THE ABC'S OF DEATH 2October 4, 2014 | 5:00pm
FREE Screening in El Rey’s Theater @Egyptian
The anthology film has long been a staple of horror cinema dating all the way back to 1924 with the German classic WAXWORKS, however, the genre was completely blown to pieces two years ago with the wonderfully reprehensible ABC’S OF DEATH.
The premise was simple: 26 ways to die courtesy of 26 directors. As you can likely glean from the title, ABC’S OF DEATH 2 follows an equally depraved format.
Featuring over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in genre film and general mayhem, ABC’S OF DEATH 2 returns to children’s educational books for inspiration with each letter helmed by a different director, all of whom were given complete artistic freedom to create their death-centric short.
With a diverse and unparalleled roster including the talent behind such work as Big Bad Wolves (Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado), The Mighty Boosh (Julien Barratt), Splice (Vincenzo Natali), INSIDE (Julien Maury), Wedingo (Larry Fessenden), The Tune (Bill Plympton), Juan Of The Dead (Alejandro Brugues) and American Mary (Jen & Sylvia Soska), ABC’S OF DEATH 2 is global celebration of genre filmmaking at its most demented and finest.
“Funny, zany, violent and surprisingly smart.” CinemaBlend
