The internet will never stop arguing about when it is okay to show films with explicit content to children. But, there is one thing that we’re pretty sure everyone can agree on: showing the violent and disturbing The ABCs of Death to five classes of unsuspecting students is an act of irresponsible idiocy on just about every conceivable level. Columbus, Ohio substitute teacher Sheila Kearns was rightfully let go from her job back in 2013 when she screened the film for her substitute Spanish classes, but the courts have handed down an additional punishment: 90 days in jail.

Anyone who has seen the 26-part horror anthology 'The ABCs of Death' can tell you that it's a movie unfit for kids in literally every way imaginable...which is why it's so amazing that it's been transformed into an "adult" children's picture book. Have you ever wanted to own a book where the most horrifying and violent images imaginable were rendered in the form of gentle, Dr. Seuss-esque illustrations? Then this is for you!

G is for Gimmick
But gimmicks are not necessarily a bad thing. 'The ABCs of Death' (which could also be called '26 Ways to Barf') is the mother of all horror anthologies, collecting 26 short films, each from a different director, all representing a different way to bite it.
