Horror stories are deeply embedded in Filipino culture. We pride ourselves in our scary story-telling skills whether it be through film, folklore or in person. In that regard, most of us have our own little personal horror story to share whether it be a ghostly encounter, a kapre experience, or an unfortunate meeting with a White Lady.
Let us fill you in with some accounts of Pinoy celebrities and their brush with the paranormal. Here are Real life celebrity horror stories.
The Other Maid (Matet De Leon)
One day, Matet called up her friend who was a hairstylist to come to her house for a primping session.
Her friend was greeted by the helper at the gate and proceeded to enter the house to meet Matet and start the session. After they finished, Matet asked her helper to prepare dinner for them. While they were eating, the friend asked Matet for the whereabouts of the other helper that let her in the house since only one of them was serving the food. To her surprise, Matet only had one helper in the house. Her friend was adamant about seeing another one.
This terrified Matet, so she left this house and never looked back.
The Extra (Ton-Ton Gutierrez)
If you’ve watched the movie Dalaw, you might have caught a glimpse of a “visitor” at the end of the film. In the scene where Ton-Ton and his wife are fighting, just as she is about to exit the sliding door, a little head with long hair can be seen peeping through the space where the door was slightly ajar.
There couldn’t have been anybody else on set that day since it was a closed location. The actors were informed during the editing of the final cut and it frightened the cast. They shared their set with something paranormal. The “visitor” was never edited out from the final cut so you can spot it towards the end of the movie, if you dare.
Friendly Neighbors ( Elizabeth Oropesa)
Elizabeth is a famous actress-turned-spiritual medium. She says that being a bridge from the normal to the paranormal has always been her dream.
When she was a young child, she and her family recognized the possibility of her having a third eye. Elizabeth was never scared of the ghosts and actually played a lot with them. They would climb up trees and go into the forest. She claims all the ghosts were friendly and that the world they lived in was beautiful and simple.
Visions (Solenn Heusaff)
Solenn claims that she gets regular visits from the paranormal. When she was a young girl, her mother was so concerned about Solenn’s dark and grisly drawings that she sent her to see a specialist. Soon after, she started to hear, feel and see ghosts.
Her first experience was when she was a teenager in a city south of France. She was attending a surf camp with two of her friends. One day at the beach, they were looking out to the horizon when something grabbed her forearm and pulled her back. She paid little attention to this but it was her first paranormal experience. Since then, Solenn has regularly seen ghosts but she is not bothered by them. She has taught herself to cope. She just politely tells them to go away and according to her, they stop bothering her.
Solenn also had a household helper who had to be confined in a psychiatric hospital after encountering a kapre in one of the Heusaff’s mango trees. The tree was subsequently cut down.
