East Winds are proud to offer a special presentation of one of the most celebrated genre films to emerge from the Philippines in recent memory, Pedring Lopez’s ‘The Entity: Nilalang’.

Scooping up countless awards across the world festival circuit, Lopez’s dizzying blend of genres, from action, martial arts to vampire movie, has marked the director as one of the most exciting talents in East Asia.

NBI special crimes division agent Tony (Cesar Montano) encounters an evil entity which is bent on killing and torturing beautiful women, one of which was his girlfriend, years after he thought to have killed the malevolent spirit.

People close to Tony are in danger, including his partner Jane (Meg Imperial), who has romantic interest towards him with everyone in the agency aware of this fact except for Tony.

The spirit, who has killed many people in Japan, is thought to be targeting women from a certain clan of samurai. In Manila, Miyuki (Maria Ozawa) handles the family business while her younger sister is taking care of their ageing father.

Miyuki is later forced to help in the investigation after Akane went missing and their father was found dead, trying to put a stop to the evil entity’s killing spree.
