Not really worth the effort...
28 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Normally I am not overly keen on anthologies as there haven't been that many that has been overly impressive. But still, this is a South Korean horror anthology, so why not give a chance, even without having seen the first movie. Why? Well, simply because I had the opportunity.

The first segment, "The Cliff", was nicely filmed, although the story was really predictable. It was more of a drama than it was a horror experience. But I suppose that the supernatural twist to it and the amazingly ridiculous ending was enough to call it horror by the director's standard.

Moving on to the second segment, "The Pain of Death", again not scary. However, while it was initially a bit boring, the director managed to tie together all strings in a very fulfilling way, which made the ending quite good. But as for the scares, don't get your hopes up.

The third segment, "Escape", is way over-the-top and totally stands out from the previous two segments. But not really fitting to the anthology, again, it is nowhere near being even remotely scary. "Escape" was odd and bizarre in a way that it was the most entertaining of all segments.

It was actually the narrative story in between each segment which turned out to be the best of all the stories and also the most interesting.

All in all, "Horror Stories 2" was a less than mediocre horror experience in the South Korean horror genre.
