'ABCs of Death 2' Red Band Trailer: Horror at Its Most NSFW

EDIT
|

The 'ABCs of Death 2' trailer is not something you want to watch at work. Well, unless your workplace is cool with botched decapitations, exploding heads, massive male organs and other images that will be burned into your brain with the force of a hot iron. Then again, you shouldn't expect anything less from the 'ABCs of Death' series, which goes out of its way to be extreme, unpleasant, and, for a certain group of horror nuts, really fun.

2012's 'The ABCs of Death' gave 26 different directors from around the world a letter from the alphabet and a few minutes to showcase some kind of grisly death. Some segments were revolting. Some were hilarious. Some were great. Some were terrible. It was a horror anthology unlike any other, showcasing 26 unique voices operating from wildly different cultures.

'ABCs of Death 2' doesn't look like it's changing the format up too much -- it's just showcasing a completely new line-up of filmmakers, many of whom will only be known to hardcore genre fans. We expect the sequel will operate very much like the first one. Some stories won't work and some will. And that's great! These movies are more like go-for-broke experiments meant to be experienced with a crowd than actual movies.

Here's the official synopsis for the film:

ABC’s OF DEATH 2 is the follow-up to the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning from Nigeria to UK to Brazil and everywhere in between. It features segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. The film is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death.
