I am shocked how positive this filmed is being recieved and how most other horror films are being dismissed. We have some terrific directors, great acting, decent cinematography... but that doesn't make the outcome any better. The I am shocked how positive this filmed is being recieved and how most other horror films are being dismissed. We have some terrific directors, great acting, decent cinematography... but that doesn't make the outcome any better. The stories are for the most park boring. Dumplings was effective but the story wasn't developed right. Cut was the best of the 3 but it resembled the violence in Chan-wook's Oldboy too much and wasn't a necessary see. Miike's box was the most beautifully shot but there was nothing to be scared about. The twist at the end was kind've cool. Three... Extremes it is not. More like Three... Simples. Not very scary, not very effective... but at least interesting. Worth seeing once... but see these director's other works if you want to see something really scary and really extreme. Expand

I only saw the Director's cut of Dumplings, but I will have to say it's a very good story. No lame ghosts, no "scary" bumps in the night, just humans being as twisted as they can be. I recommend this to ALL fans of horror who have I only saw the Director's cut of Dumplings, but I will have to say it's a very good story.

Other people may be turned away by the lack of hollywood scares (thank god!). Enjoy! Expand

Definitely one of the better anthology horror films, not like that's saying a lot. We have very talented director's, competent cast, pretty cinematography but the stories seem to fall flat for the most part. Nothing bad, just underwhelming.Definitely one of the better anthology horror films, not like that's saying a lot.

My DVD of this has two discs, one for 3 Extremes, and one for a feature length version of the first story in the film Dumplings. Maybe the feature length will allow the story to be developed better than it was in 3 Extremes.
