Twenty-six directors have each been assigned a letter of the alphabet and instructed to make a short horror movie in any way they saw fit as long as it had something to do with the subject of death. The complied "chapters" is the anthology feature, The ABC's of Death. In a way it's very much like 2006's Paris, je t'aime in which various directors came together to make a feature length movie in eighteen vignettes all taking place in section Paris.

It should be noted that the segment for the letter "T" is actually the result of an online contest where amateur filmmakers could submit their short film for consideration to be included. The candidates were presented online and viewers could submit votes to help sway the decision. The result was the UK's Lee Hardcastle whose gory claymation "T is for Toilet" made the final cut.

The movie is being distributed by Drafthouse Films, the film distribution company owned by movie theater company Alamo Drafthouse. It will make it's first appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 14th and then later in wide release on Novemeber 2nd, curiously after Halloween given the nature of the material.
