GOIN’ Bulilit stars comprise the main cast of the suspense-thriller, “Class of 2018” headed by Nash Aguas and Sharlene San Pedro, whose love team is called Nashlene. Their fans really root for them, but recently, Nash admitted that his real girlfriend is Mika de la Cruz, also a Goin’ Bulilit graduate. How did Sharlene feel about this revelation?
“Okay lang po. Botong-boto po ako kay Mika. Kung saan po maligaya ang puso ni Nash, doon po tayo. Kami ni Nash will always be the best of friends at hindi na po 'yun mababago,” she says.
In “Class of 2018”, Sharlene plays Ada, a misfit in their class who continues to grieve for her dead father. Nash as RJ did a prank on her and she fell down the stairs, breaking her arm. Her dad was then rushing to the hospital to be with her when his car crashed and he died. Ada cannot get over it and cannot forgive RJ for what he did. She became very introverted and distanced herself from her classmates because of that.
Their whole class goes on a field trip to Mt. Bantayog and this proves to be an ill fated journey for all of them. A deadly virus that infected people in the 80s is contracted by one of their classmates and soon, the others are also infected. Men in military uniform then hold them captive and take them to a facility where they are quarantined against their will. Some folks manning the secret laboratory are observing them on TV monitors. All those infected by the virus turn into violent killing machines that attack everyone around them, leading to much mayhem and gore.
We’re sure Director Charliebebs Gohetia feels bad that the movie was given an R16 rating, which means the young teen fans, those who are 15 and below, of the Goin’ Bulilit stars feel sad that they cannot watch their idols in this suspense-thriller whose aim is to make them scream with fright and cheer for their beleaguered idols.
The movie’s very big cast include Adrian Alandy as the class teacher, Alex Medina as the schoolbus driver, Yayo Aguila as Sharlene’s mother, Dido de la Paz and Sherry Lara as the people in the secret laboratory, plus class members Kiray Celis, Michelle Vito, Jomari Angeles, Ethan Salvador, Kelvin Miranda and Kristel Fulgar who stands out as Sharlene’s wisecracking friend.
“Class of 2018” is produced by Rex Tiri of T-Rex Entertainment and is now showing in theaters nationwide.
