We’re continuing our HORROR OCTORBOR FOUR-BOR world tour of foreign-language horror films this week with returning guest Julia and the 2004 Asian horror anthology Three…Extremes! A triple feature of spooky shorts from Hong Kong (Dumplings, directed by Fruit Chan), South Korea (Cut, directed by Oldboy‘s Chan-wook Park) and Japan (Box, directed by Ichi the Killer’s Takashi Miike) feature a delightfully unsettling mix of scares. From an aging actress turning to a disgusting alternative remedy to keep her vitality, to a disgruntled extra torturing his neglectful director, to a young woman looking for her long-lost sister, this is a fantastic sampler pack to an entire continent’s worth of horror. Check it out along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!
NOTE: If Jared sounds a little tinny for the first few minutes, it clears up at about minute 8. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it gets fixed quickly!
