HBO to Premiere Horror Anthology Show, FOLKLORE

A new horror anthology show called Folklore will premiere February 1 on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Folklore is a six-episode, hour-long series that takes place across six Asian countries - Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.

Each episode of Folklore is based on the respective country's myths and folklore, featuring supernatural beings and occult beliefs. Each story was also filmed in the local language of the country overseen by different directors.

Episodes include the Indonesia-set "A Mother's Love" about a single mother and her young son who discover a group of dirty and underfed children living in a mansion's attic and a tale from Malaysia called "Toyol" in which a Member of Parliament turns to a mysterious woman who possesses shamanistic powers in order to salvage his town's dire economic situation.
