Triple bill of Korean horror films. 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When they unexpectedly have a child of their own, however, their adopted son becomes withdrawn and solitary.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.
