung sinusuportahan natin,” said a reader of FashionPulis.com.
“Oh em!! Natawa ako sa trailer! Mag showing kaya ditey sa Toronto?? I want! Mas ok ‘yung ganitong movie,” said another reader of the same blog.
Completing the ensemble cast of ‘Echorsis’ are Alessandra de Rossi, Chokoleit, Kiray Celis, Mich Liggayu, Ruby Ruiz, Negi Negra, Bekimon, Nico Antonio, Francine Garcia, Odette Khan, and 1:43’s Yuki Sakamoto, Anjo Resurreccion, Gold Aquino, and Yheen Valero.

“Echorsis” is supported by BellaVita Land Corp. and McJim Classic Leather.
