What Goes "Tik" in the Night

Advance Halloween guys! Sorry for the "none-blog" yesterday, I really need to get started with that auto-blogging stuff. Anyway, if you guys still remember what I usually blog about during Saturdays, you probably know that I'll be blogging about a movie today. So yeah, I'll get straight to the point and tell you guys that I'll be reviewing the movie, "Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles"

Let's slay 'em!

I recently watched this movie at Lucky Chinatown and thought it would be a nice topic for the upcoming Halloween season. So for the people who don't know what an "Aswang" is, it's one the Philippines' monsters or stuff like that; you know, like Bigfoot or the Lochness Monster. Yeah well, an Aswang is a creature who eats human flesh, they prefer fetuses straight from the mother's womb though. 

With that said, I'll continue blogging about the movie now; it stars Dingdong Dantes and Lovi Poe. The storyline goes like this: Makoy (Dingdong Dantes), an arrogant man, goes on a trip to a province looking for his ex-girlfriend, Sonia (Lovi Poe), after finding out she is pregnant with his child. Once there, he is initially unwelcomed by Sonia and her mother Fely (Janice de Belen). Of course, this does not affect him at first and he even plans to celebrate his soon-to-be-born child's birth by buying a pig for slaughter in the village. Sonia's father, Nestor (Joey Marquez), accompanies Makoy in buying a pig near the village. While there, Makoy unwittingly makes a scene with some troublesome teens, not knowing what this will cause. Chaos starts brewing once they arrived back at Sonia's house, and Makoy later finds out that he'll need more than just his arrogance if he wants to survive the night. The movie was directed by Erik Matti while the synopsis you read just now was made personally by me. So here's the trailer for the movie, hope you enjoy it guys!

Now all I've got to say is that the movie was awesome! The visual effects were very nice considering the movie wasn't produced by the usual big productions like Viva or StarCinema. The movie will have you gripping the edges of your seat in the fight scenes and have riling up at some of the characters. Well, that was my reaction anyway but hey, you wouldn't be able to relate with me if you haven't watched the film at all you know. So get moving and watch it at your nearest cinemas!
