“Who’s in charge of patient 12?” I asked as I raided the clerks’ callroom.
“Nasa ward po. Yung kamuka ni Jestoni Alarcon,” the clerkies said in unison. I ran to the ward and saw Jestoni Alarcon in the flesh taking a patient’s blood pressure and in my head someone chanted high-pitchedly: Huwag mong buhayin ang bangkaaaaay!!!!
And just a few minutes ago, Marth V. has so astutely pointed out that Tits’ Toys R’ Us facial scar prop looks like something out of “Huwag Mong Buhayin ang Bangkay!” Truly these are signs that the movie should have a sequel. Or a prequel. Or a TV series version. Or a musical play. For the uninitiated HMBAB is an 80’s movie starring Jestoni Alarcon as a bangkay and Charito Solis as the mother is told not to make buhay the bangkay. I’ve only seen the trailers back then which scared the crap out of me, with JA in the coffin and CS doing some ritual in the church and someone in the background repeatedly screaming high-pitchedly: Huwag mong buhayin ang bangkay!!!! Huwag mong buhayin ang bangkay!!! Huwag mong buhayin ang bangkay!!! HUWAG MONG BUHAYIN ANG BANGKAAAAAY!!! and so on throughout the entire trailer, that you just want to say, OO NA! HINDI NA!
Of course the bangkay was risen back to life or there wouldn’t be any movie.

  1. I so LOL-ed at this because just a few days ago, my husband, Bong, was singing HMBAB knowing how I hate it. I never really got to watch the darn movie because I just think it's stupid. (yeah, go on, tell me it's a classic Filipino movie.)But you are just as bad as my husband because you know at least the characters. I don't. hahaha!


  2. hahahaha was looking for a trailer in youtube, and discovered that someone uploaded the entire movie ahahhaaha
