It doesn't get more gleefully sadistic than this. Made by 26 directors, each one assigned a different letter of the alphabet to use as inspiration for a four-minutes-or-less short about one kind of fatality, The ABCs of Death is a short-film program straight from hell. It's a depraved treasure chest of morbid curiosities.
The filmmakers, a who's who of international genre craftsmanship, include Canada's Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Britain's Simon Rumley (Red, White & Blue), fellow Brit Ben Wheatley (Kill List), Argentina's Adrián García Bogliano (Cold Sweat), and Mexico's Jorge Michel Grau (We are What We Are).
The ABCs of Death shows no shame whatsoever, offing people via Bigfoot, Nazis, and even a toilet. All bets are off.
