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."

the ABC of stupidness
2 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

That anthology must be one of the worst horror anthologies ever!The stories were so quick and amateur it hurt my eyes just by watching them.Some people found it good and interesting?Really?How good can a story be whose title is Fart??Seriously i can write down a few stories right now and beat that sorry and random anthology...I think that the most decent story of this horror madness must be the one with the two girls who use drugs..that was okay...but that's it..fin...I doubt that it was a scary story but it was kinda smart..unlike the other meaningless and random stories.The last story is tragic!I am amazed the rating is so high because i have seen better horror movies and their ratings were unbelievable low and i think that this is unfair because most of these movies were decent!Overall not worth your time at all..complete waste of my two precious hours..
