A long time ago, back in the mists of time (August 2013 to be precise), we told you that Julian Barratt had been invited to direct one of the short films which would make up a horror anthology about death. Now the release date of the film, ABCs of Death 2, has been confirmed as October 2nd – only weeks away!
Like its predecessor, the film is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet, beginning with the letter A and ending with the letter Z. They were given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Another TVO favourite, Ben Wheatley, directed one of the segments of the original film.
ABCs of Death 2 is available on demand and iTunes from 2nd October and in US theatres from 31st October. As yet a UK cinema release date hasn’t been confirmed. To watch it on demand and/or to book tickets to see the film in the US click here.
Julian also features in the film that he directed, and he makes a brief appearance in the trailer below. WARNING: it’s pretty gory, so if you’re at work, you hate horror or you’re reading this around young kids, maybe give it a miss?
