kubot aswang

Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles 2 is a 2014 pinoy horror movie with bits of comedy, action and adventure which is co-written and directed by Erik Matti. It is the sequel to the 2012 film Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles. The film stars Dingdong Dantes again as Makoy, Joey Marquez as Nestor, along with the new cast members Isabelle Daza, Lotlot de Leon (Nieves), KC Montero (Dom) and Elizabeth Oropesa (Veron). It is an official entry to the 40th Metro Manila Film Festival and was released on December 25, 2014 in Philippine cinemas.

After surviving the Tiktik's attack in Pulupandan, Makoy decided to return to Manila, along with Sonia (wife), Nestor, and other survivors. However, the Kubots (hairy bat-like creatures) ambushed them along the way, killing Sonia by sucking all her blood until body gives up. This is to avenge their relatives (Tiktik) who were killed by Makoy during the fight. Makoy also loses his right arm after being stuck in the stumbled bus and the worst is, Veron, leader of the Kubot's in vengeance, took his son.

Makoy had no choice but to continue living along with his wife’s parents. He was also experiencing bad dreams having his son held in custody by Veron which shattered him every time Veron turned into a scary haired creature. He is still hoping that he could see his son someday.

Nieves had worked as assistant of Dr. Lex whom she doesn’t know that this doctor also has Aswang race who is living in the city. They don’t eat human’s blood but only from animals (animal diet for Aswang). Nieves already had few suspicions regarding the doctor’s behavior at night but she has no strong evidence to support this.

One night, a man was admitted due to an unconditional illness which was due to eating chorizos and other processed meat from the market. These products were processed from human flesh as a way of spreading the disease to become one of the Kubots or Aswangs. The doctor already knew that this is not an ordinary illness but instead due to those products. Dr. Lex tried to fight it using a whip but it had gone worse and also the Aswang race has been alerted that someone is punishing their new member.

The doctor and Makoy met and they joined forces fighting the leader of the Kubots in the city who is Dom whom Veron is also under his leadership but later decided to punish her along with Makoy and family. Together they have escaped and fought Dom until his death. Later, Makoy and his son reunited but he already knew that his son was already turned into one of the Kubots.

The end is still yet to come since another Aswang leader also appeared planning to avenge Dom’s death from Makoy.
