The ABCs of Death film concept is back with 26 more ways to die based on letters of the alphabet. A sequel to the 2012/2013 release is well under way aiming at a 2014 release. Much like the approach taken with the first film, the producers are now in search of an unknown filmmaker to fill the 26th spot.
Along with the contest to pin down the final director, the rest of the full director list has been revealed. It expands on the already announced names such as animator Bill Plympton, Day of the Beast and The Last Circus director Álex de la Iglesia, Room 237 director Rodney Ascher, Japanese director of Cold Fish Sion Sono, Vincenzo Natali (Splice), indie icon Larry Fessenden and The Collection‘s Marcus Dunstan.

The horror anthology V/H/S did well enough that a sequel went into production pretty fast, and you can already see the red-band trailer for V/H/S/2 from Magnet. Now another Magnet-released anthology, The ABCs of Death, is also going to be followed by a sequel.
The hook for The ABCs of Death was that the film featured 25 directors (and a 26th crowd-sourced entry) making short films based around a single letter. The sequel will take the same approach, and as with the first film the hook isn’t the concept, but the people bringing it to life. The new crew includes animator Bill Plympton, Day of the Beast and The Last Circus director Álex de la Iglesia, and Room 237 director Rodney Ascher. More participants in the gruesome sequel are listed below. Read More »
