Nadine Luster delighted to be working on her first horror film


MANILA — Almost three years after quitting making movies, two-time Urian Best Actress winner Nadine Luster is looking to do some different stories this time around, outside of the usual romantic comedies she was used to. to do.

Earlier this year, Luster starred in Yam Laranas’ drama thriller, “Greed,” where she was paired with Diego Loyzaga. This time, Luster is cast in Mikhail Red’s upcoming horror thriller, “Deleter.”

“I’ve expressed my desire so much to have projects that really think outside the box,” Luster told ABS-CBN News. “Something different from what I’ve done before. Everyone knows I’ve done a lot of romantic comedies and dramas. Now I want to change it.

“I want to do roles and projects that are a bit more challenging, something new…I’m super excited to do ‘Deleter’ because this time around, I’m working in a horror movie.”

“Deleter” is a psychological horror film about a Lyka content moderator, who has to watch countless videos uploaded. She serves as the “front line” for the videos and she must choose to accept or delete it.

One night, she sees a horrible video of her colleague’s suicide. After she deletes it, strange things start to happen and a presence begins to haunt her.

“Deleter” is Luster’s first film project with Red. “Nakakapanibago, to be honest,” she admitted. “I want to see this film on the big screen. Na-miss ko ang premiere night so you can celebrate afterwards.

“The Tagalog ko na rin hindi nakanood ng sine. Hindi pa ulit ako nakakapasok ng sinehan since the start of this pandemic.

She is thrilled to work with Red, who also wrote the screenplay for “Deleter” with his younger brother, Nikolas, who worked with him on “Dead Kids” (2019).

“I am very excited to work with Direk Mikhail. To be honest, I haven’t seen any of his films. I know there’s “Block Z”, “Dead Kids”, and they are very innovative and thought-provoking films. I’m really excited to make a film that’s out of my comfort zone. It’s the thrill for me,” she said.

At 28, Luster is admittedly past the team love phase of his career. Preparing a psychological thriller is much more different than making a romantic comedy for her.

“‘You’re detailing a psychological thriller, more complex than doing a romantic comedy,'” she pointed out. “‘Yung character ko dito in ‘Deleter’ can more nuance. and may pinagdadaanan siya. Kailangan maintindihan niya ‘yung mga nangyayari around her.”

“I’ve always wanted to do psychological horror movies that I’m a fan of,” she said. “’Deleter’ is definitely the first and I’m really excited.

“I really like when a movie has a backstory or merong malalim na kwento. I like movies na after mo siyang panoorin, ilang days mo pa siya iisipin.

From the start, Luster knows she’ll love filming “Deleter,” which also stars McCoy de Leon and Louise de los Reyes.

“As a very passionate person, this is a na ito na gusto kong gawin movie,” she revealed. “For some reason, ‘pag umaarte kasi ako, merong adrenaline rush. At ‘pag nasa set ako, may nararamdaman akong adrenalin rush.

“So wait ko lang na talagang mag-eenjoy kaming lahat dito. It’s going to be good. We’re all passionate and we’re all going to collaborate. We’ll share ideas with each other. All of our ideas will definitely make this movie more interesting.
