We'll be together, even until death
2 July 2006 | by (Atlanta, United States) – See all my reviews

Black Night is a compilation of three scary stories and are all filmed in different parts of Asia. The first story "Next Door" (filmed in Hong Kong) is definitely the scariest of the three. It involves a (very attractive Thaiwanese) girl returning to her cheating boyfriend only to find there's another (Chinese) girl in the picture. The other girl not only wants her out of their lives but now wants both of them dead. Its very creepy and the camera-work is definitely topnotch, as you get some of the strangest angles of how the girl sneaks up on them. This chapter not only had a good story but a really scary ghost and was the most violent of the three.

The second story "Dark Hole" (filmed in Japan) involves a relatively simple lady who keeps seeing ghosts of dead people coming after her. She apparently has forgotten her past memory of having found an imaginary creature as a kid. The creature is brought back to her under hypnosis by the therapist who is trying to help her find out why she is seeing these things. The creature's desire to kill those who cross her turns deadly as she realizes that maybe SHE is the one with double-personality and it might not exist at all.

The third story "Lost Memory" (filmed in Thailand) is more story driven about a wife/mother who recently lost some of her more important memories in a car crash. Some of them are cloudy and vague while others she may have completely invented herself. Shes uncertain which people in her lives are still here or may be dead, but there's a side plot of child kidnappers on the news so maybe she is a victim of that. It gets fairly confusing as you don't learn the truth until the end of this one so its less scary than confusing.

All three are very dark and while some are more scary than psychologically disturbing, its overall a good experience in Asian horror.
