Sarah lucks into a sweet one-bedroom at Asilo Del Mar Apartments, she think she's hit the jackpot. Situated on a quiet street in Los Angeles, it's got plenty of space, friendly tenants, group BBQs and even a cute neighbour next door. But this being L.A., all is not what it seems: loud noises start keeping her awake at night; her cat is missing; everyone seems to be a little too helpful and friendly, except for the weirdo, Lester. Soon, Sarah learns she didn't choose this apartment — it chose her.
Why we're excited: We here at 22 Shots love apartment horror. We've all moved into a new place at least once in our lives, and chances are there are going to be some issues. Whether it be pesky neighbors, a loud environment or something more sinister. With this film, it sounds like you're in for a sinister surprise that'll keep you wondering what'll happen next. This isolated setting creates potential for great tension and an eerie atmosphere that will keep viewers invested throughout the entire ride.

William Zeil is returning to his old family farm that he inherited from his father after suffering a crippling bankruptcy. With him he brings his wife Sarah and their young adopted daughter, Mary, hoping for a fresh start. They soon meet Lazarus, an old farmhand who looked after William’s father, who takes an immediate, almost paternal liking to Mary. It becomes evident that the local tribal leader has a considerable problem with Lazarus, as do many in the community. On his end, Lazarus has no shortage of his own problems — his wife having died in childbirth, his daughter later perishing in a fire, he is tormented in this terrible place of wounding memories and unrestful souls. Lonely… but, as the Zeil family will soon discover, never alone.
Why we’re excited: Based on the synopsis, 8 sounds like a film that is oozing with atmosphere and unsettling imagery. It seems that it will have an artsy vibe that will lure people in with clever dialog and unnerving scenes.
Directed by: Arielle Dombasle
Trigger warning: delightful confusion. A crazy scientist is on a quest to create a new, immaculate, androgynous being. This transformation is only possible through the alchemy of two old souls: Dolorès (Arielle Dombasle), an avant-garde filmmaker, and her reincarnated lover Nicolas (Nicolas Ker), a confused rocker. The search won’t be easy, especially when so many odd and wild characters, among others the musician’s sister (Asia Argento) and an Egyptian god (Nouvelle Vague star Jean-Pierre Léaud), are thrown into this demented Platonistic disarray.
Why we’re excited: Any film with Asia Argento is a film worth seeing. Plus, it’s an alien flick. What’s not to like?
Directed by: Kim Yoon-seok
Adolescence is a trying period during which one must learn to cope with one’s own emotions while attempting to understand the world you’re about the enter. For 17-year-old Joo-ri, her mother’s psychological degeneration and father’s adulterous affair with a local restaurant owner serve to darken her already sombre mood. What’s worse, her classmate Yoon-ah is the daughter of said restauranteur, putting a strain on their relationship even though they’re both set on bringing this infatuation to an end. When Yoon-ah informs her that a child is forthcoming from their parents’ illicit union, the whole situation breaks down to the point of the girls fighting each other violently at school. However, this contemptuous animosity takes an unexpected turn when Yoon-ah’s mother gives birth prematurely to their little brother, whose life is in serious jeopardy.
Why we’re excited: This one seems to have an intriguing psychological aspect to it with many dynamics. Additionally, the film comes from South Korea, and Korean cinema rarely lets us down.
Directed by: Joe Begos
Dora Madison (DEXTER, THE LOFT) plays Dezzy, a talented young artist struggling with sobriety and a bad case of creative paralysis. But when a wild night with her friend Courtney (played by Tru Collins) spirals out of control, Dezzy wakes up changed. Now fuelled by insatiable hunger, Dezzy franticly chews — sometimes literally — through the underbelly of L.A. looking for answers. With her world spiraling out of control, she turns to her longtime dealer and friend Hadrian (played by festival favourite and regular Begos collaborator Graham Skipper of BEYOND THE GATES) to help curb her yearnings. She quickly realizes the fix she needs is not chemical but biological, and she dives headfirst to a neon-lit world of loud music, dark shadows and blood!
Why we’re excited: Vampire films are always intriguing. They can range from being slow-burn, atmospheric features to fast-paced gore-fests. In the case of Bliss, it sounds like you will be getting the latter. This film seems like it’ll offer an artsy perspective on the genre, while giving viewers there fair share of bloody, disturbing moments.
