A bracing anthology of horror stories uniting three of East Asia's most compelling directors : Miike Takashi, Fruit Chan, and Park Chan-Wook. These three tales of horror explore the outer limits of the macabre by exploring "Three... Extremes." "Dumplings" is about Bai Ling who plays a specialist in preparing dumplings that promise to restore youth and health for her customers; the weird part is she also runs a suspicious clinic on her premises. "Cut," revolves around a self-centered director who gets trapped at his home (or is it the set of his new movie?) by a deranged former extra. "Box," takes its cues from traditional Japanese ghost stories and is about a young woman who is haunted by a family tragedy from her past.
