"Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay" is Star Cinema's official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2013 (MMFF). The film is a co-production of Skylight Films, Star Cinema, and Regal Films. The film was directed by Frasco Mortiz, and it will be released on Christmas Day.
The concept of the film is based on a Filipino superstitious belief that one should never go home directly after visiting a wake since it risks bringing evil spirits to one's home. One should first shake off (in Filipino, pagpag) whatever curse there may be to avoid being trailed by the soul of the dead.
