SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL EXTREME on Netflix is a horror anthology from the Philippines. There are three stories in this one and they are wildly different, so there’s a chance you’ll find something you like. I did. Read our full Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme movie review here!

SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL EXTREME is now on Netflix and this horror anthology franchise truly is an institution in the Philippines. This is the sixteenth installment of the anthology that began in 1984. In other words, it can celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. Only very few horror franchises from anywhere in the world last that long.

The runtime of this horror anthology is 2 hours and 28 minutes, which is very long. However, it’s divided into three completely separate stories. If you start watching one and it doesn’t work for you, you can fast-forward to the next one. Personally, I preferred the second one as it was a horror-comedy and just worked for me.

The three stories of the horror anthology

As already mentioned, there are three stories in the Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme horror anthology, and I definitely found my favorite. However, I also recognize that a quick look at a few user reviews revealed that favorites differ wildly. Some hated my personal favorite and loved the one I loathed. Others liked them all or none of them.

Basically, you’ll just have to give them a shot and see what you like. As with most horror anthologies, I suppose. And actually, the V/H/S franchise is a fairly good comparison to this one from the Philippines. The one main difference is that Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme doesn’t have a wrap-around story.

You just get three separate horror movies with runtimes of around 45 minutes, so let’s get to them.

“Glitch” is the first story

In this first story of Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme, we meet Ingrid (Iza Calzado). She is a single mother living in a nice house and working for a fashion designer. She’s so busy that she doesn’t have much time for her two children, so she just buys them stuff.

Her eldest son, Patrick (Miggs Cuaderno) is a rebellious teenager and her 6-year-old daughter Lyka (Jewel Milag) just wants her iPad. And then she befriends a new toy, Gary the Goat. He’s a character from the children’s show in the 70s, and the episode actually begins in California in 1993, where we also see Gary the Goat. So we know where it’s heading!

It will get bloody, and despite using some practical effects (and a relatively minimal amount of CGI) I wasn’t a happy horror camper.

Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme (2023) – Review | Netflix Horror Anthology

“Mukbang” is the second story and my favorite

In Mukbang, we meet a group of influencers (Jane Oineza, RK Bagatsing, AC Bonifacio, Ninong Ry, Phi Palmos, and Esnyr Ranollo) as they travel to a luxurious mansion for an event. One that includes eating a lot of food while filming themselves for their various channels.

After all, the title of this episode is the name of a niche of videos where people consume vast amounts of food while interacting with the audience.


The word mukbang is a sort of hybrid word. It comes from combining the Korean word for “eating” (mugneun) with the word for “broadcast” or “show” (bangsong) resulting in MukBang. The combination essentially then becomes “eatshow” which is exactly what Mukbang is.

However, they won’t be eating what they usually do as they’re joined by two new influencers (Paul Salas and Elle Villanueva) who are… different. They are shape-shifters with a taste for human flesh and blood.

I always like horror comedies that use practical effects and get kitsch and campy. The Mukbang segment of Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme delivers on both, so I was entertained. It could’ve been better, but it’s still very much worth watching for anyone who likes over-the-top horror comedy.

Our rating: 3/5

“Rage” is the final (and most brutal) story

When a meteor shower results in strange rocks landing in a village, it has an immediate effect on those who come into contact with them. A group of graduated college students (Jane De Leon, Paolo Gumabao, Rob Gomez, Dustin Yu, and Mika Reins) have traveled from the university in Manila. This will be the last thing many of them do!

The celestial rocks from the meteor shower carry a virus that spreads an outbreak of infectious rage.

A comparison to the horror movie The Sadness is very easy to make, but unfortunately, Rage never really comes close to it in terms of quality. The budget and production quality are details, but the story just isn’t strong enough.

If you do like the Rage segment of Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme, then you have a true horror treat in store with The Sadness (2021) from Taiwan. It’s absolutely brutal and crazy but in all the right ways!

Our rating: 2/5

Watch Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme on Netflix now!

As already mentioned, Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme is the sixteenth installment of the Shake, Rattle & Roll horror anthology. However, this is also the first one released in 9 years, so maybe a break was needed. Just as was the case with V/H/S, you will have installments and even whole anthologies that you prefer.

This is the first Shake, Rattle & Roll horror anthology I’ve watched so I can’t compare it to any of its predecessors. However, I did enjoy parts of this one, so I can see the appeal.

Also, as you may know, if you’ve watched other productions from the Philippines, they speak a lot of English as an integrated part of communication. Tagalog and Filipino are spoken as well. Also, the language is heavily influenced by Spanish, so if you speak English and have some knowledge of Spanish, you can keep up for the most part.

Still, you will need subtitles. Especially due to most characters switching a lot between languages. As many bi- or multilingual speakers tend to do.

Shake, Rattle & Roll Extreme is on Netflix from March 1, 2024.

In this spine-chilling anthology, unsuspecting victims encounter surreal monsters, a lethal kids show and a zombie apocalypse.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
