Synopsis: Alma Moreno plays the aswang sowing terror to the residents of the remote barrio of Talisay. Catlyn (Aiza Seguerra) and her yaya Veron (Manilyn Reynes) witness the murder of Catlyn's mother. With the killers pursuing them, the family driver Dudoy (Berting Labra) brings them to the countryside to hide. In the midst of their journey, they encounter strange and brutal murders only to find out that the barrio is being terrorized and attacked by an aswang who, by day, turns into a lovely maiden. They then wage a fight against the evil creature while neutralizing their pursuers.

Aswang is one very odd film.
I've seen a number of Asian Cat III flicks that were brutal, yet had some rather oddly (To this American) placed bits of humor, but nothing quite like this. It's like they took a family-rated, low budget kids "mystery" flick, complete with the goofiest-looking Z-budget monster you ever saw, added some silly juvenile humor bits and some elements of "Home Alone", and then tossed in some cold-blooded brutal murders and bloody gore.
Like I said... weird.
And long. For all it's faults, and there are many, the biggest problem with this film is it's length. Over 120 minutes long, there's really only about 80 minutes, max, of story here. That makes for a lot of loooooonnngggg booooorrrrring stretches.
Just don't be fooled by the first 20, which is where most of the action takes place. It leaves you thinking, "wow, this flick is crazy but interesting" but then it tails off for the next hour and a half, only picking up a bit of steam towards the end.
Oh yeah, there's a cute-as-a-bug little girl with glasses who's one of those Hollywood precocious-smarter-than-the-adults types, who NEVER listens when told something and constantly puts herself and others in grave danger with her antics. By about the third time of that, I truly want her to get a real butt whipping or something. Very annoying character.
Recommended only for the odd mix of family type kiddie humor, bloody gore, and murder. Other than that, avoid at all costs.
