Director: Khavn De La Cruz
Theme: Gender & Sexuality
The graphic violence is filmed in black and white, appropriate to both film noir and the pseudo-snuff film. There are monologues by the detective and the killer, but the only female to speak is the abusive mother. The victims endure a disturbing range of mutilations and abuse, though there is little female nudity. Viewers should be warned that there is male nudity, sodomy, fellatio, and a range of profanations of crucifixes and other religious images. Not a Twilight –style vampire movie, it includes garlic necklaces, drinking blood and devouring viscera, but the aswang creates no new vampires. Khavn De La Cruz’s latest pushing of digital boundaries is not for the faint of heart.
