4. MIRIAM YEUNG AS MRS. LI IN DUMPLINGS (2004)

One of Asian horror’s strongest entries is the anthology Three Extremes, which includes Hong Kong native Fruit Chan’s gross-out “Dumplings.” Two years later, the segment was lengthened enough to warrant its own feature film rollout, hitting theaters in Britain with the original story still intact. Yeung’s Mrs. Li is aging and insecure, desperate to reinvigorate her looks by any means necessary. A chef makes her some special dumplings, said to have rejuvenation powers. What Mrs. Li doesn’t know, however, is that there’s no pork or veggies inside the tasty appetizers—the chef’s special ingredients are unborn fetuses taken from abortion clinics. We dare you to order Chinese takeout for dinner tonight.
