“The ABC’s of Death”

Wow, what a concept for a movie, but what a hot mess of a movie it can be. Look, I love it when filmmakers find new ways to tell a story, and “The ABC’s of Death” does just that, but it’s  all over the place, it’s one of those kinds of films you have to be in the right mind set to watch, whether you’re a lover of art house film or plan to be drunk/high off your ass while watching it.

Directed by 26 filmmakers, 26 letters in the alphabet, each letter is a representation of a certain way to die. Some are more ambiguous than others, while some are pretty straight foreword. I gotta say, maybe half of the films or at least 2/3’s were passable or at the very most clever, while others were just too weird/disturbing even for me. The best ones will certainly stand out the most for you and I’m sure we’ll agree on the ones you think are the best. My favorite had have been the one about director Adam Wingard creating a ‘real-life’ snuff film with a duck, and of course Ti West’s short.

Written & Directed by: Nacho Vigalondo, Adrian Garcia Bogliano, Ernesto Diaz Espinoza, Marcel Sarmiento, Angela Bettis, Noboru Iguchi, Andrew Traucki, Jorge Michel Grau, Yûdai Yamaguchi, Anders Morgenthaler, Timo Tjahjanto, Ti West, Banjong Pisanthanakun, Bruno Forzani & Héléne Cattet, Simon Rumley, Srdjan Spasojevic, Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett, Jake West, Lee Hardcastle, Ben Wheatley, Kaare Andrews, Jon Schnepp, Xavier Gens, Jason Esiner, and Yoshihiro Nishimura

“The ABC’s of Death” is streaming on Netflix Instant.
