Matinee idol and acoustic heartthrob Sam Milby will be trading his good-boy image for a much darker persona when he stars in his first indie film titled Cul de Sac (Dead-end). He will be joined by Chin-Chin Gutierrez and Jodi Sta. Maria in this suspense-thriller about people working in the call center industry.
Written and directed by Juan Miguel Sevilla, Cul de Sac will have its premiere on November 15 and the regular run will take place in all SM cinemas starting November 19.
"My character is a bad boy talaga," says Sam during his Rockoustic press conference held at ABS-CBN last October 7. "He did some things in his past and he wants to redeem himself."
When Sam's character becomes a witness to a murder, he is thrown into an obsessive urge to solve it. His life becomes even more complicated when a menacing tall man stalks his every move and he encounters a mysterious lounge singer (played by Chin-Chin) who might be able to provide answers to his questions.
As he gets closer and closer to the truth, however, he finds himself right back where he started: the past he so desperately wants to escape.