Directed by: Matthew Pope
A body lies bleeding on the ground in front of small-town garage owner Leigh Tiller (OZARK’s Bethany Anne Lind). The killing wasn’t planned, it was an accident, borne of self-defense. In a panic, she decides to conceal the crime. Soon after, she’s struggling with regrets. Not to do with her attacker’s death, but about the fact that her actions have condemned his family to a tortured life of not knowing what happened to him, consumed with trying to make sense of a sudden disappearance that can’t be explained. Leigh’s screaming conscience will lead her to make a series of decisions that put her and her son in mortal danger as she tries to keep her guilt hidden from her cop father (Will Patton) and the widow of the deceased (Elisabeth Rohm). Will she find a way that she can live with herself? Will she live at all?
Why we’re excited: We’ve all dealt with feelings of guilt for our actions. It can be for big things or little things. In this case, our main character is faced with the ultimate conflict that would eat away at anyone’s conscience if put in said situation. Blood on Her Name is horrific because it deals with an issue that could happen to anyone in real life, and watching a character face the guilt of her actions is enough to put any person the edge of their seat.
Directed by: Ant Timpson
Thirty-five-year-old Norval (Elijah Wood) journeys to the middle of nowhere to visit his father (Stephen McHattie) after receiving a letter begging him to come. Having not seen his dad since he was five, it’s all a little mysterious and vaguely emotional for him. He arrives at his father’s distinctly UFO-shaped home and almost immediately gets off on the wrong foot with him. Awkward un-pleasantries abound, and soon? Let’s just say, the unexpected happens. A number of times. Things proceed to get a little strange and a lot violent as Norval funds himself plunged into circumstances on the shiftier side of outright lunacy.
Why we’re excited: This film sounds like it could potentially be super bizarre, and we’re sure this is a role Elijah Wood will kill.
Directed by: Bobby Miller
All Drea (Tashiana Washington, from Fantasia 2018’s SKATE KITCHEN) wants is to get into a good college, but for now, she’s stuck making deliveries for a local sushi restaurant. One night, after her little brother Phillip (Jaeden Noel) witnesses meteors plummeting to Earth, one of her co-workers is attacked by hungry alien furballs with sharp teeth and big appetites. Yes, the rolling, ravenous critters are back, and soon Drea, Phillip, and two kids she’s babysitting (Ava Preston and Jack Fulton) are running for their lives. They’re also trying to protect an injured friendly alien they come across along the way, but every place they flee to becomes the site of a critter massacre.
Why we’re excited: Being fans of horror, the majority of us has seen the Critters franchise at least once. All of the original films prove to be fun creature features, and this one sounds like it will be just that.
Directed by: Gigi Saul Guerrero
Is the grass really greener in the Land of the Free? Desperate to start anew “where dreams do come true” and provide a safe haven for her unborn child, Marisol embarks on a perilous trek across the Mexico-United States border — only to realize that the real nightmare wasn’t the journey, but the destination. Trapped in a strange new world of pastel-colored sundresses and neighbourhood pizza extravaganzas, she quickly begins to question her own free will as none of her fellow travelers seem to recognize her, or each other.
Why we’re excited: The plot to this one seems nightmarish and horrific. Not only that, it is a Blumhouse production; a company that more than often delivers solid works of horror.
Directed by: Abdelhamid Bouchnak
Twenty-five years ago, a woman was found on a deserted road in the middle of nowhere, her throat slit yet very much alive. To this day, she has been imprisoned in a government-run asylum, under suspicion of having practiced black magic, largely forgotten as the world moved on. A group of journalism students choose to make the mysterious woman the subject of their university assignment, travelling far from home to attempt an interview with her. Deep on their journey, they find themselves at an isolated compound where a hidden tribal society has cultivated a way of life unseen by most. One brimming with ancient practices and beliefs, rituals and blood.
Why we’re excited: From what we’ve seen in the past, any film involving students journeying into unknown territory is bound to be filled with frightening events. Not only that, this film taps into the world of black magic and witchcraft; two things that can only lead to no good.
