Critic Reviews for The ABCs of Death
It presents 26 disparate (read: in need of an editor) slices of dicing from 26 directors you've almost certainly never heard of (and indeed, the one you have - Ben Wheatley - feels tainted by association).
Gives a sense of horror movie making learned by rote - at a boy's school where girls have been admitted under sufferance.
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.
Audience Reviews for The ABCs of Death
It is uneven like most anthologies, with segments ranging from scary to funny to clever and silly - and as such, some of them are quite efficient while many are far from that, like "M Is for Miscarriage" and "Z is for Zetsumetsu," both which stand out as particularly awful.
26 short horror films, inspired by a different letter of the alphabet. These compilations are always hit or miss but there seem to be a higher percentage of duds in this one than expected. So many different styles, form comedy to gore to sheer WTF, that there's sure to be something to bore, annoy or offend everyone. Personal favorites were the transcendently juvenile "F for Fart" and the experimentally erotic "O for Orgasm."
