The ABCs of Death 2 directors have been announced, and just like the first movie, the final director spot will go to a contest winner, who will join some of horror cinema’s finest in the anthology movie.
The first ABCs of Death movie was polarizing, and when D-Rock wrote his ABCs of Death review back in February, he gave it a 4.5 score for regular people but an average 7.0 score for horror lovers. In his review, D-Rock praised some of the segments, but admits that others went a little too far.
The sequel follows the same template, with a short film based on each letter of the alphabet. There was already a number of ABCs of Death 2 directors named, and a press release recently went out naming the final seven names, the most interesting to me being Alejandro Brugués, who recently directed the interesting Juan of the Dead.
Here is a list of all the ABCs of Death 2 directors: Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh), Todd Rohal (THE CATECHISM CATALYSM), Steven Kostanski (MANBORG), Alejandro Brugués (JUAN OF THE DEAD), Jim Hosking, Hajime Ohata (HENGE), Chris Nash (SKINFECTIONS), Álex de la Iglesia (THE LAST CIRCUS, DAY OF THE BEAST), Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237), Bill Plympton, Erik Matti (ON THE JOB, MAGIC TEMPLE), Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper (VANISHING WAVES), Sion Sono (COLD FISH, SUICIDE CLUB), Vincenzo Natali (SPLICE, CUBE), Larry Fessenden (THE LAST WINTER, HABIT), Marcus Dunstan (THE COLLECTION), Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (INSIDE, LIVID), E.L. Katz (CHEAP THRILLS), Jen and Sylvia Soska (AMERICAN MARY, DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK), Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (RABIES, BIG BAD WOLVES), Julian Gilbey (A LONELY PLACE TO DIE), Dennison Ramalho (NINJAS and LOVE FOR MOTHER ONLY), Lancelot Imasuen, Jerome Sable (THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM), and Robert Morgan (BOBBY YEAH).
Finally, here is how you can enter the contest to be the 26th of the ABCs of Death 2 directors:
