ABOUT HBO ASIA'S FOLKLORE

Folklore is HBO Asia’s first horror anthology series created by Singaporean director, Eric Khoo. It features the deeply-rooted superstitions and myths across six Asian countries, including Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, with each episode helmed by a director from a different Asian country.

ABOUT A FEAR OF MONSTERS

Monsters have entertained and united us through our fear – from the genre defining Orang Minyak to the enduring image of Godzilla tearing through the streets of Tokyo – A Fear of Monsters explores the monsters that have traversed folklores and popular culture to the silver screen.

Featuring Asian horror films from the 1950s – 2000s, this programme is a cinematic continuation of AFA’s exhibition, State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
