Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles, The BlogCon Experience

Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles is the sequel of Tiktik which picks up where it ended in a place called Pulupandan. It is where the whole massacre happened.

Aside from being part of a franchise, Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles also marks the comeback of GMA Films, being one of the film’s co-producers with Reality Entertainment and Agosto Dos. The franchise is formally inked with the momentous contract signing of the entities.
Kubot, not only being an unknown term for Kwento Ni Toto, it is also the first time that we managed to hear this kind of aswang (monsters). We’ve read a lot of names of aswang from different regions but this is the first time we’ve heard of this name and according to director Erik Matti kubot are mainly women which features their long hairs and whose abilities are more limited to morphing its hair into a tentacle-like mass, which they use to squeeze their victim’s innards out like gel. It gory enough to think of it but it is the local folklore.
According to director, Erik Matti, they have already conceptualized the story up to next sequel that’s why he needs to co-write with the writers just to make the story goes where he wanted it to go as a director. Just as always, direct to the point Erik Matti made every see through what he wanted to share and what he wanted for the movie viewers expects to see.

The story of Kubot happens two years after that whole tragedy in Pulupandan and is set in Manila. Macoy, the main character played by Dingdong Dantes just wants peace and quiet, not realizing that the aswang clans have a brewing problem. This time, Macoy will be fighting Doms, the character interestingly played by KC Montero. The main Kubot is played by Elizabeth Oropesa.

Present during the blog conference were Dingdong Dantes, Julie Ann San Jose, Ramon Bautista, Jun Sabayton, Abra, Hannah Ledesma and of course the director himself, Erik Matti. They were all set in the mood to receive whatever questions the bloggers will shoot to them.

New additions in the cast include Isabelle Daza, Lotlot De Leon, Bogart the Explorer, Julie Ann San Jose and Abra. From the original cast, Joey Marquez and Ramon Bautista resurfaces as a different character. Introducing in the film in a special role is Hanna Ledesma.

If you’ve enjoyed watching the first part which is Tiktik, then you’ll definitely take on this next one. It’s a package of horror, comedy and action in just one movie.
