The Tales of Granny Basyang
5 February 2007 | by newton20032004See all my reviews

I first saw the movie when I was still a kid and I appreciated this movie a lot.

Chichay plays Lola Basyang, in the movie. This embarks a milestone in her career because the character has always been attached to her name since her portrayal of the popular Filipino storyteller icon.

This movie brings to life the timeless stories of Lola Basyang, an original komiks series (by Severino Reyes). It was actually the second Lola Basyang movie, the first was 1958. It is a trilogy, composed of three different stories/episodes as opposed to the 1958 movie which is a twin-bill. It top-bills three of the hottest love-teams in Philippine cinema of that circa.

The first story is entitled "Nahihimbing na Kagandahan" (Sleeping Beauty) which is inspired by the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. Gabby Concepcion and Snooky Serna makes a lovely pair. I was just kind of disappointed because Severino Reyes had created 500+ Lola Basyang stories, yet the story they chose for the movie is very unoriginal and is a total rip off of the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty.

The second story is a horror-comedy flick entitled "Zombie". It starred the love-team of Maricel Soriano and William Martinez with Manilyn Reynes. The three, gets lost while en route to a camping trip. The three enters a haunted house where they will meet a family of zombies.

The third episode is a semi-musical "Kerubin". It is about a group of child laborers working for three mean old ladies in a doll factory headed by Bella Flores, and how Kerubin (Chuckie Dreyfuss), an angel sent by God to free these kids from the clutches of evil. Nora Aunor stars as the niece of the mean old ladies, who happens to be the good one which helps the kids out of the factory. Sheryl Cruz and Tina Paner were also in the cast.

This movie is certainly a treasure and each kid will surely enjoy it.
