Watch: All 12 Finalists in Consideration for 'ABCs of Death 2' Anthology
Back in August, we informed all the aspiring filmmakers out there that the filmmakers behind The ABCs of Death 2 were bringing back the contest for amateur filmmakers to become the 26th director in the long list of filmmakers on board this horror anthology sequel. Lee Hardcastle won the contest for his "T is for Toilet" segment, and this year, one lucky filmmaker will see their work hit the big screen for the letter "M." Well, the film arrives in 2014, and a winner needs to be crowned. Thankfully, the finalists have been narrowed down to just 12 filmmakers, and we've collected all of their shorts for your enjoyment below. Watch now!

The producers received 27 hours worth of submissions in the form of 541 total final entries from over 40 countries (that's three times as much from the first film). That's why there are 12 finalists thins time. All of the above entries will be screened for free at select Alamo Drafthouse locations on December 15th, after which Drafthouse founder/CEO Tim League will announce the competition’s winner with votes coming from the film's other 25 directors.
