    "I have never liked any vampire-kind-of thingy story but this one is different. What makes it interesting is that a character of a priest was the one to be the vampire. I like how the story was created, it is very artistic and the little comedy never overpowered the horror film."

    "The best asset of the movie for me would be the little girl's character. It always makes me wonder what would she do. She has a great impact in the film."

    "I am not a fan of a horror film because I fear ghost, but this one, I can recommend watching to those who were like me. It was not so scary but still gives you chills every time someone is watching the blocked video. "

    "Combining 3 different horror stories in one film is such a clever idea. The 3 directors had their own creativity. All of the 3 were spot on!"
