The first thing one would notice in Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles is how incredibly gorgeous the computer-generated visuals are, at least compared to other Filipino productions.

What? You guys don't know what a friggin' Aswang is? Let's put it this way... this breed of vampire doesn't brood, doesn't dress in hip clothing, and they certainly don't sparkle. Read on for the first details on Tiktik The Aswang Chronicles!
This new Filipino film from director Erik Matti stars Dingdong Dantes, Lovi Poe, Joey Marquez, Janice De Belen, Ramon Bautista, Roi Vinzon, Lj Reyes, Mike Gayoso and Rina Reyes, and will be released in the Philippines on October 17th, 2012.

All the backgrounds, including trees, mountains and creatures were laboriously and painstakingly realized using the latest computer technology. It honors the genre’s traditions without taking itself too seriously as it combines honest-to-goodness scares with irreverent Pinoy wit and humor.
