A community rushes to a faith healer after learning that one of them was miraculously healed from a deadly disease by the same person. They are torn apart afterwards as the healing brings them a terrible curse that wreaks harm and death.
The Positive: The most unforgettable horror films helmed by Chito Roño like “Sukob” and “Feng Shui” were based from Filipino (and Filipino-Chinese) superstitious beliefs. “The Healing” instantly earns a spot in this roster not just by tackling our culture’s fondness on faith healers but also for being a well-made storytelling that goes far beyond just startling the audience.
The film generates a respectable amount of suspense, thanks to the superb cinematography and editing. It takes a few unexpected turns while covering a familiar territory.
