Lastikman (Werewolf Transformations)

Lastikman is a Filipino superhero, and has been the subject of several Pinoy movies. The 2004 film stars John Estrada and Danilo Barrios as a father and son werewolf team (or as they're called in the movie "Taong Aso"). The transformation effects are computer generated but not as dire as one might expect, and Danilo is pretty easy on the eyes. Then again, I happen to think Filipinos are among the cutest men on earth, so I'm hardly an objective source...

The specially-edited clip below (forgive the brief visual glitches at the beginning and around the middle) includes the father and son transforming at the same time (through the magic of intercutting) and then shows the father and son returning to human form separately (and much later on in the film). Incidentally, if you happen to know of any other Filipino movies or TV shows involving handsome fellas getting beastly, do let me know...
