Virgin Forest – another erotic thriller from Brillante Mendoza

A photographer mesmerized in a forest’s beauty will get more than he bargained for, when he discovers that the forest is not just full of luscious greens, but it is also full of humans with lustful greed. VIVA Films and Center Stage Productions bring you a new film from award-winning director Brillante Ma Mendoza, “VIRGIN FOREST” starring Sid Lucero, Vince Rillon, Rob Guinto, Katrina Dovey and Angeli Khang showing this June 24 on VIVAMAX. Francis (Sid Lucero), a Photo-journalist commissioned to take pictures of the largest flower of genus Rafflesia known as Rafflesia Schandenbergiana, a parasitic plant species endemic in the province of Bukidnon known as Bo-o to the Bogobo tribe or Kolon-Busaw to the Higaonon tribe--discovers more than what he bargained for: an illegal logging operation and a ‘prostitution den.

’ This is where he meets Angela (Katrina Dovey) and her younger sister Karla (Angeli Khang), who are both captive prostitutes. Francis’ professional endeavor takes a backseat as he musters all his courage to save both girls before it’s too late.
