Description: Diane the Zebra Girl follows four women’s misadventures through the roads of NYC 1962. All played by Flame [Schon], the characters consist of The Detective, The Mother, The Child, and the Medium (Girl on Bicycle). Amidst the enclave of the French fresh wave, an evident influence tells Flame, metaphor is enacted and embodied through every figure. “He sometimes would imagine that I reminded him of Jeanne Moreau, he liked the dark circles under her eyes.” Evocative of the stage from which it emerged, the movie details cameos from integral figures like William (Bill) Levy, Jonas Mekas, Paul Morrissey and details an original score composed by Malcolm Goldstein.

Pa-siyam Reviews:

I was just expecting some average horror movie that would come out in my monitor. But as I had the video rolling it had hooked me in a very fashionable and stylized movie; a rare feat for most of the Filipino directors we have in this film industry. These film as I can consider is a neo-classical gem of a movie. I have watched many horror films both foreign and local. But honestly I didn't like most of the local films especially Sukob (which I search at the least boring), and Feng Shui, with the clichéd long black-hair-covered-faced-woman. But this film can stand on it's own.The storyline begins at the wake of the main character's mother. He (Roderick Paulate)had decided with his 4 siblings that they could stay for their mother's Pasiyam. But during the Pasiyam rites they begin experiencing horrid manifestations that occur while they are asleep. With the support of the strange lady they uncovered the truth on what really is happening.The film is dark, and entertaining. It really got me smiling at the ending. Though I was sad about Ruth (I found Aubrey pretty for the first time). A great movie to add in the pantheon of Asian movies. A gotta see.


Pa-Siyam is a truly rare Filipino horror movie that can compare well to the another well known and copied Asian horror counterparts. While many horror movies copy the usual Ringu, Ju-On, and Dark Water trio, Pa-Siyam draws upon local superstition as a source. The movie builds up the tension and atmosphere to deliver scares that are not cheap. Unique kudos to Paulate who is tremendous and is able to break out of the usual fare he was involved in. The rest of the cast did nice as well. Despite the tiny budget, the movie delivers the goods in a more efficient and effective manner than some of the bland and large budget copies of successful horror trends. Note, I didn't test the subtitle so I can't comment on it.


Pa-Siyam is a about the gathering of a recently deceased woman's sons and daughters for the funeral and to carry out the traditional 9 days of prayer. In that time, a haunting starts to take zone and deep family secrets are unburied.This is Erik Matti's first effort in the horror category and I was brought to it after watching his short films, Vesuvius and I is for Invincible, and detail length movie, Seklusyon. All of which I consider not only some of the greatest horror films but also some of the greatest productions in Philippine Cinema. What the three have in common are: They have relentlessly terrifying sound designs, immersive cinematography, and tight storylines, the three aspects that create these horror flicks stand out.While Pa-siyam has a special storyline and culturally rooted, it is dulled by the deterioration of the technical aspects and doesn't quite dazzle now, as it probably did back then when it was first shown. As recorded, it was nominated for the Gawad Urian (a distinguished award giving body in the Philippines by critics) Award for Greatest Production Design by Richard Somes, for Greatest Sound by Ramon Reyes, and Greatest Cinematography by J.A. Tadena in 2005 but viewing the film actually (2018) its difficult to appreciate its achievement. Fortunately, despite of the fuzziness of the existing copy, a several bits withstand the damage, and have caught my attention One is the acting of Roderick Paulate as the stern, eldest sibling. It is a rarity to see him in such a role as he is known mostly in comedy and as a lively host in a long running noon time show. Nevertheless, he does a very nice job disappearing into the character. Other is the climax, which shocking nature has only been slightly diminished by quality loss. These beg the question "What if it is in its pristine condition?" I trust if does receive picked up for restoration, it would be a mighty fine discovery of a gem of a film. Otherwise, its just an okay film with its potential denied of exhibition.
