Halloween is coming up and in the late 90s, Magandang Gabi Bayan usually feature an episode that involves true to life horror stories and experiences around the Philippines. I am not sure if most of them are true but most of the storytellers are real people so I am guessing some of it may be true. Anyway, My friends and I usually make a big deal about watching this episode because it is a pretty good scare. Unfortunately though, Magandang Gabi Bayan is off the air now and I am feeling kind of nostalgic about their horror episode. lol.

To tell frankly I am not avid viewers of magandang gabi bayan. Because I am watching only on GMA TV. I don't believe on what telecast under former vice Noli De Castro. I don't know those are only a kind of camera trick...

Yes i really missed that yearly episode of MGB. All of the segments there are creepy and the effects seems really true. and I always love to watch it with the all the lights out and be with my small cousins before just like my young age. There have been lots of programs that replaced MGB for that kind of episodes during the Halloween. But still, it can never replace the original one which really made its mark (or trademark) to the minds of the people. Both young and old.

Definitely, even if I'm scared o ghost stories and paranormal activities I still watch it. Its way better than horror films I'd watched since its real. I missed the show so much since there is no other Holloween episode like the Magandang Gabi Bayan even the Rated K Halloween special is not comparable to Noli de Castro's show.

I definitely miss it, I grew up watching Magandang Gabi Bayan every Saturday night. I got scared hearing their stories and watching re-enactment, I even dream about it. That's the first thing comes in my mind whenever Halloween comes, I am not sure if all the story is true but they are really scary to hear.

I remember, me and my cousins were always anticipating Magandang Gabi Bayan's halloween episode when we're still young then after watching it, we're all scared to sleep alone and go to the bathroom at night. Sometimes, I even get nightmares because of that and my mother will not allow me to watch any horror episodes or movies again.

Yes I do. Every halloween special, me and my family watches the show and since I do believe in such ghosts, I can sometimes relate to the story...

I miss the old days, this used to be our family's favourite episode of MGB and I would love to see some of it again. Okatokat was also a good scare. Although, I think it wasn't as good as MGB's. :) Very nice discussion.

I super miss this. I usually regret watching the episode afterwards... I couldn't sleep with the lights out. :p I wish they brought it back. Even if it were just one off episodes --- halloween specials or something. I do have a few background info about some of the episodes (I used to be a photojournalist and some of the crew who filmed some of the episodes were on the same beat as I was) but I'd rather not spill the beans and ruin 'em for you guys. The important thing is we all got a good scare. I really really hope they bring it back. :)

I love horror movies and scenes or as long as monsters, demons, and ugly creations involve that would make me eager to watch over and over again. That is why I also missed the Magandang Gabi Bayan episode of Halloween.They have the magnificent effects and backgrounds that turns stories like real. All Souls Day where nearly come and I can't wait anymore watching horror movies on that time.

at first i was thinking, what was that all about. just reading the title makes me understand that i know this but could not remember. then i realize that it was the show of kabayan noli de castro. yes i miss that episode where it was about souls, killings, witch crafts and other things that would give you goose bumps. i wish they will give a special this one just for this halloween season.

As a kid, I used to be really scared on those episodes! Especially the episode about the black lady! I don't even wanna think about it! lol. But do I miss it? Not really! I'd rather watch funny scary movies, I hate watching horror flicks now.

I do miss MGB because the show was really informative and a very good gathered reports from people's experience. I used to remember when its MGB's Halloween episode, my colleagues and I would really wait to see it on television and spook each other. It is no other kind of program that gives the thrill and I like how they present the stories to viewers. I like how ex-VP Noli de Castro hosted the show and it was really his trademark whenever he speaks "Magandang Gabi Bayan!".

Yep super miss it! Even I'm so young way back then, I can still remember some of it's goosebumps episodes. Together with my siblings we gather in front of tv and scare our self to the max. Magandang Gabi Bayan has done great job and collecting these very scary stories.

Oh, i miss it too. Everytime halloween is coming we always remember to have the show be part of our topics. The show really gives me goose bumps and can't sleep at night after watching it. Would really sleep with my hands on my elder sisters arms to make sure she doesn't leave me alone..haha. well i little way back when the show was still running. I do hope they get to have it back or if not the entire show but more or less the same concept as those halloween episodes.
