The ABCs of Death Film Trailer Review
Death is inevitable. While to most the concept of death must be avoided as much as possible, others prefer to embrace it... even explore the possibilities. Hollywood has done their share with the fascination of death with the creation of various bloody and gruesome horror titles. 2013 marks a release of another disturbingly good to some with the The ABCs of Death.
I am a horror fan, so this film is very much welcome to my standards, but for the squirmish and the weak of heart, I highly recommend it. 26 directors each given a letter in the alphabet thus creating 26 artistic and gruesome episodes each with their own unique way of how one can die. Like any other anthology, there will be titles that will stand out and there will be some that won't. Specially with 26 titles, there isn't much development like a focused one story film. If you are into blood and gore, curious as to what director from different parts of the globe have in their heads on the concept of death, then it is the perfect film for you.
