20130121-134416.jpgTwenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters; each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, THE ABC’s OF DEATH is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity.

The ABC’s of death is hitting Video on Demand everywhere today. Yeah! I’am going to track this badboy down and hit it up as soon as I can. In the meantime I caught T is for Talk on Youtube and wow! Bloody and disturbing, just the way I like em. If the rest of the anthology rolls like this, it’s going to be one hell of a ride. Check out the films info here (on this blog), Magnet Releasing (Official site) or over on IMDb. Check out the full version of T is for Talk below, some official stills from the film and a listing of where to watch on demand. NFSW

Checked out V/H/S last night and enjoyed it very much, despite hating anthology based flicks. The film is a grainy grindhouse(ish) mash-up of several genre’s of horror held together by a shaky not-so cohesive main plot. The main section of V/H/S has a dark and gritty 80’s feel to it, though I found it to be the weakest part of the film it does not detract from the individual storylines presented throughout. Each segment is portrayed via found footage compiled on a V/H/S tape and involves different characters and locations. Here is a general breakdown of each story minus any spoilers ofcourse.

House of the Devil @ IMDB

This little gem turned up on my Netflix suggestions the other day and after a horrible experience watching another “suggestion” (which I will discuss in another post) I was hesitant to take a chance on it. Was I ever surprised. House of the Devil turned out to be a great satanic cult based flick perfect for the halloween season late night horror viewing. Ti West delivers a great horror/suspense film set in the 80’s (which he pulls off superbly) complete with all your favourite 80’s bands. There are a few scenes in House that the gorehounds (me being one of them) will definitely appreciate; though it is pretty minimal and not the focus of the film. The lead, Jocelin Donahue is a hottie even though she is stuck wearing those horrible acid washed jeans that were so damn prevalent in the 80’s. My only gripe with House of the Devil was the ending, I felt it got a little wonky and overdone. Overall great movie for any fan of 80’s horror. Watch it.
