Horror Queen Lilia Cuntapay Passed Away at 81


Philippines Horror Queen Lilia Cuntapay Passed away at age of 81

At 6am , the 81 years old actress passed away in the house of his son in  Barangay Tartarabang  Pinili, Ilocos Norte. The news was later  confirmed by her grandchild.

Lilia Cuntapay is known to have played, besides the nursemaid on Shake, Rattle, and Roll, various spine-tingling characters such as a mangkukulam (witch), albularyo (witchdoctor), multo (ghost), and the most famous and well-known out of all the roles she have played was the aswang. And because of all the horror film characters she had portrayed, she has been dubbed as the Queen of PH horror films—a title she truly deserved. In 2011, she had won the Best Actress award from Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival on the mockumentary “Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay” about the life of being a film extra.

Few days ago, the horror queen , Lilia, who has been shown on a video that went viral on Facebook, was seen to be in great misery because she had no funds to pay for her hospital bills and that she can hardly walk and talk because of the complication she had acquired on her spinal cord that had allegedly started on July 5. The woman can be seen to have difficulty in pronouncing and uttering words that her voice can be heard shaking and stuttering which can be said the the Horror Queen is going through a lot of trouble and pain.

The video was uploaded on YouTube on Lilia’s account where she addressed her co-stars and people in the showbiz industry: “Kung nakikinig man ang mga concerned citizens, director co-workers, wala na ako sa showbiz dahil may sakit ako. Kung mahal nyo pa ko, any help will be appreciated.” That even though she can hardly talk, it feels like the pain does not end only into the physical aspect, but of both the thought of being forgotten and being shadowed by the light where she used to dance—in show business and film industry.
