Have you heard about THE ABCs OF DEATH Yet?


Whilst looking up Jason Eisener’s stats on IMDB (director Hobo With A Shotgun) I noticed this potential gem was his next project; The ABC’s of Death. The Tagline: 26 Directors, 26 Way to Die. The plot summary on IMDB states: A 26-chapter anthology that showcases death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty. Sounds fun! I included a list of the directors who have signed on and included at least one or more of their credits. An interesting collection of directors here and I am particularly excited about Jake West, Jason Eisener, Helene Cattet/Bruno Garcia (review for their film Amer coming SOON), and Yoshihiro Nishimura. They are running a contest over at Drafthouse Films to find Director Number 26! Here is the blurb…
