Maruja's Comeback Frightens our Saturdays

"Nasaan ka Maruja"...I'm scared? Well, many of us were scared every Saturday early evening. Have they already found 'Maruja'?

This is another revision of the Susan Roces classic hit way back from long ago. The original title derived from Susan's movie was "Gumising Ka Maruja"! Of course together with her leading man, Dante Rivero. Its nice to know that from the 3 hit horror movie of Ms. Susan Roces, she got only one leading man who is Mr. Dante River. And of course, its great now to see that these classic movies were already seen in our TV via different revivals played by our different actresses like Kris Aquino, Claudine Barreto, and now Khristine Hermosa. Upcoming to play is Ms. Maricel Soriano as "Florinda", another classic horror movie of Susan.

Maybe all of us were amazed to know that the same classic movie was from the masterpiece of Mars Ravelo. Well, aside from Darna, Dyesebel, Captain Barbel, Lastikman, and the various superheroes we used to watch every Saturday, Mars Ravelo had also this type of horror comics work! That's why we are watching it every Saturday under "Mars Ravelo's Komiks Presents"! It's great to know this fact aside from learning that it is an original horror movie of Susan Roces.

Originally horror and now revived as horror, another fact about 'Maruja' is that a movie version of this hit was already done way back in 1994. Maruja in that movie was played by Carmina Vilaroel with Rustum Padilla (now turned into BB GandangHari) as her leading man! And take note that in that movie, the 'Maruja' version is not a horror one but a love-drama story! And of course, from the original up to the revivals, the story-plot were all about the 'reincarnation' or 'past-life'!

Anything else, anything more, let us all enjoy watching this horror series that continuously frightens our Saturday! c",)
