Triple-bill of asian horror classics. In 'Premonition' (2004), Hideki (Hiroshi Mikami) picks up a strange newspaper that foretells horrific accidents and deaths, and he is powerless to prevent them. But when he reads of his daughter's impending death, he desperately seeks out a way to change the future. In 'Dark Water' (2002), Hitomi Kuroki stars as Yoshimi, a recently-divorced working mother with a history of mental imbalance. Having won the custody battle for her five-year-old daughter, Ikuko (Rio Kanno), she moves with her daughter into a new apartment. But it isn't long before strange occurrences begin: the ceiling leaks incessantly - and when the ghost of a small girl in a yellow dress starts to appear around the place, Yoshimi's already precarious grip on her sanity gives way completely. Finally, in 'Ring' (1998), fear spreads among the students of a local high school when the news circulates of a mysterious videotape which brings death to those who watch it. TV reporter Reiko (Nanako Matsushima) sets out to investigate, finds a copy of the tape in a deserted cabin and falls victim to its awful curse. With only one week left to live, her only hope is to uncover the story behind the tape, to find out where it came from and why it wields such terrible powers.
