Actor Raymart Santiago got injured while shooting a crucial scene in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017 entry Haunted Forest.
The minor accident happened while they were shooting the scene where Jane Oineza's character was possessed, a sequence that shown in the trailer.
He explained, "Pinasukan yung anak ko [ng evil spirit], tapos tinulak ako, tapos nabangga ko yung bintana, yung bintanang malaki. Nasa trailer yun, e.
"Yung nahulog na bintana, tumama dito, tanggal ito. Patubo pa lang pero tanggal yung buo."
Raymart then showed the nail on his pinky finger, which has slowly grown back.
According to the 44-year-old actor, the injured finger caused him a great deal of pain and the bleeding did not stop so he decided to bring himself to the hospital.
Laughing, he recalled, "Iniwanan ko sila sa shooting, e! Ako na nagdala, di na ako nagpaalam. Magpapaalam pa ba ako?! Masakit!"
"Tinulak ako, nahulog yung lumang bintana, yung mabibigat, yung frame yung tumama sa akin. Pero ayos naman.
"Inaawat ko siya [Jane], pag ganun, tumutulo, parang gripo yung dugo!"
Because of the accident, the scene was not finished and other sequences had to be shot three weeks later.
He continued, "Stop yun, tas yung dugtong, kinuhanan after three weeks.
"Parang di ko pa kayang umawat awat kasi masakit, e! Pero yung iba, nagsu-shoot kami, wala munang hawakan, salita salita muna."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) spoke to Raymart during the MMFF 2017 Christmas Party for the Press at the QCX Museum in Quezon City.
Aside from Raymart and Jane, Haunted Forest also features ABS-CBN young actors Maris Racal, Jon Lucas, and Jameson Blake.
