RABID

Rabid (2021)

Directed by: Erik Matti


4 short stories are put together into 1 anthology film. They said it’s all about the New Normal.


But honestly… it’s just a compilation of 4 random horror stories.


1. KAMI LANG BA ANG PWEDENG MALASIN?

- Ito ang sabi ng isang self-entitled na Kontrabida na walang ginawa kundi mang-inis ng mga bida dahil yun lang kasi ang purpose niya sa buhay.


2. IBA PA RIN ANG KARNE

- Dinaan na lang sa iyak at sa tula ang kawalan ng laman ng istorya.


3. SHIT HAPPENS

- Pinaglaruan nila ang tae. Hindi na mahalaga kung bakit at papano, basta ang mahalaga ay mag-mukha silang nakakadiri para kunwari nakakatakot.


4. HM?

- Anong halaga ng buhay mo? Sa apat na pelikula, ito ang pinaka-totoo. Ito ang nangyayari. Ito ang nakakatakot. Maganda na pinili nila ang Kare-kare para makuha ang panlasang Pinoy. Ngunit kulang pa sa sangkap para masabing sulit ito.


As a whole, the 4 short movies are all over the place. It keeps bombarding you with demonic twists and wrong turns present in every other horror movies.


The plot was ambitious, trying hard to look horrifying and edgy. There’s a chance for each story to grow and make sense. But the screenplay fails to keep everything grounded. It’s disorienting and messy.


There’s the constant presence of violence and extremity. Thus, naming this anthology film “Rabid”.


…Rabid that also sounds like Covid.

(and with a font that looks like Ratched)
