4.0 out of 5 stars Like fun?! October 2, 2003
By A Customer
On a whim, I picked up this DVD from directors Wye Martin (who?) and Barry Polterman (who?). I haven't gotten that lucky since scoring a prom date with the head cheerleader! (I didn't actually score a prom date with her, I use that as an example of "luckiness".) Anyways, the movie is a good, old fashioned romp of the horror kind! Like many of the classics, you have extreme moodiness balanced against brief scenes of gore. Plus, vampires that eat unborn babies! What more could you want?! If you're in the mood for fresh horror fun, check out "Aswang". And then watch the documentary and extras - those directors were nutty, man! You get the feeling making the movie was quick and cheap, and that the group involved made friends and enemies. Quite a soap opera behind the scenes of a horror shoot. Somebody should make that into a reality show. (Don't use that, Hollywood big-wigs! It's mine.) Oh, and stellar performance from Tina (the lead whose last name I can't remember). Perfect pitch for horror heroine. Recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unique film starts good, but takes easy way out March 29, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Aswang is a truly unique and deliciously revolting horror movie that is able to stand on its own merits pertaining to the Philippine folklore. Unfortunately the makers decide to fall back on familiar B-movie territory that causes the movie to fall flat.

Frank Anderson is credited with the Aswang story and scenes of his influence is evident, if you're familiar with the Aswang M.O. When the doctor is walking in the woods and hears the heavy sporadic breathing, that is an experience I've heard confirmed by people in the provinces of the Philippines. Attacking from the roof is classic aswang. When Aswang sticks to its source material, it's pretty good. There's even a sizable amount of Tagalog spoken, some with subtitles and some without. When it falls back on and references the Evil Dead, chainsaws, Rosemary's baby and others, it loses its luster and tension. While these references may be fun to recognize for the horror fan, it sort of dowses the unique vibe Aswang had going.

I was disappointed in the tongue, which is one of the most defining characateristics of the aswang. While almost all references I've read and heard describes the tongue as "thread-like" the movie opts for a tongue that's as thick as a garden hose. It's nonetheless amusing and I would've opted for more tongue "so to speak" than the chainsaws. The acting particularly by stars Norman Moses and Tina Ona Paukstelis is very credible considering the overall production values.

The whole baby or fetus eating aspect is the most horrifying, intriguing and revolting aspect, particularly since it sucks the fetus out the womb.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars April 17, 2005
Well I give this movie 3 andf a half stars. First off it is a low budget movie for those who dont know. That for sure dont bother me especially in this case. On occasion it has the look and feel of a movie from the late 70's which is awesome. This movie is about Vampires , well phillipino vampires. It is very original, the acting on occasion is kind of cheesy, but what would you expect from a "b" movie. The originality was there, the acting was decent a majority of the time, the gore was there enough to satisy anyone as I love a good gory movie and i was pleased they ddint over due it as some movies do. the directors were creative and I feel did an excellent job.

I dont reccomend this movie to people who are fand of movies such as " Scream " , " Jeepers Creepers " or " I know what you did last summer " or those type of movies. This movie has the feel of an older 70's movie at times as I stated. Being a fan of horror movie from the 70's and 80's , I can appreciate a movie such as this. The idea and originality and I feel the creativeness was excellent any real horror fan I think would be satisfied and think it was a pretty solid movie. I had brought this movie from Best Buy for $14.99, took a shot on it didnt look at reveiews or anything just brought it, I just had a feeling and I was right. Im glad I didnt go buy all of these negative reviews i read on here. TO ME it was worth the money and i was satisfied ,as we all have different taste alot of you may think its a waste. But i would also assume that if people who watch this movie like the same type of movies as i do, whcih a majority of some of my favorite movies i gave reviews on here at amazon, then they should be satisified. Other words for all you kiddies who think you know what a good horror movie is but you really dont , I wouldnt advise you get thios I doubt you will be happy. Thats IMO.

Couldn't get enough! Finally unrated! Uncut! (except by the editor)! This one is a real buying opportunity - the extras was like a low-budget film school. Thanks!
