Tiktiks: Vampire Werewolf Thingamajigs

Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles

Dang gosh flippin’ heck. I went out and learned Chinese so that I could watch the new foreign horror movie Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, only to find out the ding dong thing is in Filipino. Double crap! Now I’m speaking at a college level in Chinese and don’t know where to use it. Somebody please tell me there’s a Chinese strip club around here.

Aswangs, as you know, are mythical creatures from Philippine folklore, reputed to be either a vampire, werewolf, or a yoghurt-smooth mixture of both. In Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles, these vampwolf thingamajigs attack a house out in the woods (Dog Soldiers, cough), where a drunk (I can relate), his wife (he’d be better off alone with a sixer of the good stuff) and some other people who will provide sustenance for the Tiktiks during the course of the movie, which releases October 2012 if you give a tik.

The freakin’ irony of all this is now I know how to say “Tiktik” in Chinese. God hates me, I just know it.
