Magnet Previews ABCs of Death in Front of V/H/S Theatrical Showings

Post Thumb:


As if you needed another reason to check out V/H/S during its theatrical run, Magnet has another trick up its sleeve… read on for the initial details on how you can be amongst the first to preview their other flick, The ABCs of Death (review).

From the Press Release
In honor of the theatrical release of the terrifying horror anthology V/H/S this Friday, October 5th, Magnet is offering a special sneak peek at “D is for Dogfight,” a visceral short from another anticipated horror anthology, THE ABCs OF DEATH. Directed by Marcel Sarmiento (Deadgirl), “D is for Dogfight” is one of the 26 shorts from 26 international genre filmmakers that comprise THE ABCs OF DEATH, an ambitious film that features a way to meet your maker for every letter of the alphabet.

Called “the scariest film of the year” by Rolling Stone, V/H/S is a wickedly conceived horror anthology from directors Ti West (The House of the Devil), David Bruckner (The Signal), Adam Wingard (You’re Next), Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead) and the Radio Silence collective. Starting with a group of petty criminals that are hired to retrieve a mysterious tape from a rundown house in the middle of nowhere, V/H/S sends the viewer through a gauntlet of suspense, terror, shock and downright brutality—instantly distinguishing itself from a sea of lackluster found-footage horror films.

“D is for Dogfight” will be shown before theatrical showings of V/H/S at the following Landmark theaters:

  • Sunshine Cinema 5, New York City
  • Ritz at the Bourse, Philadelphia
  • E Street Cinema, Washington, DC
  • Century Center Cinema, Chicago
  • Lagoon Cinema, Minneapolis
  • Tivoli Theatre, St. Louis
  • Esquire Theatre, Denver
  • Keystone Art Cinema, Indianapolis (midnight shows only)

    V/H/S is also opening this Friday in Boston, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco and Berkeley. The film is also available now On Demand everywhere, including iTunes, and Cable VOD; however, “D is for Dogfight” is only being shown at theatrical engagements.

    THE ABCs OF DEATH will debut On Demand everywhere on January 31, 2013, and in theaters on March 8th. The film was well received at its world premiere last month at the Toronto International Film Festival and at its raucous showing at Fantastic Fest in Austin. It includes shorts from 26 hot genre filmmakers, including Ben Wheatley (Kill List), Ti West, Adam Wingard and Simon Rumley, Nacho Vigolando (Timecrimes), Adrian Bogliano (Here Comes the Devil), Xavier Gens (Hitman), Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police), Noboru Iguchi (RoboGeisha) and more.
