Clarita is a supernatural horror film based on the life of Clarita Villanueva. Directed by Roderick Cabrido and written by himself and Derick Cabrido, the film stars Jodi Sta. Maria as Clarita in the lead role.
A demonic possession occurred in May 1953 when Clarita Villanueva, a 17-year-old girl incarcerated at the Manila City Jail, was bitten and tormented by two demonic entities. American Pastor Lester Sumrall flew to Manila, Philippines, in order to deliver the girl from the evil spirits. The case has been widely and sensationally reported worldwide.
Clarita Villanueva whose mother was a spiritist and fortune teller never knew her father. When she was 12 years old, her mother died, forcing her into a life of prostitution. She did not have an immediate family to take care of her and she became a vagabond. From her island province home, she made her way into the capital city of Manila in the summer of 1953 looking for her father, and settled in the district of Malate. Clarita was frequenting the bars and taverns of the city and soliciting men for harlotry. One morning, she mistakenly offered her service to a plainclothes police officer and was incarcerated at the Old Bilibid Prison (now Manila City Jail), since she was a minor and prostitution is a crime in the city. According to the grandson of the judge who handled Clarita’s case, she was possessed in the middle of a hearing.
Clarita described her attackers as a “very big dark man with curly hair all over the body” and “a body with an angelic face and a big mustache”
