The Reviews for Tales from the Dark 1 (2013) 720p

An abysmal horror anthology from the seedy sides of Hong Kong...Reviewed bypaul_haakonsenVote: 2/10

I must that I was quite thrilled when I got the chance to sit down and watch "Tales from the Dark 1" (aka "Mai lei yeh").

Why, you ask?

Well, there were two main reasons for this. The first being that this is a Hong Kong horror anthology; which combines two of my favorite things - the horror genre and the Hong Kong Cinema. And the second reason being that they had some really big and established names on the cast list.

It dawned on me not even half way through the first of the three segments that make up "Tales from the Dark 1" that I would be in for an about an hour and a half of pure abysmal storytelling.

The first segment, titled "Stolen Goods", was about a man down on his luck and forced to steal the urns of the dead and demand a ransom for their return. But of course the spirits did not take lightly to his folly. Right, well this story just made no sense and it was mostly just an abundance of trying to pull some jump scares. Which failed.

The second segment, titled "A Word in the Palm" was even worse that then first segment. The storyline here was absolutely horrible. And I must admit that I lost interest in it quite quickly and found myself with my mobile phone in my hand instead of paying 100% attention to the garbage on the screen. I know that it was about a fortune teller and his wife and they were looking into a murder or something. Yeah, I paid that little interest to this segment.

The third and last segment, titled "Jing Zhe" was actually the most interesting of the three segments. But that is saying very little, because it still wasn't particularly outstanding or entertaining. It was about a woman on the street beating photos for people, a local Hong Kong tradition that makes very little sense.

All in all, this anthology was not worth the time, effort or the money.

It should be said that they had some rather impressive talents to act in the movie, which includes Simon Yam, Kelly Chen, Suet Lam and Tony Ka Fai Leung. And anyone even just overly familiar with Hong Kong cinema should know one or all of these people. But even with such established performers on the cast list, little was done to lift the movie, as not even they could save this train wreck of an anthology.

I was so discouraged by this anthology that I have little to no interest in watching "Tales from the Dark 2".

A long haul movie, falling short on a few vital ingredientsReviewed byvideorama-759-859391Vote: 6/10

In this review I'm including part 2 as well. As a gore hound to this so called Asian horror fest, I was let down for quite a while as there's much more humor, instead of slashings, decapitations, what have you, to these six small tales of the bizarre, that constitute a movie of over three hours running time. I didn't find it that much scary as I thought. As with Evil Dead, to a smaller extent, again my expectations were held too high as I thought it would be full bore. There are a couple of moments where you'll jump thanks to the dark and deafening nasty music score, that preludes that moment of surprise or shock. The nasty score at the start gave the impression this was to be a really scary sick flick, but it really disappointed me on that number as did the gore. The most sickening gore scene is the one in the last shorter tale involving a prostitute who gets her just desserts. Although Tales in The Dark is very smart and invented story wise, no denying that, what we've got in between is a lot of drone time, flatness, the story telling cuts too deep, weighing the film down, until the next shock, although the humor, compensates for quite a bit of it. But for the reasons stated earlier, I was just expecting a more scary vehicle. One asset was story 2, which starred Tony Leung, one of the best Asian actors of this generation, if not the best. And what would a multiple horror tale film be, without one including revenge. Not without interest, just some of you, you expectations will fall short.
