Director Dale Fabrigar told me about a creature in Filipino folklore called an Aswang. I'd never heard of it, but research revealed a fascinating entity that shared traits with a vampire. In other words, a perfect candidate for the horror anthology TV series that he and Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions were producing to pitch to Netflix and other streaming services.
The story setup is simple: A young mother receives a mysterious package in the middle of the night, and her curiosity unleashes a chain of events that threaten her life and her baby forever.
As it happens, Dale and I have since developed a fair amount of material about this entity to continue honoring his Filipino traditions, including a feature screenplay that we're currently shopping around.
