An anthology of horror shorts from three different Asian countries. In "Dumplings," an aging actress wishing to reclaim her youth eats regenerative dumplings that contain a gruesome secret ingredient. In “Box,” a woman has a recurring nightmare about being buried alive in the snow. And in “The Cut,” a film director is kidnapped by an extra.

Another pulpy Creepshow movie would be more welcome than a second installment of this stiff stuff.

Dallas Observer by Bill Gallo

Connoisseurs of horror are bound to play favorites here (this amateur votes for Box), but there's one more thing that connects these three films--the brilliant cinematography of Christopher Doyle.

Variety by David Rooney

Plenty of vile little secrets and ghastly urges are explored in the stylishly made Asian-fusion horror triptych.

Film Threat by Eric Campos

So here it is, an arena rock type film event for lovers of Asian cinema. Good news is that you won’t have that annoying ringing in your ears the day after. Better news is that you’ll have food for thought way after witnessing these spectacles.

Chicago Tribune by Michael Wilmington

A bloody strange movie--and a surprise. Who would have thought that you could put together an anthology of "extreme" Asian horror featurettes by three cutting-edge Asian directors where the most tasteful, restrained contribution was the one by Japanese mad dog moviemaker Takashi Miike?

Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

What all three of these stories share is the quality found in Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King: An attention to horror as it emerges from everyday life as transformed by fear, fantasy and depravity.

The A.V. Club by Scott Tobias

Few directors are as "extreme" as Miike, but ironically, his entry in Three... Extremes is the least explicit; its suggestive tale of envy and guilt resembles Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" more than Miike's usual six-per-year gorefests.