Directed by: Adam Egypt Mortimer
College freshman Luke (Miles Robbins of HALLOWEEN 2018 and BLOCKERS) has to leave his mentally ill mother (played brilliantly by Mary Stuart Masterson of BENNY AND JOON) behind and live his own life. He quickly realizes his social ineptitude and his inability to deal with his problems, and turns to the most unlikely of places for help — his childhood imaginary friend Daniel (played by Patrick Schwarzenegger). A perfect doppelganger to Luke, Daniel’s slick, bold confidence and charm seeps into Luke’s life, turning him from dud to stud. But Daniel’s audacious and grandiose exterior quickly begins to crack, revealing an increasingly sadistic and violent core. As Daniel’s stranglehold on Luke’s psyche tightens, Luke starts to question who, or what, Daniel really is…
Why we’re excited: Daniel Isn’t Real is another psychological horror flick that digs into mental illness. In particular, personality disorders. These themes tend to always be interesting to watch, and usually deliver on twists and turns. Plus, it is a film by SpectreVision, a company that has been good in the past.
Directed by: Pollyanna McIntosh
Late one night, a mute and filthy teenaged girl (Lauryn Canny) is struck by an ambulance outside St. Thaddeus Hospital, and she is taken in by the staff — who do not realize she was brought there by the animalistic Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh), who has harboured the girl in the woods for years. Darlin’, as she comes to be known based on a bracelet she wears, is transferred to St. Philomena’s Catholic boarding school for girls, where the Bishop (Bryan Batt) sees her “salvation” as a publicity vehicle to raise much-needed funds. As Darlin’ gets to know her eccentric schoolmates, the Bishop blackmails Sister Jennifer (Nora-Jane Noone) into helping him tame the wild — and pregnant — Darlin’. Meanwhile, the Woman hovers on the sidelines, waiting for a chance to reclaim Darlin’ and making short, bloody work of those who get in her way.
Why we’re excited: Darlin’ the third film to feature Pollyanna McIntosh’s fascinating character known as ‘The Woman.’ Fans of the first two films known as Offspring and The Woman should be excited for this latest follow-up that comes from ‘The Woman’ herself, Pollyanna McIntosh, in her directorial debut.
Directed by: Kimo Stamboel
In an attempt to boost their online popularity, a group of friends obsessed with their social media exposure decides to broadcast their clandestine visit into an abandoned building that was last used by a cult, before they were taken down violently by the police during one of their ceremonies. Thanks to Linda, the gang's youngest member, the students charm the security guard into letting them in, on one condition — never set foot on the 6th floor. Which, of course, is where their quest for likes undoubtedly leads. They discover old pages upon which are inscribed mystical writings that only Linda can see. Faster than you can say “Klaatu barada nikto”, she opens up a portal into an alternate dimension filled with wraiths and zombies that is home to a horrifying woman in red.
Why we’re excited: This is another film that demonstrates how social media popularity has become of major importance for young adults in that they will do anything for their online social status. By the sound of it, this movie focuses on straight-up horror with scary visuals and terrifying creatures.
Directed by: Gabriela Amaral Almeida
Dalva (Nina Medeiros), nine years old, plays in the dirt of her backyard. She has buried her doll here. In a disadvantaged neighbourhood of São Paulo, she lives with her aunt Cristina (Luciana Paes) and her father Jorge (Julio Machado), an exploited builder who works in unsafe conditions. Slowly, Jorge drifts away from his daughter, lost in the thoughts of his late wife’s yellow flower dress. The concrete and the dust have bruised his body. He is sick and lets himself rot, little by little. Inspired by her esoteric aunt and her favourite George Romero movie, little Dalva experiments with incantations and sorcery, in hopes of bringing her mother back from the dead, and saving her father from his demons.
Why we’re excited: We as horror fans love to see new films that are inspired by the classics. Based on the reference to Romero’s films in the synopsis, this movie sounds like it’ll focus on giving the horror community what they want while adding some unique elements to the genre.
Directed by: Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein
At seven years old, bright, lively little Chloe has never set foot outside the dilapidated suburban house she lives in with her loving yet seemingly unhinged father. “You’ve got to be a good hider, otherwise the bad guys will find you,” her daddy says. Fully trusting of his boundless protectiveness, Chloe is just a girl after all — and it’s getting harder to resist the sweet, enticing melody of ol’ Mr. Snowcone’s ice-cream truck beyond the door… Crossing over to a strange world that will feel just as unfamiliar to the viewer, she discovers a divided society where normalcy has taken on a new meaning.
Why we’re excited: By now, we have all seen films involving isolation. We have also seen our share of strange sci-fi flicks. This movie seems to interweave both concepts into one mysterious thriller that will keep everyone guessing what will happen by the climax.
