Fashion designer Iggy Moda (John Lapus) is planning to organize an event culminating Alegria Mall's Silver Anniversary. To make the mall's anniversary very special, Iggy conceptualizes fashion collection and mall's new logo, but at the same time, thinks of reviving the rumors about Alegria Mall's alleged half-human half-snake lurking somewhere deep in the mall which has been the reason of the disappearances of some shoppers.

Janitor Mang Banjo (Lou Veloso) takes his cleaning rounds to Sarah's chamber and is nervously cleaning the mess carefully without making any noise.

Alberto kept Sarah underneath the mall, in which he believes she can bring good luck to the family and the business. Sarah was fed at first with animals, until she tasted human blood when a construction worker fell down from the mall's basement down to the chamber. Sandra remembers visiting Sarah ever since their childhood until they said their goodbyes to each other. Alberto then plans to kill Sarah once and for all in order to make the problem stop. Meanwhile, Troy returns to his house and gets a knife, plotting revenge to kill Sarah before going back to the mall.

Meanwhile, Adam is killed and hanged by the creature's umbilical cord while Carlos fights himself with the creature with a gun and is killed by the baby creature. The creature attacks the flight deck and strangles the pilot. Karen, Bryan, Dave and the remaining passengers make a plan to safety as Tim and Bryan fly the plane after losing the pilots. Gino and Lovely discovers a bomb underneath the seats which is ready to detonate. On the contrary, Karen finds the child on the floor and picks it up, while Dave throws it away from her before it transforms again into a tiyanak. Karen, Dave, Gino and Lovely runs out to safety, but the creature traps Karen and Dave. Coincidentally, Iggy wakes up and is attacked by the creature.
After the flight lands safely, the creature attacks again and kills Lovely. Karen, Dave, Gino, Tim and Bryan escapes the plane as the bomb planted by the hijacker explodes, killing the creature.
