The brainchild of Eric Khoo, FOLKLORE reinvents six distinct and haunting tales that have lingered on through generations of regional superstitions across Asia. From a menacing child spirit in Malaysia to a possessed tatami mattress in Japan, Folklore offers a chilling foray into Eastern mythologies of the occult and the supernatural.
Descend into the origins of fear as six acclaimed directors breathe new life into classic Asian ghost stories steeped in the histories and landscapes of their home countries. Enter the worlds they have left ajar, where the living are only half the story, and fear defines the folk.
