I will let the images and the ‘uncensored’ full trailer of the movie speak for themselves. “Tiktik” – the Aswang Chronicles could be the most impressive Filipino horror flick ever produced. Aside from it being entirely shot against a green screen, the production people – led by Director Erik Matti – used the most advanced technology in filmmaking.
The movie that could set the tone for a new advent in Pinoy digital filmmaking.

Notice the look and texture of the movie. Impressive!
The eerieness is excellently captured in this shot alone.
Watch “Tiktik – the Aswang Chronicles – co produced by GMA Films, Agostodos Productions, Mothership and Reality Entertainment – and scheduled to open nationwide on October 17. The movie stars Dingdong Dantes, Lovi Poe, Joey Marquez, Ramon Bautista, Janice de Belen and LJ Reyes.
I love dogs. Whenever a movie revolves around one, I make an effort not to miss it. On Philippine TV, it’s rare to find a program that includes a canine character playing the title role, let alone a significant part. And GMA-7 is taking the risk of producing a primetime teleserye titled “Aso ni San Roque” (literally translated as ‘St. Roch’s Dog’) which stars child actress Mona Louise Rey along with Princess, a half-Cocker Spaniel half-Labrador Retriever, which used to be a bomb-sniffing dog before it was signed up by the network for the pivotal role of Anghel. You might remember the charming pooch sharing screen time with actor Eddie Garcia in the Cinemalaya indie favorite “Bwakaw“.

As for Mona Louise Rey, she is simply continuing her evolvement as a young actress-in-the-making. After proving her acting chops in “Munting Heredera” (Little Heiress) and “Luna Blanca” Book 1, she is now being challenged to play Fatima – a blind girl who was born to help stop the spread of evil gripping a fictional town. Together with her guardian dog and Mateo (the Chief of Police being played by TJ Trinidad), they should put their hands together to defeat the unrelenting forces of the dark.
“Aso ni San Roque” stars Mona Louise Rey, TJ Trinidad, LJ Reyes, Pen Medina, Gardo Verzosa, Paolo Contis, Angelika dela Cruz, Nova Villa, Rich Asuncion, Gwen Zamora, Buboy Garrovillo and Princess the dog. It will premiere tomorrow night on the second slot of GMA Telebabad which starts at around 8:45PM. 🙂
GMA-7's latest mid-afternoon teleserye premieres on May 30.

Jackie Rice gets the biggest break of her showbiz career as the lead star of "Sisid".
'Sisid' leads JC Tiuseco (L) and Jackie Rice
After quite a long wait, “Sisid
” (Dive) finally arrives on TV. This is GMA-7’s newest afternoon teleserye
that revolves around the life of deep-sea pearl divers with focus on Eden (Jackie Rice) and the men competing for her love and attention. This is one of the rare times that the network plunged (no pun intended) into the production of an afternoon sexy drama so it will require a bit more of parental guidance in watching.
After being named as one of Seattle's Best Coffee's Skinny Vanilla Ambassadors plus getting signed up as one of Regal's Desirable Men, JC Tiuseco will now play the male lead in GMA-7's "Sisid".
Playing the men in Eden’s life are JC Tiuseco (as Ahmed) and Dominic Roco (as Siegfried). This series is actually the biggest break so far for all three leads after paying their dues in strings of supporting roles in the past. Other members of the cast are Angelu de Leon, Ian Batherson, LJ Reyes, Rich Asuncion, Alicia Meyer, Daniel Fernando, Maricar de Mesa and Bembol Roco, with actor Ricky Davao directing this time around.
“Sisid” will start airing this coming Monday, May 30, during GMA-7’s Dramarama sa Hapon block.
