I am a huge fan of foreign horror films, especially Asian horror. I am also a huge fan of horror anthologies, so this South Korean horror anthology film had a lot going for it in my eyes before I ever watched it. Luckily, upon actually watching the film, I was not disappointed in the least. This is one of the better horror anthologies I have seen in a while! Here is some info on the film from the Artsploitation Films website:
Horror anthologies might be everywhere these days, but the Korean entry Horror Stories raises the bar with four terrifying stories (and a nail-biting wraparound tale), each one chilling enough to be its own feature. If you thought this was going to be a tame collection of teen-friendly “ghost girl” stories – think again. Horror Stories goes right for the jugular with non-stop splatter, intense shocks and riveting suspense. A high school girl is abducted and forced by a psycho to tell him the scariest tales she knows.
- “Don’t Answer the Door” finds a little brother and sister home alone at night and under siege.
- “Endless Flight” has a serial killer escaping police custody in the middle of an otherwise empty flight.
- “Secret Recipe” serves up a wildly macabre fairy tale about two jealous stepsisters who take plastic surgery to nightmarish extremes.
- “Ambulance on the Death Zone” is a claustrophobic zombie shocker with a paramedic and a mother at a standoff over her possibly infected young daughter.
HORROR STORIES is a must see for any horror fan in my opinion. The production value is top notch and the acting in all 4 stories is superb. I think the first and last story are my favorites by far, with the last story (“Ambulance on the Death Zone”) being my favorite. This is a zombie film done in a very unique way, as most of the entire film takes place inside an ambulance. The confined space of the ambulance really works well with this story and adds to the suspense.
