Wow, just went to go see these three shorts last night, which are about
45 mins a piece. I agree that "Cut" was one of the most enjoyable
horror experiences I have had since High Tension. Takeshi Miike is
probably the biggest name in the Asian horror biz, but I have to say
that I miss the style of his earlier work, like Audition and Happiness
of the Katakuri's. "Box" was very strange but it leaves little
explanation for what has actually occurred, and I wish it delved a
little deeper. And oh my! Mr. Fruit Chan, I have never heard of you
before last night. "Dumplings" was by far one of the most deranged
things I have ever watched. And the sound that was used in this short
was was of the most intense, stomach curdling noises that are still
sticking with me today. This was a very fun watch, and I am glad I got
to see it before it left the theater. My recommendation….don't eat a
big meal before you start!!!
