Movie Ads: "Impakto" (1996)

Impakto, a horror movie produced by Regal Films, opened in theaters on January 18, 1996. The cast is lead by Gelli De Belen, under the direction of Don Escudero. Other cast members include Daria Ramirez, Cherry Pie Picache, Ernie Zarate, Rochelle Barrameda, Candy Pangilinan and Antonio Aquitania.

The titular creature looks similar to a tiyanak (changeling). According to Jose Juan Paraiso's The Balete Book: A Collection of Demons, Monsters and Dwarfs from the Philippine Lower Mythology, the tiyanak usually assumes the form of a newborn baby and cries like one in the jungle to attract unwary travelers. Once it is picked up by the victim, the tiyanak reverts to its true form and attacks the victim.

Gelli's sister, Janice, led the cast of the 1988 Regal horror movie Tiyanak.
