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 »

The ABCs of Death is a horror anthology unlike any other. 26 directors of varying notoriety, 26 letters, 26 gruesome, horrifying, funny and vile ways to die. The shorts are so incredibly varied and there's almost no time to reflect on them individually because as one death ends another one instantly begins. Whether they were good or bad doesn't really matter. There's no need to rate the shorts. I let each one effect me in their own unique way. Watching this film brought out the inner child in me. It's like walking through the video store and looking at all the VHS covers in the horror section. It's a continuous flow of creative freedom and energy that I found sort of exhilarating.
