Episode 069: Matthew Abaya - The Dead Are Rising
June 6, 2017•47 min
You may recall this week’s guest from episodes 49 and 50 of Uncontained featuring The Haunted Bay. I met with director, writer and actor, Matthew Abaya, in the San Francisco Mission district to talk about his new movie, Vampariah. Vampariah is a story about Filipino vampires known as the “Aswang” pronounced “ah swan.” We talk about the making of the film and why he brought the Aswang to American cinema.
Matthew has won many awards at film festivals including best picture, best visual effects, and numerous Golden Steak awards. They even took home a Golden Steak award home from Transylvania, the land where all the Vampire lore started. Support the film by requesting for Vampariah to be on Netflix: https://help.netflix.com/en/titlerequest
