Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.
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."

(Opening card) The following feature film was created by 26 directors from around the world. Each director was given a letter of the alphabet and asked to choose a word. They then created a short tale of death that related to their chosen word. They had complete artistic freedom regarding the content of their segments. See more »
26 directors all doing whatever they want for a straight 2 hours. The result is a massive, and I mean MASSIVE tribute film to every kind of horror flick there is.
Some of the shorts feel like splatter comedies like Dead Alive and Evil Dead 2(the short A comes to mind), while others seem like a run of the mill slasher like Friday the 13th(the short B comes to mind). Some are first person point of view, some are over the top exploitation, some are dark and disturbing. A couple are just random.
A lot of them have a twisted, childish sense of comedy, making this a great experience if you are seeing this with some friends and got some pop and chips. Actually, that's really the best way to see this.
The ending credit song, 'Horror Movie' is also an awesome song and a couple of the shorts like L and V are EXTREMELY well done.
If you are a horror fan and have seen quite a lot of the indie kind, then this is a must see.
