Cheng Li-sheung is a young, upwardly mobile professional finally ready to invest in her first home. But when the deal falls through, she is forced to keep her dream alive - even if it means keeping her would-be neighbors dead.
Nearly a year after a botched job, a hitman takes a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff for three killings. What starts off as an easy task soon unravels, sending the killer into the heart of darkness.
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."

The opening shot of each of the 26 short films features the camera panning away from something red, for example, a red dinner tray in the "A" film, a red circle on a characters headband in the "S" film, etc. See more »

I loved some of the shorts! And while they seem to have different lengths (the only thing they actually had to consider was the money and flexible time frame), they also have major differences in quality. You get shorts from directors from all over the world, which means that there are different languages spoken as well.
So some might require you to read subtitles. Yes even for a short it is important to know what they are talking about. Some have more dialog than other of course and you get animated features and some that break the fourth wall (like the letter Q). From extreme to subtle everything is in here and it's combination something you might like more or less than me. Whatever the case, they seem to have been successful, because a "sequel" is on its way for 2014
