Ever since I heard about The ABCs of Death premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, I’ve been intrigued by its unique premise. This film is the second horror anthology to arrive in 2012, along with Magnet Releasing’s V/H/S. In this movie, distributed by the same production company, the twenty-six letters of the alphabet each demonstrate a different tale of death. Each of the segments were filmed by a different director, giving each short film a different perspective.
Some of the directors for the feature include Ti West (The House of the Devil), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl), Adam Wingard (V/H/S), Noboru Iguchi (Dead Sushi), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Xavier Gens (The Divide), Kaare Andrews (Altitude), Angela Bettis (actress in The Woman), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse), and more.
