Aroview: Three prominent Asian maestros of terror serve up an intense and rewarding portmanteau of short horror works.

'Dumplings' (Dir. Fruit Chan) - A former TV star, obsessed with reversing the aging process to preserve her beauty, turns to special dumplings, served up in a highrise apartment block. Too late the horrendous consequences of the recipe are revealed...

'Cut' (Dir. Park Chan-Wook) - Another elaborate revenge scenario from the dir. of OLD BOY, with a disgruntled individual setting a fiendishly awful trap (involving piano-wire and a bungy-cord) for a successful film director and his family.

'Box' (Dir. Takashi Miike) - The dir. of AUDITION here proffers a surreal tale of a troubled writer and former circus-performer whose jealousy resulted in the death of her twin sister.
