They are known as myths, lore, and folktales. Created to give logic to mankind's darkest fears, these stories laid the foundation for what we now know as the horror genre. A feature-length anthology film with parts directed by eight of today’s most talented genre filmmakers from around the world, each contributing a short film about a myth from their country, and all stitched together to make one feature film.
