If you're old enough to remember Undas and Halloween in the 90s, then you’ve probably looked forward to the yearly Gabi ng Kababalaghan specials of Noli de Castro’s Magandang Gabi, Bayan. Full of creepy stories of white ladies and aswangs that come complete with cheesy (but effective) dramatizations, watching these episodes have become a well-missed tradition of many families.
The good news is that Noli de Castro will be back this year for Kababalghan, a reprisal of the beloved MGB specials, on October 30 at 3:30pm with a replay in the evening.
To prep you for the upcoming scares, we’ve rounded up the best stories of MGB’s past Undas episodes. Just make sure to watch them with a friend!
