'ABCs of Death' director Vincenzo Natali picks his favorite movie death of all time

31 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vincenzo Natali is one of those guys who made a genre classic with his first feature, something that can be both a curse and a blessing to a filmmaker. Think of how many directors come out of the gate with something that defines them, only to end up trapped by it later in their careers. Natali certainly didn't disappear after "Cube," but he did deal with the sort of independent financing nightmares and development paralysis that has sidelined so many talented guys. I am a big fan of "Splice," a movie he made more recently, and I also think his segment in "The ABCs Of Death 2" is a lot of fun. To help spotlight that anthology film, we asked Vincenzo to share with us his favorite movie death of all time. I think it's a great way to get to know a filmmaker. If you really want a bead on who they are, »

'ABCs of Death 2' animated opening is absolutely killer

29 October 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Horror anthology sequel ABCs of Death 2 delivers a second slate of 26 fatality-featuring short films overseen by an array of directors, which, this time around, includes Evan Katz (Cheap Thrills), Larry Fessenden (Beneath), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, See No Evil 2), Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice), and Julian Barratt, from cult British comedy duo The Mighty Boosh. But one of the film's highlights comes very early with its opening credit sequence, an animated riff on the children's books which inspired the franchise in the first place. ABCs of Death 2 is now available on VOD »

An exclusive look at 'U For Utopia' from the brand-new 'ABCs of Death 2'

2 October 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So how did you guys spend your Thursday nights? Me, I'm enjoying "The ABCs of Death 2," which is live on VOD right about now. It's a sequel to the anthology film that Drafthouse Films put out a few years ago, another chance for 26 different directors to get together to make short films about… well, death in all its forms. Murder, accidents, crimes of passion, age, sheer stupid luck. It's a great group of filmmakers working on the movie this time, and we've got a couple of fun things coming up to help celebrate the release of the movie. Tonight, for example, there was a #DeathParty. What's that? Well, on Twitter, a bunch of the filmmakers all got together to hold a live conversation, a running commentary during the film, starting at 7:00 Pst. They were joined by Tim League and Ant Timpson, two guys who have the most rabid appetites »

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 »
