#halimawsabanga : one horror flick I can’t forget


My ever beloved friendship Raven reenacts his all-time favorite 1986 monster hit flick Halimaw Sa Banga (“monster in a jar” as directed by master director Mario O’ Hara). The Mother of all Pinoy monsters, Halimaw sa Banga have changed the way we look at antique jars. The film traumatized a lot of Pinoy kids the way “Freddie Krueger” and “Chuckie” of Child’s Play did to American audience.

Filipiknow.net wrote “The monster was actually an ancient witch who was killed, cursed and trapped inside the large jar a long time ago. From then on, every curious people who looks down inside the jar gets served as the monster’s dinner. Halimaw sa Banga is actually an episode of the two-part Halimaw film which won 3rd Best Picture award at MMFF. But thanks to its authentic scare tactics, this pale monster made it to Pinoy horror’s hall of fame (at least according to its trembling fans).
