ABCs of Death

We've already seen a bloody, insane bit of a tease for the horror anthology The ABCs of Death with segments from directors like Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Xavier Gens (Frontiers), Ti West (House of the Devil) and more,, not to mention the contest winning claymation short T is for Toilet from Lee Hardcastle, but now we have a cool new teaser poster for the outrageous looking film as well. It's just an adorable photo of a sweet baby being read a cute little bedtime story by Death. No big deal. I hear he tells the best stories. We're hoping this wild film gets released around Halloween, but stay tuned. Poster below!

Here's the first poster for Drafthouse Films' The ABCs of Death from EW:

Thanks for posting this. Just for clarification tho. The redband trailer was for the 26th director competition. It actually has nothing to do with the final feature film. The official trailer has not been released yet but those who attended SXSW saw a teaser for the film.

So, 26 shortfilms in a row, at a length of 3-4-5mins each? Hmmm....

That baby is what's really creeping me out!

this has potential - and speaking of that, where the hell is the sequel for "trick r treat"??? that was a great movie- it was SOOOOOO well done!

I agree...I love when anthology horror films find a way to tie all the different stories together using a common thread.

peloquin on Apr 3, 2012


big agree! and everything else about "TrT" was excellent - atmosphere,'ll be on my annual halloween movie  playlist forever.

beevis on Apr 4, 2012


There's not much else to add but I just had to agree with you all, loved it. It wasn't exactly scary but it didn't treat you like a kid either. Felt like the movie respected my intelligence

Barbara Ruiz on Apr 8, 2012


you know, i don't think a movie has to be "scary" to be a good halloween flick - i thought the atmosphere and stories of the film really captured halloween.

beevis on Apr 8, 2012


I absolutely agree with you,  it's kinds of what I was trying to hint at but guess it was a fail. So where'd you hear about the TrT sequel, I've looked into it but find mostly blogs that mention it which is fine but there's nothing like a more reputable source

Barbara Ruiz on Apr 11, 2012


sorry, barbara - i've seen nothing official on the trt sequel. the film was so popular and there has been a lot of talk from fans (like us) begging for it to happen. my feeling is, with all the distribution squabbles that went on with the first one, i'd be surprised if  a second gets made.........and that's  a shame.

Whats getting me is the list at the top that says from the directors mind is melting trying to think of what the people from metalocalypse, tokyo gore police and hitman will make-not to mention the others
