Contains Into the Mirror, Acacia, and The Wig. In 'Into the Mirror' (2003), Ji-Tae Yu stars as Wu Young-Min, a former policeman who quits the force after accidentally causing the death of his partner while trying to save his life. Now working as a security guard at a deserted shopping mall which was closed after a series of murders took place there, Wu becomes increasingly drawn into the web of mystery and terror surrounding the killings, while also reliving the horrific memories that punctuate his own past. In 'Acacia' (2003), when a childless couple decide to adopt a young orphaned boy, they think that their family is complete. When they unexpectedly have a child of their own, however, their adopted son becomes withdrawn and solitary. Eventually he becomes convinced that an acacia tree in the garden is the reincarnation of his real mother. At first his parents see this as another example of his growing fantasy world, but when the boy mysteriously disappears, they begin to fear that the tree in the garden may harbour dark secrets. Finally, 'The Wig' (2005) tells the gruesome tale surrounding two sisters and the demonic wig that comes between them. Each sister, it seems, has suffered a terrible trauma: Chi Hyon (Seon Yu) can no longer speak due to a terrible car accident that damaged her vocal chords, while her younger sibling Su Hyon (Min-seo Chae) has been diagnosed with cancer with little chance of recovery. When Su Hyon loses her hair due to chemotherapy treatment, Chi Hyon decides to give her younger sister a beautiful wig to help her regain her confidence. Immediately, Su Hyon begins to change in ways her elder sister never expected.
Contains Nothing But the Night (Sasdy, 1973), Vampire Circus (Young, 1971) and The Man Who Changed His Mind (Stevenson, 1936). Adapted from a novel by John Blackburn, Nothing but the Night is an occult mystery which, in its Scottish setting and centrality of children to the plot, is reminiscent of The Wicker Man. Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee - as a pathologist and a policeman respectively - star as the men trying to work out the mystery behind the sudden deaths of trustees of an island castle orphanage. A Hammer horror set in early 19th century Serbia, Vampire Circus sees an itinerant circus arrive in a small village. Initially there is rejoicing at the prospect of entertainment to relieve the burden of years of plague, believed by the superstitious locals to be the result of a vampire's curse - but shortly after the circus's arrival the children of the village start to die in mysterious circumstances. The Man Who Changed His Mind is a rare 1936 British Boris Karloff film. Karloff plays Dr. Laurience, a once-respectable scientist whose research has led him to research the origin of the mind and the soul. The scientific community has rejected him, and he risks losing everything for which he has worked - but then he is offered a lifeline - and the use of a laboratory - by the owner of a newspaper looking for a good story. But just whose brains is Dr. Laurience going to experiment on?
A lurid shocker from 1960 in which a plastic surgeon on the run after disfiguring the face of a patient hides out in a circus, where he transforms the faces of badly scarred women into the the beautiful stars of his show. However, the police and a nosy reporter become interested when the women who want to leave the circus begin dying in freak accidents, and they begin to suspect that the doctor is responsible.
