Recently, Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures, and Timpson Films pulled together 25 directors, including Angela Bettis (Roman), Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse), Srdjan Spasojevic (A Serbian Film), and Jason Eisner (Hobo With A Shotgun) to create 25 films about death.
The Directors were given full creative license to choose a word starting with a letter of the alphabet i.e. “A is for ___” and run with it.
From the website:
The ABC’s OF DEATH is an ambitious anthology film featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational ABC books, the motion picture is comprised of 26 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 snapshot of the diversity of modern horror. Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures, and Timpson Films are proud to present this alphabetical arsenal of destruction orchestrated by what Fangoria calls “a stunning roll call of some of the most exciting names in horror across the world.” – Drafthouse Films
Considering there are 26 letters in the alphabet – Drafthouse films held a contest for independent directors to be able to have a spot in the anthology. After hundreds of submissions and public voting – T is for Toilet proved to be the shit (badump-pssh).
T is for Toilet is a terrifying tale about a boy using the toilet for the first time by himself, and all the horror that ensues by indie claymation artist and director Lee Hardcastle.
