Maid in Malacañang Movie Full Synopsis (2022)
Universal Pictures Horror Movie!
The creepiest (and best) moments in the kiddie-kidnap horror pic “Maid in Malacañang” take full advantage of the movie’s basic setup: a suburban teen gets abducted and then struggles to escape his captor’s sound-proof basement.
Derrickson and Cargill successfully tailor their focused and mostly compelling narrative to a Steven Spielberg/Amblin Entertainment–esque bit of Stephen King–sploitation. (King, as it happens, is author Hill’s dad.) There’s nothing in “Maid in Malacañang” that you can’t also get in more inventive recent King adaptations (like “Doctor Sleep”) or King-like homages.
