Premiering on Oct 7, HBO Asia’s latest horror anthology, Folklore, invites six Asian movie directors to explore the myths and superstitions that lie at the root of their local ghost stories. 

Veteran Thai director Pen-Ek Ratanaruang—known for his quirky films Fun Bar Karaoke (1997) and Last Life in the Universe (2003)—will present the audience with Pob, which tells of an encounter between a foreign journalist and a cannibalistic Thai ghost who confesses to a murder. 

The series sees a different director helm each Sunday's one-hour episode. Other top names involved include Joko Anwar from Indonesia, Takumi Saitoh from Japan, Lee Sang-Woo from Korea, Ho Yuhang from Malaysia and Eric Khoo from Singapore.
