this is good!
11 May 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

"Just because someone scolds you doesn't mean they don't love you." So how does that gem of advice relate to this supernatural/horror movie? You better watch and find that out for yourself! An aswang, in Philippine folklore, is a vampire that is also a shapeshifter. It particularly relishes babies in the womb or little children, but is not averse to feeding on adults when it's hungry. Alma Moreno plays the beautiful aswang in this movie. A very young Aiza Seguerra plays a rich kid on the run from assassins, and Manilyn Reynes plays her long-suffering yaya, or nanny. The village they happen to hide in also happens to be terrorized by an aswang. So how to kill it? I particularly like the part where the aswang changes from pretty woman to crone to cat and back again, as she strolls in the forest. And watch for the ending, it has a particularly nice twist to it. Just watch it, period.
