If you’ve already listened to our 2012 TIFF podcast, you’ll know that Jay and I were not crazy about the 26-part anthology film The ABCs of Death. Although anthology films are always hit and miss, this one felt even more inconsistent than usual. Still, if you’re a horror fan I imagine it’s hard not to be curious about a project with segments directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Ti West, Xavier Gens, Ben Wheatley, Jason Eisener and many, many more.
A red band trailer for the film has debuted over at Yahoo!, and it wisely showcases some of the stronger segments; in particular, Ben Wheatley’s “U Is for Unearthed” and Marcel Sarmiento’s “D is for Dogfight”. However, it also manages to get across the very outrageous and eclectic nature of the project as well. The ABCs of Death will be released via VOD on Jan. 31st and hits select theatres on March 8th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
