Pillow is one of the more hyped-up story out of the three (in the media), as it was acted out by Fala Chen and Gordon Lam, 2 of the more well-known actors in Hong Kong. The movie was also rated M18 because of the number of sexual and revealing scenes in the film. I would say this is more of a ghost -sensual film than a horror film. The plot was predictable and the flow of the movie was so slow that it took any scariness (if any)out of the film. If I was to rate the movies by the horror level, this film will get a 0.5 out of 5. But because of how simple yet relevant the story was (insomnia and relationship insecurity) and perhaps the contrast of the story from the rest, I would still say it's much better than the Black Umbrella (see third story)

Hide and Seek had successfully scared the sh** out of me (surprisingly). It is an irony that the scariest or most successful film did not use any known celebrities. Using tried- and -tested horror filming techniques, I got to admit it still got me covering my eyes and screaming like a scared-y cat. After watching this film, my sister told me that she wouldn't want to play hide and seek ever again. Both of us found it ridiculous why would there be anyone who want to celebrate her birthday in a deserted school which was closed down due to too many SARS deaths in the school? Despite the no sense plot, or the plain foolish-ness of the kids, this was the scariest movie out of the three.

Black Umbrella is basically a joke. I don't understand why it was used as the last story. The story was about a hobbit-sized man Lam going around with a black umbrella, attempting to do good deeds. He bumped into an unreasonable prostitute who tried to extort money from him and the conflict brought out the demon in him. Teddy Robin acted as Lam and directed the film himself...
