Trailer For ABCs Of Death 2

Two years on from the first anthology, ABCs Of Death 2 is almost upon us, delivering another 26 international horror shorts in time for Hallowe'en. If you saw the original you'll know what to expect, but if you missed it, here's a taste of what's in store this time around. As you might guess from a film that's a kind of alphabetical Darwin Awards for gorehounds, the red-band trailer below is gleefully nasty and very unsafe for work...

As before, the directors were randomly assigned their letter and given free reign to decide what word it stood for and what their film should be (providing it involved death in some way). The above reveals an eclectic mix of kids' fantasy adventure, botched beheading, hiking accidents, Russian Roulette, zombies (natch), monstrous burgers, stop-motion animation, urban myth and Julian Barratt.

Directors this time include EL Katz (Cheap Thrills), Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), Alejandro Brugues (Juan Of The Dead), Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Big Bad Wolves), Juan Martinez Moreno (Lobos De Arga), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), and Twisted Twins Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary). And Julian Barratt.

"Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational, ABCs Of Death 2 is another global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking," reads the blurb. We don't have a release date in the UK yet, but it's out in the States on October 31.
