That doesn't usually work very well with smart-packs enabled (the default). They won't come around a corner unless they think you are vulnerable to multiple attacks. You need to go around a corner into a room, and kill them instantly as they enter. But it only works if you can kill them in a single turn. If you have stone to mud or good tunneling, you can create a small room in an existing hallway; that's safer than using a full-sized room.

With smart-packs and insufficient killing power, you probably need to run. Eventually you will outdistance your pursuers.
