Nine Things About the Movie "ABC's of Death" (2013)

1. This is perhaps the most unique movie of 2013.

2. It's an interesting setup. 26 directors from around the world were given a letter of the alphabet. They picked a word starting with that letter, and then made a short film about that word that incorporates death. They were given complete artistic freedom to make whatever they wanted.

3. The movie spans cultures, times, countries, and topics. Some are more conventional, and some are pretty extremely out there. Some are serious, some are funny.

4. The movie has been criticized for being too uneven. I'm not sure that's a legitimate criticism. We have 26 different movies by 26 different directors. Each one has its own style and technique. Now having said that, some films were definitely better than others.

5. There are some minor masterpieces, absolute gems, sitting in this infernal alphabet. Some are burned into my mind, whether I want them there or not.

6. I'm sure it wasn't intentional, but there seems to be a thread involving toilets, poop, or farts weaving its way through the films.

7. There were more giant penises than I expected.

8. If there was an award for "weirdest film" in this anthology, it would definitely go to Japan. Of course. No other country is quite in touch with their inner freakiness as them.

I don't recommend this to most people - it's pretty violent, bizarre, and it goes to bad places that no mainstream film would ever consider. But for those with more... unusual tastes, this can be a good time.

Okay... The reviews for this movie are all either one or five stars, and I'm going to try to explain why that is. First, a little background about me (trust me, this will help). I love horror movies. I love horror anthologies. I like stupid movies. I friggin' LOVE stupid horror movies. I'm okay with indie films and subtitles and "artsy" movies. and I even like some torture porn. My point here is I enjoy movies.

Got where I'm coming from? With me so far? Okay, here we go, then... If you're like me, you want to watch this because you're thinking it's going to be like either "1000 Ways to Die" or "Alfred Hitchcock Presents." Cool concept, right? Like a bunch of fun sized candy bars. Little short horror films. What fun!

Turns out, almost no fun. Yes, there are subtitles: That didn't bother me. Yes, the "films" are short and have a limited budget: That didn't bother me. Yes, some of them worry more about being "artsy" than being scary: THAT didn't bother me. Here's what bothered me (here come the SPOILERS, guys).

A couple of these were really well done. If not scary, then creepy or funny (I'm a big fan of all of those things). The overwhelming majority, however, were either completely over-the-top ridiculously stupid, and not scary or creepy or funny unless you're a seven-year-old boy, OR just horrifically disturbing. I don't mean "gory" disturbing, I mean "child rape and kitten killing" disturbing. And before someone accuses me of not being clever enough to understand the point: Yes, I totally got it. Horror means more than one thing. Child rape is horrifying. Mission accomplished.

I love horror anthologies but "The ABC's Of Death" is doing a little too much. Its hard to find satisfaction in 26 different 5 minute (or shorter) horror shorts especially some that are as bizarre as this bunch, I definitely would have liked some of them more had they been longer and I'm sorry to say but allot of the shorts are down right stupid and I mean stupid.

I really don't want to give away any of the shorts since they are only 5 minutes a piece but I will give you a few I thought were really below the mark!

"F is for Fart" was so weird it almost made me stop watching, the whole concept was horrible and downright.....I don't have a word to explain, its bad.

"G is For Gravity" was another straight out dumb short, someone drives to the beach with a surf board and backpack full of bricks, goes out into the ocean and I guess drowns? Probably the plainest short of the bunch.

"Z is for ???" I don't even know how to spell the word given let alone explain what the short was about! All I know is that some Japanese girl had a huge penis which had a blade that came out of the tip, it is by far the weirdest short of the bunch!

Those are a few examples of bad shorts, others I felt were horrible were "E", "F", "G", "H", "K", "M" and "O" but I won't spoil them for any potential viewers as I'm sure there's probably a few that could find them to they're liking.
