The ABCs of Death

PLOT:

Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six 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

What people are saying:

“It is uneven like most anthologies, with segments that range from scary to funny to clever to silly – and as such, some of them are quite efficient but many are far from that, like “M Is for Miscarriage” and “Z is for Zetsumetsu”, both of which stand out as particularly awful.” 2 1/2 stars

“Insanely inconsistent collection of garbage. One, maybe two good segments mixed in with pretentious nonsense and needless shock value.” 1 star

“Very cool and different movie. It has Asian, European, American, Mexican, and many other language films. Our Shari had anime and claymation. Some of the stories are very dumb or artsy, but overall very good movie.” 4 stars

“X is for XXL is likely the most effective short film I’ve ever seen, and some of the other entries (S is for Speed, U is for Unearthed, D is for Dogtooth) are enjoyable, but so many of them are so abysmal it’s hard for me to recommend the experience as a whole.” 2 stars

“Out of the 26 stories, I can only think of 3 or 4 that were memorable or entertaining at all. I’m not sure if it will be worth the watch to get those moments or not. Watch at your own risk.” 1 star
