(as-wong)n. Filipino vampire that feeds on the unborn
This is a splendidly creepy low-budget horror flick. Ten times more dark, vicious, and original than any current American horror.
It really is a gruesomely refreshing twist on the vampire genre. These bloodsuckers have a relentless craving to suck the infants from the mother’s womb, just before birth.
The acting might be sub-par, the camera work is slightly dark, and the budget is small. But the creative spark flourishes and several moments are shocking. Plus it avoids most stereotypical developments that placate most every scene of those big budget flicks.
All in all, a slightly flawed but gripping tale of pure evil. Independent horror at its most wicked.
