This time out, a look at another sweet, romantic comedy… with vampires… in Malaysia. Hehehe… just the kind of sweet, nutty horror/ comedy mash up that always makes your Favorite Catgirl Princess giggle and smile. I’m just a sucker for these things…. and this time it’s James Lee’s new Malay film, “Tolong! Awek Aku Pontianak!” aka “Help! My Girlfriend is a Vampire!”.
Our synopsis goes: “Tolong! Awek Aku Pontianak” follows the naive yet kind Bob (Zahiril Adzim) who moves to a new apartment in a run-down building after having his heart crushed by his longtime girlfriend Ina’s decision to break up with him. He and his friend settle in to their new home and then he meets and falls in love with a peculiar woman neighbor named Maya (Sazzy Falak). Maya, who lives alone with her sister (Liyana Jasmay), harbors a dread secret and many of the others around her are beginning to suspect, that despite her pretty face, modest and shy behavior, she just might just be a vampire….”
I know… I promised to get around to reviewing “13 Assassins” by now, but this cute lil’ movie came along, and charmed me with it’s Trailer, so how could I not give it a look? With it’s resemblance to the Philippine film “Ang Darling Kong Aswang”, which your Favorite Catgirl watched a while ago, I confess I was itching to see the Malay take on the forbidden romance between Mortal and Monster. Ahhh romance…. Isn’t it always sooo much better with a few creepy moments thrown in to spice things up? Let’s waste no more time…. “Read On”!!
