Mein gott!!! There's going to be a new ZUMA sequel this year called THE RETURN OF ZUMA (aka Ang Pagbablik Ni Zuma)!!! Who wouldda thunk that!!!???
Of course, there's a good chance a few of you don't even know the original film ZUMA which came out way back in 1985. And very briefly (veeery briefly); It's about this green dude who has snakes coming out of him and who fucks up people and stuff (see the clip). It's not necessarily the best film ever made but the character is so weird and different from any other horror movies that alone makes it worthwile. Uh, did I mention it's ever only been available on VHS in Japan. In Filipino language with Japanese subs.

The only English "version" that exists is an English dubbed trailer for the film which, incidentally, is on the Japanese ZIMATAR tape (Zuma contains for trailer for Zimatar). There is also a sequel entitled ANAK NI ZUMA (aka Zuma 2: Hell Serpent) from '87. You can get it on VCD from online stores in the Philippines.

yes, the writing is in English on the VCD cover although the film is in Tagalog and doesn't have English subtitles. No, I don't get it either, LOL
