From award-winning filmmakers Michiko Yamamoto (Magnifico, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros), Jade Castro (Endo), and Raymond Lee (Anak, Milan, In My Life, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros) comes a one-of-a-kind thriller/comedy/coming-of-age story about a curse, gay zombies, and a boy’s journey into gayhood.
Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington brought the house down when it premiered to a fully packed CCP Main Theater last July.
Entirely shot in Lucban, Quezon, the movie follows the life of Remington, a happy-go-lucky young man content at being another tambay along with his tagay-loving comrades. Until, of course, the lovely Hannah, a childhood friend, returns to their small, quiet town.
Hannah rebuffs Remington because she finds him lazy and uncouth. Then Remington starts becoming neater, nicer and more sensitive.
While Hannah begins to appreciate what seems to be a new Remington, his transformation is actually just the beginning of wearing baby tees, swaying his hips while walking, and sensing a strong attraction to his best buddy Jigs even as he also feels a liking towards Hannah.
Around town, curious things are also happening. A serial killer is on the loose and gay men are the target.
In Remington’s dreams, ghoulish characters are taking over.
With the help of Hannah and their friend Jigs, Remington investigates why masked macho dancers are all of a sudden invading his sleep, why he’s suddenly fluent in gayspeak, and why gay zombies are roaming the streets.
Directed by Jade Castro, produced by Raymond Lee, and written by Raymond Lee, Michiko Yamamoto and Jade Castro, the movie stars Martin Escudero, Lauren Young, Kerbie Zamora, Janice de Belen, John Regala, Roderick Paulate, Eugene Domingo, Angelina Kanapi, Narcies Cabico, and Odette Khan.
