This was posted on the wall of the Facebook group Independent Cinema Artists of the Philippines.
Does the ad poster of Regal Films horror movie Guni-Guni resemble that of Thai horror movie Alone?
Members of the FB group also asked if the Lovi Poe-starrer film was also copied or inspired by the same Thai horror movie.
A certain Peter Belleza said that it is OKAY to copy a material, just as long as attribution is given.
"dapat, pag mangongopya tayo, iacknowledge natin yung kokopyahan, para d naman sayang yung hirap nung mga original artist na nagpapakahirap sa pag-iisip ng sariling magagandang idea. ok lang manggaya, pero wag naman, sobra- sobra, idea lang dapat."
PEP.ph has already left a message on the two Facebook accounts owned by Regal Entertainment for their reaction on this issue.
As soon as we have their statement on this, PEParazzi will post it right away.
