Feng Shui is one of the relatively new films in the list but its significance in the horror genre is already engraved in Philippine cinema. Who wouldn't remember the creepy steps of Lotus Feet? Or the fear that looking at a bagwa could bring so much fortune but can also lead to bad luck once we've got hold of everything?
