Currently in production is a collaborative anthology horror film, The ABCs of Death. The movie will line out 26 short films by 26 different directors, all centered on one theme: death. Lined up to direct these shorts is an array of talented individuals including Jason Eisner (Hobo With A Shotgun), Xavier Gens (Frontiers), Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police), Srdjan Spasojevic (A Serbian Film), and even famed actress Angela Bettis. Judging from the bill of various directors, one can assume the anthology will be diverse at the very least.
A recent competition for the 26th director to participate in the film resulted in nearly 200 submissions. All of these are currently available to watch at Drafthouse Films’ competition site. Director Lee Hardcastle won the coveted spot with his short T is for Toilet, announced Nov 15, 2011.
Horror fans of all preference should keep this upcoming project on their radar. This creative piece is scheduled for sometime in 2012.
