In the Philippines, there are
shape-shifting creatures known as aswang. Among
them, none are more feared than the manananggal, a
vile creature that rips itself in half as it takes
to the night to hunt for its favorite prey – the
unborn. To Alexander, his family on his mother’s

accompanying his mother on her trip home after the
