See the “The Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time” with the directors from ‘ABC’s of Death 2’

This time of year everyone is splurging the interwebs looking for a great list of films to add to their Halloween viewing. Looks like the directors from ABC’s OF DEATH 2 took it a bit further by naming some of their favorite “movie deaths” on screen. It’s all put together on a nice little video that was released a few days ago. Take a glance at it ahead and see if you can identify the films they speak of. Also check out this sweet little NSFW clip from the short “W is for Wish” by Steven Kostanski. It’s the short that features the curvy Soska twins and was one of the more imaginative entries in the series. For those of you who remember enjoying Mattel He-Man this short is definitely a treat.

The directors behind the 26 short films in ABCs OF DEATH 2 have undertaken an epic project to determine “The Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time” — using no accepted scientific method and zero statistical analysis the filmmakers have each selected their favorite scene, arriving at a definitive list of shocking, tragic, funny and frightening deaths for the Halloween season.

The selections are as widely diverse as you’d expect with a global roster of filmmakers that hail from Austria, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, France, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, Nigeria, Philippines, the UK and the US.

ABCs of Death 2 is the follow-up to the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning from Nigeria to UK to Brazil and everywhere in between. It features segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. 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. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational,

ABCs of Death 2 is another global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking.




ABCs OF DEATH 2 is now available on VOD and will open in select theaters on October 31
