Thanks to the good people over at Magnet Releasing and Drafthouse Films, we’ve got an exclusive look at their brand new movie ABCs Of Death 2, which opens on most VOD platforms TODAY with a limited theatrical release on October 31st.
We Got This Covered is happy to be covering the letter “S,” brought to you by Juan Martinez Moreno (Game Of Werewolves). Titling his segment “S is for Split,” Moreno abandons the jokey nature of his previous creature feature in favor of a more dreadful atmosphere.
Starting with a simple phone call, the camera always keeps at least two subjects in frame. As expected, the call takes a dastardly turn once a break-in occurs, and a struggle for survival takes foot as a husband can only listen to his wife’s cries from the other side. The above picture captures the horrific nature of Moreno’s short, depicting a husband’s helpless fears and his wife’s unsavory predicament.
In the coming weeks we’ll also be bringing you an exclusive interview with Juan Martinez Moreno, followed by a guest entry where Moreno will describe his favorite cinematic death, so stay tuned! I also caught ABCs Of Death 2 at this year’s Fantastic Festival in Austin, so be sure to head on over and hear about my favorite segments from the deathgasmic sequel!
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. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational, ABC’s of Death 2 is another global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking.
To celebrate the VOD release on 10/2, producers Tim League, Ant Timpson and the international filmmakers behind the highly anticipated horror anthology sequel will be holding a Live Twitter #DeathParty starting at 10:00 PM ET on Thursday (10/2). Join in the conversation and watch 26 new ways to die along with the creators using the hashtag #DeathParty.