Directed by: Rob Grant
Wealthy Richard (Christopher Gray) is prone to fits of violent anger, particularly when he believes his girlfriend Sasha (Emily Tyra) is cheating on him with his best friend Jonah (Munro Chambers) — who’s been having worse luck than even his Biblical namesake. Once they reassure him that his fears are unfounded, Richard invites Sasha and Jonah on an excursion aboard his yacht The Naughty Buoy to make amends. What starts out as a pleasure cruise becomes a fateful trip when festering suspicions and resentments bubble to the surface, and the trio become stranded on the open sea with a dead motor, extremely limited food and water, and one of them grievously injured. Unconsciously violating any number of maritime superstitions, they are soon at the mercy not so much of the elements, but of each other.
Why we’re excited: Harpoon follows the classic storyline of a trip gone wrong. With the mixture of isolation, trust issues and survival struggles, this movie sounds promising for those who love their contained horror.
Directed by: Zach Gayne
The shackles of Canadian politeness are the source of nightmares in the pop-horror-satire, HOMEWRECKER. Michelle (Alex Essoe) meets Linda (Precious Chong) at a yoga class. Linda’s wide-eyed enthusiasm is clearly off-putting, but Michelle’s aversion to conflict makes it difficult for her to brush off the increasingly pushy woman. Things escalate once Linda asks Michelle to redecorate her home and refuses to let her leave. Written by director Zach Gayne and the film’s two stars, Precious Chong and Alex Essoe (who wowed us with her breakthrough performance in STARRY EYES back in 2014), HOMEWRECKER has an unusual tone informed by late 1980s pop sensibilities. With the energy of a Jane Fonda workout tape, the movie escalates into the uncanny, especially as it deals with gendered expectations surrounding femininity and romance.
Why we’re excited: If you’ve seen the 2014 horror flick, Starry Eyes, you know that Alex Essoe is a talent worthy of more roles. This film sounds like it could be a lot of fun with its 80s aesthetic and dark comedy aspects.
Directed by: Tetsuya Nakashima
Hideki (Satoshi Tsumabuki of FOR LOVE'S SAKE) and Kana (Haru Kuroki, THE BRIDE OF RIP VAN WINKLE) are the embodiment of happiness. Recently married, the Taharas are now waiting for their first-born. They're glowing! When a mysterious guest at work talks to his colleague about a certain Chisa, Hideki is dumbstruck. Chisa is the name he and Kana had planned to give their daughter, a decision they had kept to themselves. What's worst, the friend who had spoken to the stranger suddenly dies under horrid circumstances. Two years later, convinced that a supernatural force is threatening his family, Hideki reaches out to Nozaki (Junichi Okada, THE FABLE), a writer specializing in the occult, and his clairvoyant girlfriend Makoto (Nana Komatsu, BAKUMAN) to rid himself of the entity that is casting a shadow on his happiness, which, as it turns out, may not be as genuine as it seems. To tell you anything more beyond this point about this completely bonkers horror tale would ruin the many surprises waiting in the impressive IT COMES...
Why we’re excited: We know that Japan is the land of great supernatural horror flicks. This one sounds no different as far as solid ghost films go. The movie appears to combine basic supernatural elements with family drama which will surely lead to an engaging story for those who love supernatural horror.
Directed by: Sergio Casci and Veronika Franz
Richard Marsh (Richard Armitage) is an acclaimed non-fiction author whose focus has been on extreme Christian cults. Over the course of his research, he has fallen in love with Grace (Riley Keough), the sole survivor of a sect’s mass suicide. Consequently, he’s in the process of a divorce from his wife, Laura (Alicia Silverstone). Much to the outrage of his children, Aidan (Jaeden Lieberher) and Mia (Lia McHugh), Grace soon becomes Richard’s fiancé. They refuse to accept her as their stepmother. Given Grace’s baggage when it comes to her own relationship with family, this poses no small problem. They head to a remote lodge in the dead of winter to celebrate Christmas together. Soon, a blizzard descends. Inexplicable, terrifying things begin to happen.
Why we’re excited: This film sounds amazing based on the setting and circumstances alone. You have a family that is already dealing with tension going to a remote area in the middle of winter. This sounds like a recipe for disaster. Plus, our one and only Jeremy Freeman has already seen this one and gave it his stamp of approval.
