The ABCs of Death
Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures and Timpson Films have announced the full roster of directors signed on to participate in their international co-production The ABCs Of Death, an anthology horror film featuring segments directed by over two dozen leading talents in contemporary genre film from around the world.
Dread recently met with Brit director Simon Rumley as well as actor/producer Marc Senter and just-returned-from-Shanghai VP of Phoenix Films Edward McGurn. We engaged in a rather lengthy conversation, riffing on subjects ranging from Rumley’s hard-as-nails flick Red, White & Blue to his involvement with the upcoming horror anthology The ABCs of Death.
Bert and Ernie (recent homosexual rumors aside) have never done the alphabet this way. Makers of the upcoming film The ABCs of Death have rounded up 25 of the brightest young directors in the horror genre in anticipation of their anthology-style film. They need one more, and you could be it!
A few years back Australian writer/director Andrew Traucki hit the horror scene with his highly entertaining killer crocodile flick Black Water. Not set on terrifying audiences with one water-dwelling creature feature, Traucki is back with his follow-up feature called The Reef.
The biggest horror anthology of all time just got a bit bigger with the addition of several of today's most talented horror directors. Read on for the details, and keep your eyes locked here for more as it comes.
Here at Dread Central we love anthologies, and this bit of news that just came across the wire sounds like we are in for the anthology to end all anthologies as Drafthouse Films, Timpson Films, and Magnet Releasing are teaming to produce The ABCs of Death, a 26-chapter film that 25 established horror directors -- plus a contest winner -- will direct.
