Robert Boocheck’s M Is For Masticate has won Magnet Releasing’s ABCs Of Death 2’s ‘Search for the 26th Director’.
The film, produced by Ant Timpson and Tim League, is an anthology by well-known horror directors of 26 alphabet-themed ways to die. The final entry, the letter M, was selected via a competition inviting international filmmakers to submit their own M-themed deaths.
ABCs Of Death 2 is a sequel to ABCs of Death, which held a similar competition to find the T entry.
Boocheck, a Los Angeles-based music promo and commercials director, was chosen from 541 entries from 40 countries and picked up a $5,000 cash prize.
M Is For Masticate will become ABCs of Death 2’s official M segment.
“Its clever mix of comedy and splatter, capped off with a hilarious punchline, embodies everything the ABCs Of Death is about, and will make a wonderful addition to our anthology,” said associate producer and competition organiser Ted Geoghegan.
