Batwoman and Robin meet the Queen of the Vampires is a 1972 Filipino action horror film directed by Tony Cayado (Kamay na gumagapang; Dracula Goes to R.P.; Living Dead) from a screenplay by Greg Macabenta.
Using behind-the-scenes footage, home movies and rare TV commercials and network promos, this video profiles Batman through the years from its beginnings as a comic book to the successful 1960s TV series.
Tiyo Paenguin, the name of Panchito's character in this film is not only a play on its alter-ego, Tiyo Paeng and Penguin, it is also a play on the word "Chupa", a Tagalog slang for blow-job. See more »
We see lots of superheroes singing and dancing including with villains and Spider-Man. See more »
Well for one thing, this movie is not weird. It has the Filipino blend of comedy. Meaning it would be wacky, tons of slapstick, hilarious dialogue and of course a song or dance scene. This spoof of the popular Batman and Robin characters never let me down for a knee slapper. The costumes are poor imitations from the old Batman television series.
Joey De Leon's antics as Batman and his real life son as Robin was nothing but classic Filipino comedy.
Joker was the best villain in the movie. The laugh of his was immortalized by the late Rene Requiestas. While Tiyo Paenguin was played by one of the Philippines' top comedians, Panchito. The tandem works well and the on screen performance is nothing but short of laughs.
However corny or cheesy the movie gets, Filipino's comedic innovation is at its worst and best.
