The Red Band trailer has dropped for THE ABCs OF DEATH, Drafthouse Films & Magnet Releasing’s alphabetic anthology that tasked 26 directors to depict various forms of death through 26 assigned letters. From House of the Devil‘s Ti West and Hobo with a Shotgun‘s Jason Eisner, to Tokyo Gore Police‘s Yoshihiro Nishimura, and even Metalocalypse‘s Jon Schnepp!
The entire concept is enormously ambitious, and the diverse group of filmmakers is more than enough to warrant my attention. Judging from the positive buzz out of Fantastic Fest and TIFF only helped pique my interest, but this Red Band trailer flat out makes this one of my most anticipated films of 2013. See the alphabetic insanity of THE ABCs OF DEATH for yourself below, and look for the feature to hit VOD January 31st & limited theaters March 8th!
Synopsis: “Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABCs OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six 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.”
