“Yung scene lang na kinakausap ni Ramon Bautista yung aswang na wag syang kainin, yun pa lang worth P200 na (ticket price)”. Matti said.

Kubot  will start where the Tiktik ended at a place called Pulupandan, and from there Macoy (Dantes) move to Manila and the Kubot followed him. Kubot in Philippine Folklore is a clan of long haired female aswangs married to the Tiktik. Kubot have the abilities to morphine their hair like tentacle and squeeze their victims.  


Playing the main Kubot si Elizabeth Oropesa, in which according to Matti is very much perfect for the role because of her Pinay exotic look and expressive eyes. He also point out that Jun Sabayton is someone to look forward in the movie due to his prowess in acting, along with Lotlot De Leon who’s role in the film is very much to her image on screen. 
 Other cast in Kubot are Isabelle Daza, Bogart the explorer, Julie Ann San Jose, rapper Abra, and from the original cast is Joey Marquez and Bautista.  But Matti insist that it is not a horror film, rather it’s a action adventure type of movie.  “Its story is worth to follow, maganda ang tahi ng kuwento, worth pam-pasko.” Matti said.

Setting of the film is shot mostly in unexplored part of Binondo in Manila, wherein a lot of special effects and action sequences will happen. Dantes also declare that his movie is something Filipino should be proud of, it’s something they have to see in theaters to know why.

Kubot is also an attraction in Enchanted Kingdom, a theme park in Sta.Rosa, Laguna.
