After moving into a run down apartment in a decrepit building — Marvin senses that something is amiss. Every night, domestic violence occurs at the home of his neighbours: an alcoholic cop, his wife Anna, and their daughter, Lara. When bloody apparitions of Anna and Lara flash before Marvin’s eyes, he begins to question his sanity.

Really good Filipino horror/ghost story. Predictable in some scenes but very unique in storytelling and the “scare” factor. Cinematography is excellent as well as music/sound and editing. This movie is so scary that it will frighten you even after you’ve seen it. Very eerie and claustrophobic. It’s very frightening because of the way the director made the film effective even without any special effects. Forget about the depth of the story – Sigaw was made just to frighten you pure and simple and in that it succeeds. It’s genuinely creepy. Definitely recommended.
