description

Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die.

The ABCs of Death is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived, with productions spanning 15 countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the film is comprised of 26 individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet; the directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, ABCs of Death is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity.

The ABCs of Death co-director Ben Wheatley’s latest feature, Sightseers, is also screening as part of this year’s festival.

OFFICIAL SELECTION:
