Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles BlogCon

Kubot The Aswang Chronicles Poster

It may be recalled that Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles ended in a place called Pulupandan, where the whole massacre happened. The protagonists leave the place thinking that all is well until they were ambushed on the way to Manila. 

The sequel which is Kubot, happens two years after that whole tragedy and is set in Manila. Makoy, the main character played by Dingdong Dantes (who is also one of the producer of the film). just wants peace and quiet, not realizing that the aswang clans have a brewing problem. This time, Makoy will be fighting Doms, the character ineterestingly played by KC Montero.

(See also: Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles Trailer)

The film introduces a new character of the aswang which is the Kubot, giving viewers another fresh take on local folklore. Kubot is a clan of long haired female aswangs married to the Tiktik of Pulupandan whose abilities are more limited to morphing its hair into a tentacle like mass, which they use to strangle or squeeze their victim's innards out like gel. The main Kubot is played by versatile actress none other than Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa.

New additions in the cast include Isabelle Daza, Lotlot De Leon(replacement of Janice De Belen), Bogart the Explorer, Julie Ann San Jose, Jun Sabayton and Abra. From the original cast, we still see Joey Marquez and Ramon Bautista who resurfaces as a different character. Introducing in the film in a special role is Hanna Ledesma (replacement of Lovie Poe).

In an interview with the film director and co writer Erik Matti, it was very evident that the men and women behind the film take pride in the strong story line in Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles. This plus the amazing special fx and action sequences that were every challenging to shoot. Whereas Tiktik was shot on green screen, Kubot had a lot of scenes that were shot on location - mountain tops, quarry and in Binondo. A team of Chinese stuntmen and riggers were brought in for scenes that entailed hanging, jumping and flying to appear more exciting. Dave Yu, in-charge of special fx adds that in Kubot, there is also such a thing as digital prosthetic as the aswangs were real actors. The look of the main Kubot is very challenging as its hair has to look real and dynamic.

What is Kubot?

Evidently, production was challenged to make a better movie, taking everything to a higher level. Director Erik Matti promises the viewers a really exciting ride peppered with laughter from start to end. Matti was able to combine action, adventure and comedy in one spectacular movie!

Ayala Triangle Amazing Lights and Sound Show Photos

Last night, I decided to visit Ayala Triangle Gardens controversial lights and sound show (one of many special Christmas celebrations and events to be found around the metro) after dropping by my chopstick in her office in PBCom. Ayala Triangle Gardens is a few streets from PBCom so it's pretty near.

Good thing I decided to pay it a visit because it was worth it! I was amazed and I enjoyed every bit of my stay. I took some photos and I hope that it encourages you, yes! you to visit the Festival of Lights and Sound. 

Ayala Triangle Amazing Lights and Sound Show 2014 will run from November 12 to December 31, 2014.
