The Healing is another engaging horror flick by Chito Roño that generates a respectable amount of suspense. This movie is starred by Gov. Vilma Santos for her 50th anniversary in show business and co-starred by Kim Chiu, Joel Torre, Janice de Belen, Pokwang, Martin del Rosario and many others. It was directed by Chito Roño.
I am really unsure of what to expect last night at the Director’s Cut of Chito Rono’s The Healing. Star Cinema’s The Healing is a story of Filipino tradition wherein people are asking for help on treatment of diseases. A news about the miraculous works of a faith healer spread like wildfire attracting the attention of people suffering from various illness coming from all walks of life. All of the sudden, the faith healer stops her “healing” sessions but was forced by a group of patient.
The story circled with the aftereffects of bringing a dead person back into life by a faith healer. Ever since that incident, lives of all those cured by the healer has been put into danger. An appearance of a doppelganger is a sign that something bad is going to happen to a character. When a character meets his doppelganger, he will go insane, harming other people and then eventually killing himself. The only way to break the curse is to kill the person who was brought back to life.
