The scariest night of the year is coming closer. Three extremely dark stories will perfectly lead to the atmosphere of the Halloween, and at the same time will be a prelude to the forthcoming edition of Five Flavours.
A Thai legend about a phantom inhabiting the bodies of young girls; a paranoid Korean thriller about fears hidden under the bed; and an Indian horror fairy tale about human greed. This year’s edition of Asian Horror Night is a disturbing journey into the depths of human (and not only) nature. Together with our characters, we will experience things, we certainly would not want to experience in our real lives. In order to bring relief to the ragged nerves and clenched stomachs, during the break between the films, we invite you for a delicious Asian treat.

A dark tale of greed that can bring us all the way to hell. As a child, Vinayak discovers a legend of an extraordinary treasure hidden in the cellars of Tumbbad’s dilapidated manor house. Years later, as an adult, he returns to his native land to gain wealth, regardless of the ominous words about the curse that guards it.
Impressive set design, shoot intact locations, “Tumbbad” became the first Indian film to open Critic’s Week at the Venice Festival.
KRASUE: INHUMAN KISS
DIR. SITISIRI MONGKOLSIRI, THAILAND 2019, 122′
According to an old Thai legend, the Krasue is a bloodthirsty ghost who enters the bodies of young girls so that it can feed itself through them. Teenage Sai unexpectedly discovers that she has fallen victim to a curse. At night, her head separates from her body and attacks the villagers.
“Krasue: Inhuman Kiss” is a fresh look at Thai legend, with bows to the classics of native and western horror cinema. The film became a Thai candidate for forthcoming Oscars.
DIR. LEE KWON, SOUTH KOREA 2018, 102′
Kyung-min lives in constant fear. Living in a modern apartment building, despite the advanced security measures, does not give her the desired sense of security, and in private space, there are more and more traces of someone else’s presence. What at first seemed to be just a sick obsession quickly turns into a blood-chilling horror film. The threat comes from a place we consider safe – from the inside of our home.
The film is a remake of the award-winning Spanish hit “Sleep tight” / “Mientras duermes” from 2011.
