Executive producer James Lee presents his latest short scary film omnibus.

Filmmaker James Lee has faith in the omnibus format for his latest production 3 Doors Of Horror 2014.

“Chances are, if the viewer doesn’t like the first film then he or she will probably enjoy the other ones,” said Lee at the 3 Doors Of Horror 2014 premiere in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, yesterday.

Previously launched in 2013 by Lee’s own Doghouse 73 Pictures, 3 Doors Of Horror aims to be a platform for up and coming filmmakers to showcase their creativity with short horror films. The first 3 Doors Of Horror omnibus released last August contained three short films directed by Leroy Low, Edmund Yeo and Ng Ken Kin. The 44–minute long clip currently has over 600,000 views on YouTube.

Lee’s new 3 Doors Of Horror 2014 retains the same 44–minute format with three new shorts directed by Sidney Chan, Black Cat and Low again from the previous installment.

Low directed Turnover, a short about a young man who encountered strange happenings during a lonely game of basketball. Turnover stars YouTube sensation Joseph Germani. In second short Delete, Chan showed that some selfies are not meant to be taken. Then in Black Cat’s The Strange Mechanic, a girl discovers that her newly–acquired second hand car has a horrifying past to it.

Lee said is very much impressed by the talent and hard work displayed by his three new talents.

“My filmmaking guidelines for them was very loose. The only thing I had to do was tell them to keep the duration short and check the script. On set, they did everything on their own. I really believed in them.”

Lee also said that he plans to release the next installment of 3 Doors Of Horror next year, with the hopes of making it an annual event.

Filmmaker James Lee is the executive producer behind short horror film omnibus 3 Doors Of Horror 2014.
