Storyline

The ABC's OF DEATH is an ambitious anthology film featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children's educational ABC books, the motion picture is comprised of 26 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 snapshot of the diversity of modern horror. Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures and Timpson Films are proud to present this alphabetical arsenal of destruction orchestrated by what Fangoria calls "a stunning roll call of some of the most exciting names in horror across the world."

A must-watch-in-a-lifetime for all horror fans as if you think you are twistedly sick enough.
8 September 2014 | by (Los Angles, USA) – See all my reviews

An anthology horror/comedy film that has something for everyone who are in love with horror films. However, not everyone will find this movie appealing even to some horror fans as this film is filled with over the top violence, weirdness, and sick jokes. The GORES in some segments like the letter T segment is smartly and sickly used as well as the letter X and U that provides even more gross out gores. There's not much of a SCARE in this film as most of the story are mainly based on gruesome deaths and sick jokes that will make you laugh than trying to scare you like the letter F one and also letter W and Z that can be described as being f*cked up funny. Beside those, there are still the ones that are well written and really bring new surprises like the letter D and L segment and if you are into experimental film then the letter O is for you. Overall, this is new experience in film-making that requires those with a twisted and hard core mind with strong stomach to find this enjoyable the whole way through as some may segment can be too sick and gross out to handle for some. All in all, this film is a must-watch-in-a-lifetime for all horror fans as if you think you are twistedly sick enough, this film will definitely opens up your mind into a more perverse sickness and violence you might have never imagined before >>A-<<
