A vampire folklore horror from the Philippines with a macabre sense of humour and plenty of blood, guts, and garlic, from director Erik MATTI (ON THE JOB).
Cocky layabout Makoy (Dingdong DANTES) travels to a remote village to reconcile with his pregnant girlfriend. When he’s angrily turned away, he tries to win favour by purchasing a suckling pig for her birthday feast. Although a bargain price, the pig isn’t quite what it seems, and soon the family are fighting for their lives from a hoard of vicious, vampire-like Aswang.
The first full-length Filipino film to be shot using green screens, with stylised sets and a comic book look. Dingdong DANTES has his tongue firmly in his cheek as the square-jawed hero who has to step up and prove that he has what it takes to be a good husband and father.
