Three constitutes an omnibus package of three short horror films made by Asian directors. "Memories," made by Kim Ji-Woon, is about a woman (Kim Hye-Soo) who disappears from the home she shares with her husband (Jung Bo-Seog) and children, and ends up in a futuristic city filled with many disturbing hindrances to her finding her way back home. Nonzee Nimibutr's "The Wheel" contains a puppeteer who is unsuccessful in warning a dance troupe about using cursed puppets. Peter Ho-Sun Chan's "Coming Home" stars Eric Tsang as a policeman who becomes involved with his neighbors, a married couple who are involved in with some mysterious herbal medications.
Very entertaining if your interest lies in the cross cultural views of the supernatural. The acting and production values are very high. For fans of scary movies and those scared of the dark, this rates at least an 8 and is a must-see. For non-fans of the genre and those lacking the appropriate phobias, it's a way to learn how to scare your friends.
The Sixth Sense, The Blair Witch Project, The Shining and Psycho may be thought of as Western views of the para-normal which evokes fear and discomfort in the the viewer. The unknown and unexplainable often generate that eerie and queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach, or awaken a simple sense of curiosity. Are you afraid of what is behind the curtain or do you want to see what's there? Three is a good way of measuring your Asian Fear Quotient.
