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."

If You Love 'Adult Swim' and the Taboo and Bizarre, You Will Enjoy This Gem
I highly recommend this movie for adults age 18+ to watch, if they enjoy the bizarre, the highly unusual and a unique anthology of horror/gore/splatter and even animation from all over the world that will certainly stand out in one's mind for a very long time. Depending on your personality, you will really enjoy some episodes, surely despise some, and some may even elicit a laugh or two. If it strikes you as stupid or worthless, at least watch it to about halfway through to make sure it isn't for you as each short is only about 5 minutes long, and one or two may strike you as really good ideas.
I've watched this several times and believe it to be a new cult classic, with it's mishmash of many taboo and off-the-charts ideas and concepts. A lot of these may offend "the average watcher", so do not watch this movie if you are easily offended, close-minded, and/or opposed to watching something so far out of the norm that it may make you feel uncomfortable. You have to enjoy a certain type of movie as this is an extremely eclectic mixture of the most taboo subjects in a horror -- or in some instances horrible -- framework.
The audience I really truly recommend this to are the type of people who enjoy watching Adult Swim and find that to be witty and humorous at the same time. Disturbing, but fun! I give it 5 stars, easily!
