And finally, Philippine Halloween feels right again. The much-awaited Magandang Gabi Bayan Kababalaghan Special is airing on Sunday, October 30 at 3:30 p.m.
ABS-CBN aired the teasers to the special on Tuesday, October 25 to everybody’s delight.
In case you aren’t aware, in the Philippines, Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without the Kababalaghan Special of Saturday news magazine program, Magandang Gabi Bayan.
The tradition grew in the 90s, when Kabayan Noli de Castro would tell horrific true-to-life tales of demons, ghosts, and elementals, complete with witnesses and victims from all over the Philippines.
Boy, was that a trip!
And then it stopped. Viewers either outgrew it or snapped out of its spell. Whatever it was, the special just feel like a special in the oughties.
An observation we can’t say about this year’s edition. Seeing the trailer on TV got us pretty darn excited. Watch it below!
The Magandang Gabi Bayan Kababalaghan Special will air on Sunday, October 30 at 3:30 p.m. It will have a rereun on the same day as ABS-CBN’s Sunday Best after Gandang Gabi Vice.
