The ABCs of Death Reviews

Christopher Runyon
Movie Mezzanine

There are some good shorts in The ABCs of Death, and yet they're all overshadowed by some of the most awful, idiotic, infantile material I've ever seen in any film.

Laramie Movie Scope

This is an experimental horror film with 26 directors around the world each making a short film about death. Given the format, it is no surprise there are few hits and a lot of misses.

Far too many bad chapters to be an effective whole.

A bomb.

In truth, this movie is more like a parade of overtly shocking and disturbing images, done almost as a one-upsmanship contest rather than any actual need to say anything.

It's a successful experiment, but like all experiments in their infancy, it needs to be repeated and tweaked before it becomes a standard.

If we can make any overall assessment of this demented Rorschach test, it's this: had this been a real medical study, it would demand the institutionalisation of all participants.

...two hours of brutality, excrement and viscera. Yes, some segments disturb and repel, and many try for dark humor, but the squirms they induce are far from pleasurable.

Shadows on the Wall

Anthology movies are always hit and miss, but the average here seems a bit low.

Collectively they become rather tedious, not so much a satisfying meal as a platter (or splatter) of gores d'oeuvres.

With 26 short segments, it's expected that this horror anthology will be hit and miss. But the experiment is an intriguing one, as the producers gave 26 filmmakers a letter of the alphabet and complete artistic freedom.

Animal lovers will be particularly offended by some tales in this mind-numbing marathon.

Guardian

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).

Patchy but enjoyable, this is an excellent horror talent showcase that, if nothing else, feels like it offers value for money with the sheer number of shocks and splats it delivers.

The overall execution of the project never quite lives up to the concept, with too many of the films feeling lazy and poorly thought out.

Gives a sense of horror movie making learned by rote - at a boy's school where girls have been admitted under sufferance.

An interesting idea, but with so many cooks involved, the broth isn't quite good enough.

It's an idea that sounds better in concept than in execution.
