NOT horror, but still worth a watch
7 April 2014 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

First off let me start by saying that this is NOT horror. The atmosphere within these stories aren't creepy or scary in the slightest (apart from "Zoo" which has a creepy tone to it) and they seem to belong more in the thriller/drama/mystery categories.

With that said I actually really enjoyed this film as whole but I can't really put my finger on why. I just liked the atmospheres and the way the directors decided to portray the stories. The only complaint I have is that the true significance of some of the stories is never revealed which might leave people with a bitter taste in their mouth (if you're a fan of Asian cinema you should be used to it).

My personal favourite out of the 5 films: "Seven Rooms".

Definitely worth a watch for people who aren't expecting a blood-bath and are okay with watching some well-paced mysterious stories.
