What makes a film like "The ABCs Of Death" so damn hard to review is the fact that it is 26 short films. If anthologies were already hard to address due to a variety of styles and quality between shorts, this film is the mother fucker of them all. With 26 short films, the variety is massive and so is the quality between segments. "The ABCs Of Death" has a little bit of everything in a scatter-shot sort of way and there will be something that everyone loves...and something everyone hates. So even though I'm going to attempt to digest it down for you below, I would just suggest taking a gander at the film to see if you love more than you hate.
CONCEPT: 26 up and coming horror film directors are given a small amount of money and a letter of the alphabet and told to make a short film that has a death sequence in it. "The ABCs Of Death" is that compilation.
