This will be the first time the Philippines is going to be featured in the horror anthology.

The statement said Direk Erik is among the select directors "who will ramp up the fear factor as Folklore examines the human condition when exposed to supernatural powers in a mind-bending race against oneself, each story bringing a different take and perspective."

Other Asian directors who bringing in their country's horror cultures into the show's second season include Thailand's Sittisiri Mongkolsiri, Taiwan's Shih-Han Liao, Billy Christian from Indonesia, Nicole Midori Woodford from Singapore, and Bradley Liew from Malaysia. Pop singer-songwriter, Seiko Matsuda, will be making her directorial debut in the episode from Japan.

The statement said the principal photography for the series will start early next year.

"Folklore Season 2" promises to bring a "different kind of horror based on local superstitions and myths from six different countries in Asia, the statement said.

Direk Erik is the man behind Filipino horror masterpieces including "Seklusyon," "Kuwaresma," "Vesuvius," and the "Aswang Chronicles."

You can stream or download the six-part first season of "Folklore," which features local superstitions and myths from six different countries in Asia, on HBO GO.
