Artsploitation Acquires 'Horror Stories', 'Memory of the Dead', and 'Wither'


WitherArtsploitation Films is placing its foot firmly in the horror business with the acquisition of three international horror films. Based in the City of Brotherly Love, Artsploitation has acquired Korean anthology Horror Stories , Argentinian cult creeper Memory of the Dead, and Swedish cabin-in-the-woods-meets-creature-feature Wither from the Blood Runs Cold writers.

“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,” Artsploitation President and CEO Ray Murray said.

But the woman has an ulterior motive; one that involves sacrificing the souls of each of her guests to bring her husband back to life. An atmospheric parody of horror films and a subtle homage of Italian Giallo films, director Diment utilizes a mix of comedy, sex and old-fashioned gore to present a dizzying tale of the occult.
