2012 saw the release of The ABCs of Death, a hit-and-miss anthology comprised of 26 short horror films, each one directed by a different filmmaker.
The idea, in a nutshell, was that each filmmaker was given a letter of the alphabet and tasked with revolving their contribution around a word that began with that letter, the only real guideline being that the word had to correlate to the way a character in the short met their end.
This October, the fun concept comes back from the dead to teach us our horror ABCs all over again!
Set for VOD release on October 2nd, followed by a theatrical roll-out on October 31st, ABCs of Death 2 offers up 26 brand spankin’ new ways to die, with submissions directed by the likes of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary), E.L. Katz (Cheap Thrills) and Vincenzo Natali (Splice).
While we wait for the release, check out the red band trailer for the sequel below, which gives you just a small taste of the madness to come. Put on your raincoats, my friends, because things are about to get messy!
