The second short about a killer escaping on a plane is also very good, although some parts may be a bit predictable. Still, the suspense is good enough to keep you guessing and the characters play their parts well as either likable or easy to hate.
The third story is so over the top you would think it would be implausible but it's not. Two sisters are fighting to win the same man and they will go to some pretty major extremes to make it happen. Although the characters are drawn from very simple good vs. bad cloth, the story will keep you guessing on how it will end and the unpredictability of it gives you a nice sense of suspense to enjoy.
The fourth story has to be the best and what a way to end a movie! Zombies,a mother and an ambulance-what a great combination. I truly felt like I was there and the story line gave me goosebumps more than once as I imagined what it would feel like to be on this particular ride.
The wrap around story has its own share of horror and scares and I doubt it will disappoint. I have to say this is the best horror anthology I've seen in a long time as all four stories and the wrap around are strong in scares and tension is palpable. I loved the V/H/S movies but only one or two of their stories could reach this level of fear. I can't wait to see part II.
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.
