5.0 out of 5 stars FIVE FINE FOREIGN FRIGHTS October 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Different Korean directors present these five horror tales that are much more frigntening and entertaining than anything Hollywood has made in many years. These five stories include known genre types (children home alone with a killer, serial killer loose on a plane, sibling jealousy/elite cannibalism, contagious zombies) and adds something new to each making it familiar yet highly unpredictable. Horror stories successfully provides a frightfully good time, offerring something for everyone who enjoys horror. Hollywood films quit being scary years ago when it began using humor or just building suspense without anything truely scary occurring. Korean is known for excelling in psychological violent revenge tales so horror is a natural fit. Horror stories is a welcome return to the Tales From the Crypt formula, keeping the stories short, suspenseful and scary. The wrap around story is of a young girl held captive. Her kidnapper can only sleep when his blood runs cold so she has to tell him Horror Stories to stay alive. The first story "Sun and the Moon" is about two young children home alone in a scary apartment with a killer locked inside with them. The second story "Endless Flight" is about a serial killer being escorted by on a chartered flight who kills the police and is loose on the plane. Usually in these anthologies there is at least one weak story but all the Horror Stories are strong is this antholgy. This film was very well received when it was shown at the Asain Film Festival in Dallas in 2013 so this is not just my opinion, others who saw Horror Stories were impressed. Showed Horror Stories to my 21 year old daughter last night who perfers to not read subtitles but enjoyed it becasue it was so unpredictable. Highly recommended for all fans of horror or Korean films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great horror anthology from the Far East November 7, 2013
Man, I tell you. The Japanese, South Korean, Chinese, and Thai filmmakers know how to make good horror anthologies. Over the past decade or so we have been treated to Three Extremes (2004), Goosebumps from Japan (2007), Goosebumps: The Movie (2012), Unholy Women (2006), Prayer Beads (2004), Phobia (2008), Phobia 2 (2009), Evil Spirit Viy (2008), Zoo (2005), Tales from the Dark 1 & 2 (2013), Ghost Story Shin Mimi Bukuro (2012), and now Horror Stories (2012).

Horror Stories (2012) (Korean Horror Anthology) - This omnibus surrounds a girl who is kidnapped by a killer who challenges her to save her own life. He tells her that he cannot sleep unless he is scared or tastes blood, so she must tell him scary stories if she wants to escape. This main storyline (entitled "Beginning") is advanced further in between the other segments. The first story ("Don't Answer the Door") is about a young brother and sister who are visited by a suspicious delivery man. This is a really cool home invasion film that morphs into something else. Great performances by the kids and there's a boatload of suspense (4/5). The second story ("Endless Flight") is about a flight attendant who eludes a serial killer during a plane flight. Not especially unique or clever, but it is moderately enjoyable (3/5). The third story ("Secret Recipe") is about two stepsisters who vie for the same man. The story here is confusing but shifts in rather unpredictable ways. The scares are a mix of blood and suspense, and are fun to watch (3.5/5). The fourth story ("Ambulence in the Death Zone") is about five people in an ambulance, one of whom is infected with a zombie virus. This starts off predictably but gets very exciting as it progresses (3.5/5). Overall, this is a very fun and high quality collection of short stories.

As an FYI, Horror Stories 2 (2013) is also quite good but not yet available in the U.S. Hopefully that installment gets a DVD release in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever Korean horror that does not disappoint! November 25, 2013
If you have never given foreign horror a look, you should. There are many genre-bending titles out there that will give even the heartiest of horror fans a nice treat. One of my most recent favorites is HORROR STORIES, a slick Korean anthology that entertains on many levels. This collection of horror shorts is not perfect but it is a lot of fun and chocked full of scares and gore.

As mentioned, this film is an anthology of four short films that are a subset of the primary plot. This setup is similar to V/H/S, in that the shorts have nothing to do with the main story but they are an integral part of how it progresses. I like this format when it is well done, as is the case with HORROR STORIES.

I mentioned that this anthology is not perfect and here is why: a couple of the stories insinuate several things but don’t exactly explain what is going on. Case-in-point is the first story, “Don’t Answer the Door”. This film is very clever and leaves you with a cold feeling at the end, however the twist it takes about three-fourths of the way through is confusing. I had to pause the film and think about it for a minute to make sure I understood what was happening. I had to piece a couple of far-reaching things together but in the end I got it. I enjoyed this one, but I feel like it should have been done differently.

Still, HORROR STORIES is a wickedly good horror gem that you should not miss. My favorite tale is “Ambulance on the Death Zone”. Putting aside the fact that it deals with my favorite horror topic (zombies), it is also extremely intense and kept me nervous while I watched it. I was even fidgety because of my nerves! That says quite a bit, as I am no youngster nor rookie when it comes to horror.
