“Diplomat Hotel” Is an Upcoming Horror Movie in 2013
“The Diplomat Hotel” is an upcoming horror movie 2013. The Filipino psychological horror is about a defamed reporter who is looking for any ways to improve the current situation and return to her normal career life. The main character decides to take her documentary crew to the Diplomat Hotel located in Baguio in Philippines, which has quite an unsavory reputation. She is planning to reveal the story of what actually occurred in the hotel.
Gretchen Barretto, Mon Confiado, Art Acuna, and Sue Prado are starring in the film, which is directed by Christopher Ad Castillo. It has been announced that the movie will be broadcasted during the 2013 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival that will be held on July 26.
Christopher Ad Castillo has stated that the film will not only provide the horror experience to its viewers, but also it has a social commentary throughout the whole plot. The movie demonstrates in what way the media manipulate and control people, our thoughts and actions, and it shows how strong and huge media’s influence is.
It is evident that there are a number of haunted places in the world, and a lot of tourists enjoy visiting such places for thrills and adrenalin. Although it would be logical not to explore such places, some brave youths don’t listen to anyone and can’t be stopped by any horror stories.
Thus, the Diplomat Hotel is one of such places, being a legitimately violently haunted hotel. Its history starts from the time invasion of the Philippines by Japanese, who took refuge in this building. The hotel was shut in 1973, after its last owner had died.
However, before that, hotel guests and staff claimed that they heard strange sounds, saw headless creatures, and other horror things. People who lived nearby could hear banging of windows and doors, terrible voices after the hotel had been closed. Certainly, a large number of ghost hunters and thrill-seekers were attracted by this place.
