GMA-7 actor Dennis Trillo gets the chance to work with ABS-CBN actress Beauty Gonzalez in his upcoming Star Cinema movie Hellcome Home.

This horror film, which will open in cinemas on October 30, also stars Raymond Bagatsing and Alyssa Muhlach.

Initially titled A Family Ghost Story, this movie revolves around two families haunted by ghosts and evil spirits.

The Kapuso actor is glad that he got the chance to work with Star Cinema, ABS-CBN's film production arm.

"Nalaman ko itong project two months ago. Then mabilis lang namin shinoot.

"May ilang days lang na tuloy-tuloy.

"Sobrang happy ako kasi makakagawa ako ng movie sa Star Cinema na hindi co-prod [production].

"Sobrang na-excite ako kasi alam ko na magkakaroon ako ulit ng isang quality na proyekto," said Dennis in an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last Saturday, October 12, at Breakout Katipunan.

How was it like working with Star Cinema?

"Sobrang swerte lang na ma-experience na makatrabaho sila ulit kasi bukod sa pagiging professional nila at sa kanilang expertise sa paggawa ng quality na movies, hindi lang dun nagtatapos ang trabaho nila.

"Pati yung pag-promo nila at yung pag-promote nila sa bawat artista at teaser. Kung paano nila nilalabas ang bawat material for promo. Talagang sobrang organized at well-thought of.

"Alam mong naka-strategize talaga.

"Naging masaya ang experience ko na makatrabaho ang ganung mga tao na may ganung klaseng work ethics."

He then explained why he agreed to be part of this horror movie directed by Bobby Bonifacio.

"Tapos nung mabasa ko yung script, lalo akong hindi makapaghintay na mag-start na ng shooting kasi itong movie na ito, ito yung klase ng pelikula na gusto ko ring panoorin as a movie fan.

"Nung nabasa ko yung script, sinabi ko, gagawin ko ito kasi ito yung tipo ng horror movie na gusto ko."

When asked how he got permission from his mother studio, GMA Network, to do this project, Dennis explained, "Sa GMA naman, ang contract ko dun is exclusive for TV.

"Hindi rin naman ganun ka-active ang GMA Films kaya siyempre, kailangan kong maghanap ng ibang venue para makagawa ka ng fulfillment mo sa career mo.

"Wala namang naging problema."

Will he get the chance to promote Hellcome Home in ABS-CBN shows?

"Meron akong mga show na pupuntahan dun para mag-promote ako. Pero hindi lahat."

What Kapamilya show will he appear in?

"Parang sa Magandang Buhay lang ako," he said with a laugh.

"Sa lahat nung pinagpaalam, dun lang sa isang show na iyon sila pumayag."

Is it okay with him that he was only allowed to appear in one ABS-CBN show?

"Mas maganda sana kung sa mas maraming shows makakapag-promote kasi yun yung point, para makapag-promote ka, kailangan sa iba't ibang klaseng venue, hindi lang sa isang show," admitted Dennis.

"Pero okay na din yun. At least napayagan ako na makapag-promote ako kahit sa isang show man lang ng ABS-CBN."

When asked to describe his character in Hellcome Home, Dennis said:

"Ako yung tatay ng isang bagong pamilya. Asawa ko dito si Alyssa at may isa pa kaming anak na baby.

"Isa ako sa breadwinner ng pamilya at meron silang secret na hindi alam. Wala na pala kaning pera.

"Mayroon akong nabiling lumang bahay na hindi ko alam, mayroon palang hindi magandang nangyari doon. Tumira kami doon at doon na magaganap yung mga kababalaghan."

What was the most difficult scene that he did for this movie that was shot in Pulilan?

"Marami akong ginawa na intense na eksena dito na almost possessed at demonic type.

"Yun lang ang masasabi ko sa ngayon. Maraming intense na eksena. Doon ako nahirapan.

"Very exhausting para sa akin. Physically draining, mentally, emotionally."
