FIVE FINE FOREIGN FRIGHTS Oct. 17 2013
By hongkongfilmfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD 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.

Completely disagree with other review-check the reviews for the DVD Aug. 19 2014
By LFrog1386 - Published on Amazon.com
If you've seen the V/H/S movies, this movie has the same set-up premise. Four horror stories are surrounded by a wrap around story that gives a reason for the four stories to exist. In this case, a teenager girl is kidnapped by a serial killer who tells her that if she tells him stories that scare him well enough, he won't kill her. So off we go with the first story of a young brother and sister home alone when an intruder breaks in. Your imagination immediately takes over and you feel as if you are one of these kids and your heart is pounding right along with the characters. It's a strong start to an accomplished series of shorts.

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.

Another great horror anthology from the Far East Nov. 7 2013
By Anticlimacus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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 Boring Vignettes April 20 2014
By Len Stoner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The only horror in this set of worn out stories is the waste of time watching it. There's nothing here that hasn't been done much better elsewhere. There are four stories. The first has to do with a young girl and her brother who are home alone and someone breaks in. This almost seems like a version of Ray Bradbury's "The Veldt", but not so much. I have no idea where this story ended because it just jumped into the second story. There's the obligatory zombie story and something about a serial killer on an airplane. None of the stories attempt to have a shred of logic. The photography is bad as you can barely see anything in this flick. Somehow, someone is confusing horror with gory slasher films. The makers of this crap need to watch some real horror movies. Start with Hitchcock, George Romero, and the Hammer studio anthologies if you want to understand what Horror is. Amazon should be ashamed for even including this dreck in their catalog of movies.
