    Excellent trio of horror shorts Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The three short films presented in "Three" show the three faces of horror. The first film, "Memory", is the new school of horror. It's all about using editing, camera angles, and sound to shock and manipulate the viewer. It instills feelings of horror in the audience, while giving short shrift to its rather thin story. Of the three films, it is the most likely to make viewers jump out of their seats, but the least likely to be remembered. Kim Hye Su, as a housewife surprised to find herself cast into the afterlife, manages to fashion a sympathetic character.

    The second film, "The Wheel" is old school horror, a moral tale about the horrific consequences of people consumed by sin, with the sins explicated here being envy and greed. Boasting gorgeous cinematography, beautiful costuming, and a rich story, the film uses cursed puppets as a metaphor for covetousness. By immersing the film deeply in traditional Thai culture and by taking seriously the concept of evil, director Nimibutr Nonzee shapes an unforgettable vignette.

    "Going Home" finds a middle ground between the old and new approaches to horror. It begins by generating a creepy atmosphere through the usual bag of editing, sound, and cinematographic tricks, then makes policeman Eric Tsang a captive eyewitness to what he perceives to be horrifyingly mad behavior by grief-stricken widower Leon Lai. Our perceptions then are turned upside down by a surreal surprise ending. Leon Lai, in a stunningly controlled performance, is terrific.

    All in all, "Three" provides a good overview by a trio of very talented directors of the current state of the art in horror films. I recommend it highly.

    Well done Leon Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The Korean story seems predictable but keeps you guessing and thinking a bit. In the end it all makes sense. Quite enjoyable. I am afraid I do not like the Thai story, perhaps lacking of cultural understanding? However the Chinese story was just superb. It was so cleverly done, well supported by Tsang and without having to look handsome, Leon proves he has good acting skill. Very moving in a way, you might even shed a few tears. Just concentrate in watching and you will enjoy it tremendously.

    great in a sense of artistic Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I was really fond of the first two stories (korean one and the chinese one, forgot the names) but the last one was ehhh.. not scary and been done before. I felt that the first story provided nice cimetography and storyline but as you watch more horror movies, it's nothng special. The second one i liked alot. The storyline and acting was well put and the silence left you thinking about the in a strange twisted events that the couple lead. The third one was just not good and did not compliment the others two. You should definetely watch it not for "silence horror" not "blood and gore horror" if u get what i mean.

    It wasn't scary... Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
    If you really like suspense or horror movies, this movie isn't for you. It is eerie in some parts, but otherwise isn't scary at all. I bought this based on the reviews in addtion to it being listed amongst some of my other favorite Asian Suspense/Horror movies, but I was quite let down. However, in terms of cinematography and acting, this movie was quite well done.

    excellent movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Somehow Leon Lai can be a great actor (I personally don't like his songs much) and his act in this movie is superb. No wonder he won the best-actor award. He is well worth the award!
    Between the "four Kings of music", Leon can live on the longest - not singing though but acting. I think he can continue to act good even when he grows old later - he can always choose the right role to play.
    Andy Lau's acting is too "surface" and shallow and the other two are dead already (in movies, I mean).
