Four Korean horror stories are chilling enough to be their own features. In “Don't Answer the Door,” a little brother and sister find themselves under siege while home alone at night. “Endless Flight” revolves around 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. An international genre festival success from Sitges to Fantasia, Horror Stories is one of the best Korean horror films in years.
