Aside from that, Erik Matti’s horror flick is now on Netflix under the title “The Entity,” in select countries like Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and the Philippines.

On Sept. 26, “Kuwaresma” will be available in Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Produced by Reality Entertainment and Globe Studios, the film is about the family of couple Rebecca (Sharon) and Arturo (John Arcilla). When their daughter Manuela died, their son Luis comes home to pay his last respects and begins asking about the cause of death — but the parents kept mum. Luis consults a psychic to uncover the mystery of Manuela’s death, and eventually comes face-to-face with their family’s dark history.
