MOVIE REVIEW: ANG MANANANGGAL SA UNIT 23B (Prime Cruz, 2016)

B8A2D10B-4776-4953-B4B9-115272EA1944

SPOILER ALERT!!

Ooh, Wong Kar-wai aesthetics set to a hipster soundtrack! Most visually-pleasing (that labia majora wings reveal was awesome!) among the three Prime Cruz films, but also my least favorite.

There wasn’t enough story to latch on to that I kept wondering if the chicken oil (?) she used to rub on her burning loins was stolen from Mang Inasal. I’m all for an interspecies love story so it was unfortunate that the movie ended just when it was actually getting better.

Rating: ‪★★☆☆☆
