Skyline Strikes Deals on ‘Soul Reaper,’ ‘Vietnamese Horror Story’



Vietnam-based sales agent Skyline Media has closed multi-territory deals for two of its current titles “The Soul Reaper” and “Vietnamese Horror Story.”

The deals follow Skyline’s recent trip to Busan’s ACFM and come ahead of its participation as exhibitor at a string of further final quarter sales events – Tokyo’s TIFFCOM, Santa Monica’s American Film Market and Taipei’s Taiwan Creative Content Fest.

Folk horror film “The Soul Reaper,” currently in the final stages of post-production, was licensed to GaragePlay for Taiwan and to Westec Media Limited (WML) for Laos, Cambodia and nine other Southeast Asian territories.

The film, adapted from Thao Trang’s best-selling horror novel “Lunar New Year in Hell Village” (aka “Tet O Lang Dia Nguc”), is set to be released in Vietnam cinemas on 08 December.

GaragePlay is one of Taiwan’s leading distributors, and recently handles releases of “Suzume,” “John Wick: Chapter 4” and “Someday or One Day.”

WML is the biggest content distributor in Cambodia and has distributed more than 1,000 titles theatrically since its establishment. Its current releasing capacity is 150 titles per year in the country.

Skyline has also struck a deal with Russia’s World Pictures for the distribution rights in the CIS region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan) of Vietnam’s biggest horror hit of 2022 “Vietnamese Horror Story.” It was previously licensed for distribution in North America, Australia, Japan and Southeast Asia.

As with “The Soul Reaper,” the film hails from the well-known director-producer duo Tran Huu Tan and Hoang Quan.

Skyline says that the latest deals are a “distribution landmark” for Vietnamese feature films and underline the company’s status as Vietnam’s “most dynamic sales agent for Vietnamese content.” It has achieved rights deals on behalf of more than 100 Vietnamese film and TV titles with licensees in 49 countries and territories.
