Chilean Horror Film ‘Yokai’ Scores Worldwide Distribution

Chris Savage

YokaiIt is often that we hear of a Chilean horror film around these parts, but if they all sound as awesome as Cristobal Echevensko’s horror film Yokai, I just wish that they would keep churning them out.

But as is, Yokai has scored worldwide distribution via Shoreline Entertainment, according to the folks over at Variety, so hopefully we will be hearing some more on this one in the coming months.

Shoreline director of acquisitions, Melody Djavadi, said;

With his first feature, Eschevensko surprisingly, strategically captures the gory essence of the best horror films while expertly interlacing suspense, fashioning a unique supernatural thriller. I’m excited to begin what is sure to be a long and prolific relationship with this talented filmmaker.

So it certainly sounds as if Eschevensko is a director we should all be keeping our eyes on, and hopefully, Yokai, turns out as good as it sounds.

The film is “described as a story of suspense with supernatural elements of terror, “Yokai” turns on Lydia, a 28-year-old employee of a jewelry store who tries to steal a valuable diamond from Yokai, the Japanese man owner of the jewellry, who is a serial killer in his spare time, living at home with all the ghosts of the victims of his murders.”

So what do you guys think?
