Drafthouse Films has just announced that they are releasing a limited edition hardcover book based on their film The ABC’s Of Death.
A loose collection of 26 short films (each based on a letter of the alphabet) from 26 different directors, the movie was an ambitious and interesting project, to be sure. Although the shorts are pretty hit-and-miss in my opinion, none of them ran over three minutes or so, so there was always the next one to look forward to. The film was released On Demand a few months back, and on DVD and Blu-ray last month.
It is an interesting spectacle that is definitely worth a watch!

roducers Ant Timpson and Tim League are pleased to announce the release of The ABCs of Death, a grown-up children’s book based on their highly-successful anthology film of the same name. With a limited run of only 666 copies worldwide, the book also contains a special edition Blu-Ray of the uncut feature film, which includes a whopping 30 commentaries, behind-the-scenes clips, making-of featurettes, and trailers.
Featuring original artwork from acclaimed storybook illustrator Stephan Britt and accompanied by jaw-dropping verses from author Zack Carlson, The ABCs of Death is a 51-page storybook guaranteed to entertain young and old alike with its hilarious, heartwarming tales of cannibalism, suicide, and life-or-death sex tournaments.
Based on each and every horrifying segment from the hit 2012 anthology film (from 26 of the world’s most acclaimed voices in genre cinema), the disturbingly adorable storybook entrenches the movie’s extreme splatter into a whole new world of 1960s, Dr. Seuss-inspired artwork.
“The idea for this unusual film sprung from a deep fondness of alphabet books from our collective childhood,” says ABCs producer and creator Ant Timpson. “A little digging revealed that the books had a dark history, and that many early versions were used as punishment primers. In a sleep deprived state that was all the ammunition required for an epiphany of sorts. How about creating a film inspired by the alphabet?”
And now, it’s time for the book based on that film… based on those books.
