ABCs Of Death 2 Green-Band Trailer

8 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last week we brought you the insane and bloody red-band trailer for ABCs of Death 2. A tamer green-band trailer has now been released that you can show to your kids if you want! It's not as gory as the red-band, but it's still a fun trailer to watch that's packed full energy.

Trailer For ABCs Of Death 2

2 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Two years on from the first anthology, ABCs Of Death 2 is almost upon us, delivering another 26 international horror shorts in time for Hallowe'en. If you saw the original you'll know what to expect, but if you missed it, here's a taste of what's in store this time around. As you might guess from a film that's a kind of alphabetical Darwin Awards for gorehounds, the red-band trailer below is gleefully nasty and very unsafe for work...As before, the directors were randomly assigned their letter and given free reign to decide what word it stood for and what their film should be (providing it involved death in some way). The above reveals an eclectic mix of kids' fantasy adventure, botched beheading, hiking accidents, Russian Roulette, zombies (natch), monstrous burgers, stop-motion animation, urban myth and Julian Barratt.Directors this time include El Katz (Cheap Thrills), Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), Alejandro Brugues »

‘ABCs of Death 2′ Red Band Trailer: 26 New Ways to Die

2 September 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[Warning: The above trailer is extremely Nsfw.]

-

A lot of feature length horror movies tend to follow prescriptive formulas, but 2012 anthology film The ABCs of Death shook things up by gathering together 26 directors and giving them total free rein to create a film on the subject of death – provided the film was only a few minutes long. One of the benefits of this approach was that there was something for everyone in the insane and often ridiculous mix of horror and comedy, and if you don’t happen to enjoy one chapter then there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy the next one instead.

The appeal of The ABCs of Death was enough to earn it a sequel with attached directors including Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Larry Fessenden (Habit) and Oscar-nominated short film director ...

Fantastic, Nsfw Look at ABCs Of Death 2! [Trailer]

2 September 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The bad thing with anthology films is that the quality can vary from short to short but that also happens to be the good thing about anthology films because if something is really terrible, it'll be over in just a few minutes and a new possible bit of awesome starts. That was certainly the case with the first ABCs of Death and that's likely also going to be true of the follow-up but judging from the opening of the trailer, the sequel is already looking like all sorts of awesome.

The line-up of directors this time around is nothing to scoff about and includes the Twisted Twins (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary), world renowned animator Bill Plympton (Cheatin'), Vincenzo Natali (Haunter, Splice, Cube), E.L. Katz (Cheap Thrills), [Continued ...] »

A Brief Look at the History of Movie Titles & Opening Credits

18 August 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One year ago, Nora Thos and Damian Perez released the following short film taking a look at the history of movie titles and today it was brought to my attention thanks to Slashfilm. While only touching on the art of movie titles in broad strokes, it's an interesting look at what the short calls "The Film Before the Film", covering enough territory and offering enough details to make it easy for you to being doing a little research of your own. The film obviously touches on the work of Saul Bass (North by Northwest, The Man with the Golden Arm), Maurice Binder (Dr. No), Pablo Ferro (Dr. Strangelove), Greenberg Associates' work on the original Superman titles, Kyle Cooper (Seven, Mimic), Digital Domain (Fight Club) and the inventive work of Kook Ewo for Splice as well as plenty of earlier work in film from Thomas Edison to the Rko titles before »

‘The ABCs of Death 2′ has a release date

Image from The ABC’s of Death 2. Chapter directed by Erik Matti

The ABCs of Death 2 now officially has a release date and it is just in time for Halloween. The film will be released by Magnet and Drafthouse Films on VOD on October 2nd and a limited theatrical run a few weeks later on the 31st .

The sequel is a follow-up to 2012’s horror anthology The ABCs of Death and, like its predecessor, will contain 26 short horror films by some of the genre’s greatest minds. As expected with so many shorts, the original was a bit of a mixed bag. There were certainly some incredible shorts like D is for Dogfight directed by Marcel Sarmiento, T is for Toilet by Lee Hardcastle, U is for Unearthed by Ben Wheatley, X is for Xxl by Xavier Gens, and the disgusting L is for Libido by Timo Tjahjanto.

DVD Review – Haunter (2013)

14 July 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haunter, 2013.

Directed by Vincenzo Natali.

