HIFF is proud to present HORROR STORY, the horror omnibus of four episodes by five filmmakers including Jeong Bum Shik (EPITAPH), Kim Gok and Kim Sun (WHITE), Hong Ji Young (THE NAKED KITCHEN), Yim Dae Woong (MY TEACHER) and Min Gyu Dong (MEMENTO MORI, ANTIQUE), who did the bridge cuts connecting all episodes. All four episodes are combined in a film-in-film structure provided by a story of a young girl who is kidnapped by a serial killer who cannot sleep until he listens to a story horrifying to death.

All directors - except Hong – have made horror films before presenting distinctive styles and themes of their own in the frame of traditional horror conventions. Introducing classic elements of horror films like zombie, serial killer, each episode addresses different social issues of contemporary Korea from laborer’s reality to vulgar capitalist desires. HORROR STORY will definitely fuel the heat of Korean horror films.
