I am feeling excited rather than scared to watch another groundbreaking horror film of the year -- TIKTIK: The Aswang Chronicles, acclaimed to be the first Filipino movie entirely shot on the green screen. Quite unfamiliar? Well the the film is actually created using Chroma key compositing or chroma keying, a special effect/post production technique which is used to remove the background of a certain video/photo to create the desired image. All the backdrop of the movie except the main actors, houses and vehicles were artificially created using the said technique combined with the most sophisticated technology in cinematography. Kindly see pictures below (for example):

Aswang, a make-believe vampire-like creature in Filipino folklore is very much popular in the Philippine archipelago with a wide range of regional names such as "Tik-tik", "wak-wak" and "soc-soc". This film acknowledged the existence of the most feared flesh-eating, blood-sucking mythical beasts camouflaged in human form. Watching the full teaser gives me the impression of a well-made film, horrifying yet with a certain twist of comical elements perfectly blend with its caricatural theatrical drama and emblazoned display of Filipinos' distinct customs.

TIKTIK: The Aswang Chronicles is directed by the award-winning Filipino director Eric Matti produced by Reality Entertainment in partnership with Agosto Dos and GMA Films. It is expected to hit the theaters nationwide on the 17th of October 2012 perfect for the creepy Halloween season.
