Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay - A Filipino Horror Film

Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay (referred to as Pagpag: 9 Lives) is a 2013 Filipino supernatural horror film directed by Frasco S. Mortiz. The film was released on December 25, 2013, at the Metro Manila Film Festival and stars Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla with Paulo Avelino and Shaina Magdayao.


The film follows a group of teenagers that are terrorized by an evil spirit after they do not follow the Filipino paranormal superstitions called "pagpag". The film revolves around the traditional Filipino belief that one should never go home directly after visiting a wake since it risks bringing evil spirits or the deceased to one's home.

Plot Summary

Cedric and his friends Hannah, Ashley, Rico and Justin come upon the funeral of Roman with his wife, Lucy, which is arranged by undertaker Leni and her colleagues Dencio and Marcelo. After the funeral, Marcelo sweeps the room when Eva, Lucy's older sister, scolds him as it is a bad superstition. All of the guests violate a superstition: Hannah drops tears on the coffin when she sees Cedric holding Leni's hand; Rico wipes the coffin with a handkerchief; Justin steals bread from the funeral; Ashley looks at her reflection in the mirror; Cedric attends the funeral with a wound; Dencio steals the money below the coffin and they all fail to do "Pagpag", an act of dusting off oneself after a funeral to avoid being followed home by evil spirits.

At home, Leni's adopted brother Mac-Mac sees apparitions and draws nine figures with a number 8. Marcelo is killed by a malevolent entity while sweeping outside. Dencio blames Leni for not doing the Pagpag and tells her that the spirit is coming back for the rest of them. He proceeds to tell her the story of how Roman died. Roman and Lucy once had a son, Emmanuel, who died. Roman made a pact with the Devil to bring back his son, but had to kill nine people in order to do so. After committing his sins, he found his son well and alive inside his coffin. One night, the people from the barrio tried to burn Roman's house down after learning of his pact, leading to his death and the disappearance of his son.

The spirit of Roman starts to haunt and kill Cedric's friends one by one in different ways according to their superstitions. Hannah is drowned in her bathtub; Rico is electrocuted by his laptop; Justin is choked by bread; Ashley is stabbed by shards of glass from her mirror. Cedric tries to save them but fails. He also learns that Leni is his childhood friend who he once saved from drowning. He realizes that he has feelings for her and vows to protect her.

Leni and Cedric go to Eva's house to seek help, but they find her dead as well. They also discover that Mac-Mac is actually Emmanuel, who was adopted by Leni's parents after they found him wandering in the streets. They realize that Roman wants to kill them all to complete his pact and take back his son. They decide to go back to Roman's house and confront him.

At Roman's house, they encounter his spirit and fight him off with holy water and salt. They also find Lucy's corpse inside a coffin. They manage to escape and run to a nearby church, where they meet Father Ponce, who agrees to help them. He tells them that they need to destroy Roman's body and Emmanuel's coffin to break the curse.

They go back to Roman's house with Father Ponce and some policemen. They find Roman's body hanging from a tree and Emmanuel's coffin in a shed. They set them on fire, but Roman's spirit attacks them again. He kills Father Ponce and some policemen before going after Leni and Cedric.

Leni and Cedric try to escape in a car, but Roman causes them to crash. He drags Leni out of the car and tries to kill her, but Cedric intervenes and stabs him with a cross. Roman drops Leni and grabs Cedric, saying that he will take him instead of his son. He then disappears with Cedric, leaving Leni alone and devastated.

The next day, Leni visits Cedric's grave and mourns for him. She sees Mac-Mac, who tells her that he is sorry for everything. He gives her a drawing of Cedric and her holding hands, saying that he made it for them. He then hugs her and says goodbye. He walks away and fades into thin air, implying that he has crossed over to the afterlife.

Leni looks at the drawing and sees that it has nine figures with a number 8, meaning that Roman has completed his pact and taken Cedric's soul. She screams in horror as the screen cuts to black.

It refers to the act of shaking off any dirt or dust from one's body or clothes after attending a wake or visiting a cemetery. It is believed that doing so will prevent any evil spirits or bad luck from following one home.

These are all considered to bring bad luck or attract evil spirits to oneself or one's family.
