Her origins are as dark and mysterious as she is…. A legend almost as old as time… But, here, in the region of Ligao, she will become uncovered, and her reign of terror is unleashed upon new prey as she sets forth to bring blood into the kingdom for her Master.

A group of friends are on vacation at a nearby river. Dancing, celebrating the end of the school year, when she strikes, leaving terror in her wake.

She is human, yet a creature of the darkness. She is intelligent but vicious. Stalking her prey until each one of the group has become her own.

She is…. The Manananggal.

The short film from ASJ Publishing commences filming in September, with a release date of 2019.
