The ABCs of Death

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.


Lucy, a young American tourist in Thailand, dies after being lured into a kinky on-line game. Her sister, Allie, comes to Bangkok seeking answers only to become enmeshed in a conspiracy of bored young ex-pats, led by the seductive and quirky Marit. They are all just looking for their next big thrill. Allie’s growing affection for Marit leads her to the dark side of a city where no one is who they seem, both on-line and in person.
