Gagamboy is a Filipino science fiction film made in 2004 directed by Erik Matti and starring Vhong Navarro. It is of the same ilk as the "Spider-Man" films, with a mutated spider that causes Gamaboy to gain his superpowers.

Plot

It is about two ice cream vendors who we're demoted to warehouse guards. Junie (Vhong Navarro), swallowed a spider in the warehouse and became "Gagamboy," or "Spider-Kid." The other man Dodoy, swallowed a roach in the warehouse and became "Ipisman," or "Roach-Man." Both confront each other at the middle and the end of the movie; While their alter-egos Junie and Dodoy are in love with the same girl (Aubrey Miles), and will do anything to get her.
