The first two segments really sucked
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I thought this was a actual sequel to the original and was excited to see it, and was disappointed to find out it really isn't actually a sequel and just titled it 3 Extremes 2 because it has three horror segments and it's better for marketing. At least from what I heard. The first two segments sucked, the first segments started out kinda creepy but it started to go in the cheap scare direction and nothing about this segment was memorable and the title of the first segment is "Memories". The second segment is the worst out of the three and really hated it, super boring as hell to watch and absolutely nothing about it was scary. The thought of creepy puppets being cursed may seem like a okay idea, but the direction and everything about this crap is boring. Seeing how the director screwed up for just a short segment, his other films must suck as well. I just really disliked this segment. The third segment is my favorite one in this film, and if the other segments was good as the last one I would have really enjoyed this movie. The plot is about a cop that moves to a apartment with his son, and the person living near them is a necrophiliac or seem like it. I liked how when you think one thing of what is actually going on, it changes to something else and keeps you guessing. I enjoyed this segment and if the other segments was good as this one I would have given this film a way higher score, but as a film itself overall I didn't like it because the first two segments sucked big time. Just do yourself a favor and skip to the last segment "Going Home".
