Nothing Extreme about it
6 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are deciding whether to watch this film based on the fact that you enjoyed the original Three Extremes, then you should not. Avoid at all costs. At best, in this film there is only 1 horror story and 2 supernatural dramas.

While the original had cutting edge horror directors, superb pacing and tension (minus dumplings due to extreme editing) this one only has one acclaimed horror director and two horror producers trying to direct horror. The 1 horror director I am referring in this series is Jee-woon Kim (A Tale of Two Sisters) and though he manages to make the best short of the three shorts (entitled Memories), the other two fail so horribly that it really deflates any effort put in by Jee-woon.

Stay far away from this if you liked the original, it left me in poor spirits and I felt totally cheated by the producers of the original and their ploys to cash in on how amazing the original film was.

I would recommend this to people who normally are afraid of extreme Asian horror cinema as this is a great vanilla way of enjoying supernatural/paranormal stories. Also, die hard fans of Jee-woon should catch Memories because it has great acting and is technically far superior than the other two shorts. You can also witness some of the evolution of the atmosphere employed later from A Tale of Two Sisters.
