    Tellingly, this horror anthology's finest entries convey how real horror comes in more than shades of red, and how it lives inside us all. show more

    Do your tastes delve into the sick, ultra-violent, and disturbing? Then you may find The ABCs of Death, an anthology of about two dozen short films, inventive and funny. Otherwise, as you consume this serving of alphabet soup, “A” may as well stand for “atrocious,” “B” for “bloodbath,” and “C” for “check, please.” show more

    An instant midnight movie, a morbid mishmash of styles and filmmaking formats – 26 films, 26 filmmakers from the four corners of the horror globe, all making short films about death. It’s not for everyone. show more

    There's no sense of pacing here, as would be the case in a single feature-length narrative in which a wise filmmaker would vary the intensity level.

This is a feel-bad film -- and at times a feel-icky film. show more

    Only Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, directors of 2009’s stylish Amer, emerge intact with “O Is for Orgasm,” a surging montage of fluid colors and moans. show more