Directed by: Adolfo Borinaga Alix Jr
“In the time of colonization and oppression, a dark tale will be born. Out of misery, rage and hypocrisy, darkness will feed on the beaming light. In a small village, an enchanted forest carries fear, as spirits live there. They protect the forest against evil lurkers. Many never came out.” Thus opens this tale, on an ominous chant, of the Spanish-ruled Philippines of the 1900s: a time of tyranny, in which the Spanish clergy and the aristocracy went to great lengths to cover up their numerous and unspeakable misdeeds and crimes. A woman, raped and banished to the woods on a full moon’s night, sees her newborn child swallowed by animalistic shadows lurking in the foliage. Raised by the forest’s mysterious ghouls and demons — boars, wild cats and a many-eyed sage — the child grows. It experiences love, then heartbreak, and then fulfils the tale, changing into something larger-than-life, a mythical creature… a woman scorned.
Why we’re excited: We always find a fascination in period pieces that put focus on mythical tales. A film like this is almost guaranteed to gain interest in its storytelling as well as the general feel to the movie.
Directed by: Racela Keola
It’s the job that film nerds would die for: working in an old-fashioned, single-screen theatre. Our story takes place in one such venue, circa 1992. Besides being buffs, our teen heroes — assistant manager Chastity, Heavy Metal Jeff, Peeping Tom buddies Abe and Todd, and jock Ricky — are also devout Christians, serving under the watchful eye of manager Mr. Pike. Late one night after closing, the kids stumble upon a dusty film can and unspool the ancient celluloid. It’s a scratchy arthouse skin flick that switches reels to reveal a satanic ritual. The popcorn hits the floor when this secret screening unleashes upon the real world a sexy succubus with lust and murder in mind. The trapped, sex-starved teens are easy prey for the demon, but these Bible-thumpers won’t give up without a fight… even when their balls are (literally) up against the wall.
Why we’re excited: Yet another film that just sounds like a fun ride all around. It has a setting that is severely underused; the movie theater setting. Many of us horror fans love the aesthetic of an old-fashioned theater setting. That alone is enough to sell us on this flick.
Directed by: Christoffer Boe
Scandinavia has a reputation as an idyllic region — despite some nasty winters, it is an area that frequently boasts the happiest people, great social services, a high standard of living, and an overall harmonious balance between the collective good and individual freedom. But as the past decade of Scandinavian noir literature and film have revealed, not all is at it seems: scratch even a bit beneath the surface, and you will find violence, corruption, and hatred. In THE PURITY OF VENGEANCE, something is very rotten in the state of Denmark: a part of the past that the state, and culture, tries to pretend doesn’t exist in its public image of the utopian state, but one that cannot stay hidden.
Why we’re excited: By the sounds of it, this is a crime thriller that has some heavy horror influences throughout it. These films usually deliver on good storylines as well as disturbing moments that you may not see coming.
Directed by: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett
The minister said, marriage is “For better, for worse,” but in young bride Grace’s case, things get worse pretty quickly. After her high society wedding, the pretty orphan (Samara Weaving of Fantasia fave MAYHEM) joins her seemingly perfect—and filthy rich—husband Alex (Mark O’Brien) on his family’s opulent estate. The eccentric relatives (brother Adam Brody, father Henry Czerny, mother Andie MacDowell and other assorted unhinged in-laws) join the nuptials for a time-honored tradition…one that turns into a lethal game with the weapons-wielding clan fighting for their survival. For poor Grace, marriage isn’t a word, it’s a (death) sentence!
Why we’re excited: We’ve seen Samara Weaving in both Mayhem and The Babysitter; two fantastic, fun horror flicks from a few years back. Now she is back with what sounds like another fun hit that will surely entertain those who love horror comedies.
Directed by: Hideo Nakata
A young girl with amnesia is admitted to a Tokyo hospital’s psychiatric wing. Raised in secrecy, she barely managed to survive a fire started by her mother who, because of the former’s telekinetic powers, believed her to be the reincarnated Sadako. Psychologist Mayu Akikawa quickly grows fond of her, seeing herself reflected in her solitary past, a lifetime of loneliness. Meanwhile, Mayu’s brother Kazuma, a producer of absurd online videos, attempts to boost his viewership by broadcasting an excursion into the burned ruins of the girl’s house, when he suddenly disappears. Alarmed by the last-seen images of her only family and by several supernatural events linking her new patient to Sadako’s curse, Mayu sets off in search of Kazuma.
