If there are few of the flicks and official entries in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2014 that moviegoers shouldn’t miss—it is ‘Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles 2’ co-produced by Reality Entertainment with AgostoDos Pictures, and released by GMA Films.
Opening on Christmas Day, the original cast led by Kapuso actor—Dingdong Dantes with Joey Marquez as well as Ramon Bautista (assuming another character after being axed in the first installment of the film) are all back in the sequel of this ‘aswang’ serialized flick.
Director Erik Matti promised its audiences to have a more action-packed horror flick as its setting comes to a classic Manila. Matti co-wrote the continuing adventures of Makoy (which would remind us of a ‘Harry Potter-type of mystique’ character) with Michiko Yamamoto. And for most films with sequels, it is expected and predicted to be better than the first one.
Dantes, Marquez and Bautista are joined by Isabelle Daza, KC Montero, Elizabeth Oropesa, Lotlot de Leon, Jun Sabayton, and Abra debuting in this film.
In terms of production values, according to Matti, ‘Kubot’ is five times more as compared to its first part. Though, it had created quite a ‘stir’ on its shooting issues due to a particular former cast member, whom the director was compelled to find a replacement in order to finish the filming–it still hasn’t lost its continuity-factor.
Based on its teaser—it has enough stuff that would intrigue moviegoers to catch up during the holidays. ‘Kubot’ might be the right vehicle to redeem GMA-7’s flopped venture after that bad film titled ‘Overtime’.
