ABCs of Death, The

Lists: Horror

Brief Synopsis: "An ambitious anthology film featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children's educational ABC books, the motion picture is comprised of 26 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. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational; THE ABC's OF DEATH is the definitive snapshot of the diversity of modern horror."

Drezzy40 - Uneven. Completely uneven. Some of the shorts were brilliant ("C is for Cycle," "D is for Dogfight," "T is for Toilet," and "V is for Vagitus" are my favorites), others were bizarre for the sake of being bizarre ("H is for Hydro-Electric Diffusion"), and some were just flat-out stupid. The good is good, the bad is bad, and most of it is just meh. I applaud the concept and idea of finding 26 directors from all over the world to make their own death scenes and merely giving them a letter to do so with.
