I’m a little bummed out. It appears as if The ABC’s of Death isn’t as awesome as once thought. I’m utterly gutted, this is one of my most anticipated film of the year, but if its anything like a lot of your comments are suggesting, perhaps I should give it a miss.
Still, we all have different tastes, so if you’re also looking forward to this one, we have scored a brand new featurette from the film which you can view below.
The list of directors attached is as follows, Kaare Andrews, Angela Bettis, Adrián García Bogliano, Bruno Forzani & Hélène Cattet, Ernesto Díaz Espinoza, Jason Eisener, Xavier Gens, Jorge Michel Grau, Lee Hardcastle, Noboru Iguchi, Thomas Cappelen Malling, Anders Morgenthaler, Yoshihiro Nishimura, Banjong Pisanthanakun, Simon Rumley, Marcel Sarmiento, Jon Schnepp, Srdjan Spasojevic, Timo Tjahjanto, Andrew Traucki, Nacho Vigalondo, Jake West, Ti West, Ben Wheatley, Adam Wingard and Yûdai Yamaguchi.
Synopsis: “It was a cinematic challenge like no other: twenty-six directors from around the world — all connected to fantastic or horror cinema — each shot a short film about death based on a word starting with a selected letter from the alphabet, showcasing death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty. Directors include the warped minds behind Hobo With a Shotgun, You’re Next, Tokyo Gore Police and A Serbian Film, to name just a few.”
The film is also scheduled for a limited theatrical release this March 8th.
