Sigaw Movie Plot Summary
In this movie, Richard Gutierrez plays Marvin, a young man who has just moved in a unit of an old building while Angel Locsin plays Pinky, Marvin’s girlfriend who frequently visits him. Almost every night, Marvin hears screaming of Anna (Iza Calzado) from a nearby unit being beaten by her abusive husband cop Bert (Jomari Yllana). Marvin complained to the caretaker (Ronnie Lazaro) but he was told to just ignore it.
Anna and her young daughter Lara (Ella Guevara) would always ask help from Jude (James Blanco), who also lives in the same building. Shortly, Bert suspects that Anna and Jude are having an affair but this is not true. Later, Marvin saw Bert beating Anna but he did not help him because it seems that he is only hallucinating. But then, Pinky also starts to feel the terror at the apartment. The two will later discover a dark secret.
