Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABCs of Death is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived, with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by childrenâs educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six 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.
Most are exercises in sickening bad taste, with an emphasis on human bodily functions.

At its best when merging shocks with social commentary, this halting compilation improves significantly as it nears the end of the alphabet.
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times - March 7, 2013
It's a feast for fans of the genre and a guaranteed ordeal for everyone else.
Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times - March 7, 2013
There are just too many stories to fit into two hours - and even with fewer weak links, The ABCs of Death might have fallen short all the same.