Starring Abigail Breslin, Sarah Manninen, David Hewlett, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Michelle Nolden, Eleanor Zichy and Peter Outerbridge.

Synopsis:

The ghost of a teenager who died years ago reaches out to the land of the living in order to save someone from suffering her same fate.

In a genre slightly starved of creativity, Haunter deserves kudos for at the very least trying something new and original. With it’s Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow-style narrative, director Vincenzo Natali (Splice) has certainly made a decent little thriller that for the first half at least does a respectable job despite it’s obvious budgetary constraints (the CGI fog is pretty bad), with some decent camerawork and a few genuine jumps. In that first thirty minutes, the film firmly puts you in guessing mode: why is Lisa in a time loop? Is she being punished? Is Lisa »

Pictures from The ABCs of Death 2 – including Nsfw image pulled from Facebook

8 July 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Released later this year, The Abcs of Death 2 has some new images from the 26 short movies, including one that was pulled from their official Facebook page last night for being too graphic.

The segment in question is directed by American Mary‘s Jen and Sylvia Soska. The image was removed from Facebook (for good reason) and certainly gives an indication that we might be getting some very uneasy viewing for male audiences.

Nsfw Image from The ABCs of Death 2 So Graphic It Was Pulled from Facebook!

Making a name for themselves with Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary, twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska make their anthology debut with The ABCs of Death 2, contributing a short film to the madness.

Though we don't yet have any idea what their entry will be about, we can be pretty damn sure it's going to be a hard one for male audiences to endure, as this just released behind-the-scenes shot leads us to believe. You have been warned, men!!

Check out the Nsfw image below, which was pulled from The ABCs of Death 2 Facebook page for being too gruesome for mass consumption!

Sarah Polley Will Adapt John Green’s Looking For Alaska

25 June 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After scribing and sitting behind the camera on indie Take This Waltz and documentary Stories We Tell, it may be time for actress/writer/director Sarah Polley to hit the big time. Deadline reports that Paramount is eying her to adapt Looking for Alaska, working from the novel by The Fault in Our Stars writer John Green.

Apparently, Polley, who received an Oscar nomination for her debut screenplay Away from Her, made a strong pitch to Paramount, which led to studio execs signing her to adapt. Polley may also direct the film, but that hasn’t yet been determined. Though the actress starred in Dawn of the Dead and Splice, writing and directing has taken priority for her in recent years. Both Take This Waltz and Stories We Tell received rave reviews, which likely factored into Paramount’s decision.

According to Deadline, Green’s novel, his first, centered on a “16-year-old boy named Miles Halter, »

Welcome back, listeners of This is Our Design, the Hannibal podcast that runs longer than episodes of Hannibal (thanks for putting up with us). This week, we’re actually giving you the equivalent of two episodes just in case next week’s podcast gets pulled for being too graphic for network podcasting. We can’t make any promises.

It’s a special episode this week, which features co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick speaking with director Vincenzo Natali (CubeSplice and two episodes from this season of Hannibal, among other works) about “Tome-wan” and some more general topics about directing, television and this series overall. The main discussion covers a range of things, including loneliness and structure in the episode. Also featured: what might be the most detailed “Kate’s Classical Corner” to date and a lightning round of “The Devil in the Details.” A songbird told us that you »

The ABCs Of Death 2 Releases First Slew Of Horrifying Images: See Them All Here!

12 May 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot on the heels of their ambitious horror anthology The ABCs Of Death, Drafthouse producers Ant Timpson and Tim League decided that the world needed another collection of horror shorts spanning every letter of the alphabet – and adventurous horror fans much like myself rejoiced. The ABCs Of Death 2 was greenlit, the directors were selected, and the inevitable waiting game began.

I tried on numerous occasions to extract as much information as possible from contributing artists – Jerome Sable, Aharon Keshales, Navot Papushado were tight-lipped in our interviews – but it looks like Magnet and Drafthouse are ready to start opening the floodgate of horrors hiding amidst these 26 short stories that are ready to shock, scare, and revolt viewers in ways the original didn’t dare.

While certain sites were originally given their own exclusive images, we’re now able to collect the smattering of gross faces, forest scenes, and creepy monsters »
