Synopsis: The first segment, Pamana, is set in the 80s, where a group of cousins (Herbert Bautista, Janice de Belen, Arlene Muhlach and Eri Neeman) gather at the house of a forgotten uncle to learn of their inheritance. They are promised 20 million pesos at the end of the month, but until then, they are to care for their uncle’s horror comics. Their lives are all put in danger when the monsters from the comics suddenly come to life.

Lost Command follows a group of soldiers (led by Dennis Trillo) as they trek deep into the jungle to investigate mysterious deaths in the area. They hear tales of aswang, of a battalion of soldiers who are no longer quite human.

Unwanted tells the story of Hank and Kate (Vhong Navarro and Lovi Poe), who we learn early on are pregnant with a child they’re not sure they want to keep. Before they can have much of a discussion about it, a large explosion traps them inside a shopping mall. The two, along with other survivors, try to find a way out, but standing in their way are all manners of strange creatures. (Click the City)

Reviews:

3.0        Carljoe Javier (Rappler)

“There are moments where the scripts might fail him, but at the very least everything here is entertaining (or at the very least attention-grabbing).” (Read full review)

3.0        Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“The result is as mixed as it’s always been, with only one of the segments really standing out.” (Read full review)

3.0        Katrina Stuart Santiago (GMA News)

“Thankfully the writing of these stories, the believable dialogue and fictional relationships, balanced out the false shine and shimmer of technologically enhanced creatures.” (Read full review)

3.0        Nicol Latayan (Tit for Tat)

“I like how they connected the first segment with an old horror concept: the power of comics. There’s really something that’s comfortable to watch here that makes the whole episode enjoyable.” (Read full review)

3.0        Mark Angelo Ching (PEP)

Shake, Rattle & Roll 14 is a mixed bag. But moviegers should still see it for “Pamana,” which is worth the price of the entire ticket.” (Read full review)

2.5         Jessica Zafra (InterAksyon)

SRR 14: The Invasion is terrible, but it is oddly enjoyable.” (Read full review)

2.5         Edgar Calabia Samar (Atisan)

“I waited until the credits rolled, and realized I was not shaken and rattled, unlike when I was very young. The series did not grow old with me.” (Read full review)

2.5         Jason Domantay (Yahoo Philippines)

“Watching  Shake Rattle and Roll films can be tough. For one, there’s less screen time for every story. Thus the viewer is less emotionally-invested in the characters and even in the supernatural beings.” (Read full review)

2.5         Zig Marasigan (Kristn)

Shake, Rattle, & Roll 14: The Invasion offers some mild entertainment with very little going for it past the first episode.” (Read full review)

2.5         Cathy Peña (Make Me Blush)

“While these three old tales were compelling to watch, Rono’s new age fables are emotionally distant and uninteresting.” (Read full review)

2.5         Cinerama Etcetera

SRR Fourteen was not able to sustain its strong beginning because of a deteriorating storyline that left more questions than answers.” (Read full review)

2.5         Kikko Kalabud (Hot for Movies)

“This would have been a great ‘comeback’ for this famous local horror anthology but it turned out to be a little lackluster than expected.” (Read full review)

2.0         Andie Reyes (Katipunan)

“While Pamana is surprisingly sly, delivering the expected characters-coming-to-life narrative with a winking, self-aware humor, Lost Command seems to be less concerned with making sense of the story it’s telling than in aping zombie movie formulas.” (Read full review)
