The Mommy Returns is an upcoming family comedy-horror movie and is a Mother’s Day offering from Regal Films.
It is top billed by Gabby Concepcion, Ruffa Gutierrez, Pokwang, and John Lapus. Members of its cast include Gloria Diaz, Ervic Vijandre, Kiray Celis, Jillian Ward, Gerald Pesigan, Hiro Magalona, and Moi Marcampo.
The movie is about a mother, Ruby (Pokwang) who dies right on the day of her 25th wedding anniversary with husband, William (Gabby). With her untimely death, she is temporarily trapped in PURGA (short for Purgatory) with its guardian, Dyoga (Lapus), ang diyosa ng purga and the pesky Manny, the chicken pet of San Pedro.
Enter Catherine (Ruffa) – a younger, fresher, and much, much prettier woman who comes into the life of William. When she threatens to take Ruby’s place as mother to her three beloved children (Kiray, Gerald, and Jillian), hell breaks loose as Ruby escapes back to earth as a ghost to scare and drive Catherine out of the family she left behind.
It is directed by Joel Lamangan and premieres on May 9, 2012.
