MONSTER PICTURES present THE ABCs OF DEATH, one of the most ambitious anthology films ever conceived, to be released in 2-disc DVD & Blu-ray editions on 22 July 2013.


Monster Pictures announced today, Wednesday 19 June, the full list of extras that will be included on the UK DVD and Blu- ray releases of The ABCs of Death.


The ABCs of Death is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film, including the directors of House of the Devil, Hobo with a Shotgun, A Serbian Film, Tokyo Gore Police, You’re Next & four British Directors – Ben Wheatley (Sightseers), Simon Rumley (Red, White & Blue), Jake West (Doghouse) & Leeds based Lee Hardcastle, who with his claymation short, won a competition to be the final Director. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture 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. Provocative, shocking, funny and ultimately confrontational, The ABCs of Death is the definitive vision of modern horror diversity.

This alphabetical arsenal of destruction orchestrated by what has been described as “a stunning roll call of some of the most exciting names in horror across the world.” is one of the most hotly anticipated releases for 2013, and will be released on DVD & Blu-ray on 22 July 2013.
