Entertaining, but one VERY significant fault when compared to the first two.
5 September 2018 | by sixstringjamSee all my reviews

I love the first 2 ABCs of Death movies, so obviously, this was a no-brainer when I found out it existed. Since I didn't have much money, I decided to rent it on Amazon Video rather than buy it. This was a very good decision.

The short films are good, entertaining, and creative, and I can definitely see why the studio decided to release this installment, in order to acknowledge the entries that were stellar, but just barely fell short, yet more than deserved recognition in their own right. Honestly, I would give this a 7 or 8, if not for one absolutely fatal flaw, in my opinion: they show what word is the basis of the short film BEFORE the short film is played.

In the first two installments, the short film plays and then the word is revealed, which brings a sense of mystery to the experience, as you're trying to figure out what the keyword is. When you know what the word is prior to seeing the short film, it takes away all of the mystery and fun of trying to figure out the premise and what word the director could be representing or interpreting. This makes it impossible to have that moment of revelation and realization, where everything just clicks and you can appreciate the nuance and creativity of every detail, something that made the first two movies so much fun to watch.

Keep in mind, this is just my opinion, and it is a major hindrance to the experience to me. If this dactor isn't as important to you as it is to me, then there is a lot of enjoyment to be had here. However, if you agree with me on this element, then I still recommend watching it, since the short films are done well, but only rent it, or watch if it is freely available on a streaming service. It will ultimately leave you far less satisfied than the first two.
