Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters; each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, THE ABC’s OF DEATH is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity.

CAST

 

“ENORMOUSLY IMPRESSIVE. ONE-STOP SHOPPING FOR DEVIANT CINEMA. To anyone who still doubts the ambition, imagination and filmmaking chops in the worldwide new wave of horror movies, I offer you “The ABCs of Death.” It made me laugh hysterically, shout with outrage, wince with discomfort and yearn to hide under the sofa, all by the halfway mark.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

“HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVETHE ABC'S OF DEATH? That it soars to such artistic heights, and such tasteless depths, on a global scale, no less, bodes well for the future of cinema fantastique and otherwise.” – Mark Savlov, Austin Chronicle

“DEMENTEDLY ENJOYABLE. Like Sesame Street for psychopaths.” – Dennis Dermody, Paper
