Artsploitation Films, which markets itself as 'International Films with an Edge', has acquired three international horror films for their already impressive libraray. The three foreign fright features include HORROR STORIES, MEMORY OF THE DEAD and WITHER.

All will be given full stateside releases by the new label based in Philadelphia. President and CEO Ray Murray said about all three films:

“With this trio, we go deeper into our horror series (the other release being Hidden in the Woods). The three films here are truly edgy, stylish and creepy, each have a new delight that we hope even hardened horror fans will embrace.”

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

HORROR STORIES from Korea is an omnibus film which tells the tale of a kidnapped girl forced to tell scary stories to the serial killer that kidnapped her. She tells four stories all made by different directors: Don’t Answer the Door (Jeong Bum-shik), Endless Flight (Yim Dae-Woong), Secret Recipe (Hong Ji-Young) and Ambulance on the Death Zone (Kim Gok and Kim Sun).

MEMORY OF THE DEAD (directed by Valentin Javier Diment) from Argentina follows a girl as she undertakes a bizarre cult ritual to restore her deceased husband to life – a ritual that will see her home and friends visited by the spirits of the dead.

The Swedish film WITHER (directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund) begins with a group of young friends who head off to a secluded cabin in the woods only to have their fun weekend turn to a bloody mess when they disturb the resting place of an evil creature.

You can check out the early sales trailer for WITHER below.

As word comes in on these films releases we'll be sure to let you know. Keep checking back for updates.

The above still comes from Jeong Bum-shik's HORROR STORIES.

Wither appears to be a Swedish The Evil Dead. Except that Laguna and Wikland use Norse folklore instead of Appalachian folklore with a Lovecraftian influence (as Raimi's classic did). I do not know if any of these films are good or not. But, they might be worth checking out. Almost always, foreign horror takes a different approach than the American and British horror that one is used to.
