Watch the first five minutes of Netflix’s Philippine folklore anime Trese


Netflix has released the first five minutes of the upcoming anime series It shakes, which is based on the Philippine horror comic of the same name. In the clip (which I’ve included at the top of this post), you’ll get a close look at some of the show’s terrifying monsters and be introduced to Detective Alexandra Trese, the show’s protagonist.

Here is the official synopsis of It shakes, from Netflix:

Alexandra Trese is set in Manila, where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding among people.

Find me intrigued. The monsters seem pretty scary, and I love the supernatural elements hinted at even in these opening minutes.

If you are interested in a different view of It shakes before it premieres watch this trailer, from May:

And you don’t have to wait long to see the show for yourself: It shakes will begin streaming in the US on June 10 at noon ET.
