Elwood Perez is no stranger to skin flicks. SILIP remains his most shocking, bizarre and exploitative film penned by the respectable Ricky Lee. Bad movie that you will love or hate due to excess nudities and gore thrown in. Cashing on the ECP craze during the 80's, I presume this was shown uncut at the now ghostly Manila Film Center which showed the rivalry between Ma. Isabelle Lopez & Sarsi Emmanuelle. The acting, the loud annoying musical score by Lutgardo Labad made this a Z-movie
. Where else can you find Lopez teaching cathecisms to children and holding her lusts to stud Mark Joseph with no underwear at all? Move over, Sharon Stone!
Sarsi Emanuelle plays the liberated type who comes back to her childhood barrio and Lopez is the conservative one. The plot became more complicated because of Myra Manibog and the children who adore Lopez, who cares about the plot anyway? One of the barrio lass was killed, accusing Lopez as the killer and a lunatic. Hang on for the truly mad sequence in the history of erotic films in which Lopez & Emmanuelle are tied in all their naked glory by the towns folk. But instead of the men saving them, they raped the two barrio lass! Were there redeeming values in this film? Yes, folks there are! At least equality exists among the lead protagonists since Lopez, Emmanuelle and Joseph all suffered the same fate, with the exception of Joseph, the most cruel one. And hey, there's the value of friendship.
With movies like this no wonder, Philippine Cinema would surely rise from the grave.
