This amazing gorefest was the first horror film ever screened at the Sundance Film Festival, where it caused a sensation in 1994. Aswang was immediately picked up for US distribution, retitled The Unearthling and cut for an 'R' rating. After a brief theatrical release, nervous video chains refused to carry the film, and the shocker all but disappeared.

This widescreen presentation is the first ever release of the unrated directors' cut.

A pregnant girl enters into a strange pact, agreeing to play the part of someone else's wife. She is taken to a huge, isolated estate to give birth.

What happens next will haunt your nightmares for years...
