The ABCs of Death was a big, bold experiment wherein 26 filmmakers from around the world were tasked with directing a short film depicting some fatal cinematic insanity themed to a letter (A is for Apocalypse, D is for Dogfight, P is for Pressure and so on). It was basically a gory crash course in how to quickly and efficiently gross people out.
Well, now ABCs of Death 2 is heading toward its world premiere at Fantastic Fest on September 19 (it will then hit VOD on October 2), and so the mad minds behind this new anthology have released the first trailer for it, and it is a very, very, very not-safe-for-work head rush of imagery.
If you look about halfway through the trailer, you'll spot a quote from Movies.com, so I guess it's now safe to admit I've seen ABCs of Death 2. I won't go into too many details, so I'll just share the feedback I gave Drafthouse Films: ABCs of Death 2 is a one-of-a-kind cinematic freak show in the best ways. A delirious, wild, entirely unpredictable sequel. Regardless of what you thought of the first film, do not miss this one.
ABCs of Death 2 plays Fantastic Fest on September 19, 2014. It then hits VOD on October 2 before heading to select theaters on October 30. Horror fans will not go wrong watching it. And look for some more coverage of ABCs of Death 2 on Movies.com between now and those dates.
