Magnet Releasing has announced that The ABC’s of Death will be released on various On Demand platforms on January 31 with a limited theatrical run set for March 8. This definitely sounds like a pretty bad ass idea. It is like an anthology with 26 different stories. Unfortunately we have to wait for 2 months before we get to check it out.
Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABCs 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.