Why we’re excited: Anyone who’s a fan of the Sadako films will surely be thrilled with this. Many films have been related to the character of Sadako since Ringu came out in the 90s, but this one happens to be directed by the same man who brought us that original supernatural hit.
Directed by: Jordan Graham
Adam (Gabe Nicholson) lives a lonely existence in a cabin in a desolate forest, checking “Deer Cam” feeds on his computer and occasionally receiving visits from his brother Pete (Michael Daniel). Another family member looms large in his life: his grandmother “Nani” (June Petersom), who has long been a receptor for a spirit she calls Sator. This presence has been getting into her head and “training me, teaching me to be a person,” Nani says, and Adam slowly discovers that it has a more malevolent purpose as well. No longer confined to Nani’s psyche, Sator begins manifesting in other ways, threatening the lives of Adam and his troubled family.
Why we’re excited: Sator is an eerie horror tale of how an evil presence can force its way into peoples’ lives. This one seems like a classic, spooky tale that will be sure to creep everyone out in more ways than one.
Directed by: Hirotaka Adachi
The dead are accumulating at a rate that’s alarming, and the state in which the victims are discovered is even more so. They’ve all died of a heart attack visibly provoked by extreme fear, and their eyes have literally exploded. Mizuki witnessed the death of her friend. Haruo lost her brother in nebulous circumstances. The two students seek to understand the cause of this slaughter, and their investigation leads them to Eiko, who says she knows the origins of this mystery. Unfortunately, she dies under similar circumstances, but with her last breath, she mentions the name Shirai-san. This troubling story draws the attention of Mamiya, a journalist who decides to join Mizuki and Haruo in unraveling Shirai-san's curse. Little do the know, however, where their investigation will lead them, nor how much visceral horror will confront them at every turn.
Why we’re excited: Those of us who enjoy a good mystery will definitely enjoy this one. Not only does it sound mysterious, it sounds as though it could have a lot of disturbing imagery based on the deaths mentioned in the synopsis alone.
Directed by: Lorcan Finnegan
Schoolteacher Gemma (Imogen Poots) and her boyfriend Tom (Jesse Eisenberg) are madly in love and looking to buy a home. They meet with a rather unusual real estate agent (Jonathan Aris), who pitches them on a new suburban development by the name of Yonder (located, he says, “near enough, and far enough”). They follow him out there, driving behind as they watch the streets gradually evolve into labyrinthian rows of identical houses. They’re being shown Number 9. It’s not a starter home, they’re told. They soon realize that the agent appears to have left them there. He’s gone, as is his car. Fed up with the whole experience, Gemma and Tom get in their car and drive off. And off. And off even further. Somehow, with all the cookie cutter homes, they can’t figure out how to find their way out of the area. Worse, after all the driving, no matter which turns are tried, they keep finding themselves back at Number 9. Situations proceed to get especially strange. And deeply, deeply frightening.
Why we’re excited: The storyline to this film sounds like one we are all familiar with; an endless loop where the characters find themselves trapped in the same area no matter how hard they try to leave. This storyline is typically frustrating to watch and allows you to feel for the characters’ struggles. Additionally, it stars Jesse Eisenberg, a popular name in the community.
Directed by: Yoo Young-seon
Dead bodies are inexplicably starting to pile up on an isolated property in the forest, owned by a rich and powerful family whose lineage is threatened when its most recent heirs tragically die on their wedding day. Responsibility for this bloodbath seems to fall on the spirit of a woman who is haunting these grounds, her lamentations being heard for miles around as soon as the sun goes down. Authoritarian family matriarch since her husband’s disappearance, Madame Shin finds a young beggar, Ok-bun, to whom she wants to wed her youngest son in an attempt to break the curse by eliminating the wraith. The results are underwhelming to say the least, as the boy dies under horrible conditions, but not before impregnating Ok-bun with his descendant, making her the new target of the wailing woman in the woods. She’ll attempt to shed some light on the troubling secrets hiding in the dark corners of these ancient lands belonging to her captors.
Why we’re excited: Again, for those who love their Asian supernatural flicks, this one sounds promising. It offers the classic supernatural elements as well as some disturbing violence that many will love.
