Sundo is a 2009 pinoy horror movie that literally means “someone to pick you up when it’s your turn to die”. The story started after Romano (Robin Padilla) as a soldier survived and recovered from a war whom he’s the only one to come home alive. After waking up in a hospital, he started seeing something different around him and these are ghosts of the dead. He didn’t realized at first what it meant to him until they follow him even at home. Romano didn’t show fear to the people around him at home but it’s obvious to them that he has something that he’s afraid of.
Louella (Sunshine Dizon), Romano’s childhood friend and now a medical doctor visited them and confessed to have peace after their own family’s troubles and offered help to Isabel (Rhian Ramos), Romano’s blind sister to be checked by an expert ophthalmologist. Romano didn’t agree at first but due to his sister’s condition, he also accepted the offer later. They travel from Baguio to Manila to take Isabel to the doctor. Along with them is an aspiring actress, Kristina (Katrina Halili), a widow, Lumen (Glydel Mercado), and her nephew, Eric (Hero Angeles) and Louella’s driver Baste (Mark Bautista).
In the highway, Romano dreamed about an accident for unfortunately he saved them all from committing it but later Romano again saw the ghosts and even heard a baby crying. He saw many of them and decided to quickly leave the area. While eating in a cheap restaurant along the way, Romano saw again a ghost (sundo) that triggers someone will die later. Unfortunately, it was Lumen who died in the comfort room due to falling carpentry tools to her head. With this, she didn’t make it to her husband’s wake alive.
Later in the hospital, Romano indeed saw again a ghost hanging on the ceiling. It was the sundo of Eric but he didn’t know at first. It was in the wake of Lumen’s husband when he recognized the dead and again the sundo take Eric who died electrocuted. Suspicions has now arise that made them go back to Kristina’s residence to warn her but she didn’t believed them and instead get out of the house. It was then revealed that Kristina has a twin who is now her sundo and will take her dead. Kristina died in a spa where Romano and company were late to save her.
Baste suggested that Romano should consult a spirit questor and immediately located her but before she can tell how to avoid with the hauntings, Baste died after seeing also his sundo (the ghost of his father). The three remained calm and tried to escape the ghosts but instead of escaping them, they faced the ghost and later their sundo took them all.
