In alphabetical order, this film presents mostly very short shorts about death by some of the most exciting horror directors from all over the globe. The film range vastly in style, in story - featuring everything from clumsy assassins, castaways and killer badgers to bizarre porn auditions, cheapish fantasy worlds and children staying inside their mothers' wombs a tad too long -, in approach - everything's there from live action to stop motion to hand-drawn animation and everything in between -, even in genre - thriller, straight horror, monster movie, zombie movie, fantasy -, and in tone - everything's there from dark humour to dead serious, with a healthy dose of the grotesque of course.

 

What really makes this movie though (besides the very welcome diversity) is the high level of quality - some of the shorts are brilliant, but none is below slightly above average, one really feels enthusiasm in all of them, even those that might not directly speak to one due to subject matter. The only critique (if it is one, even) is that the movie presents a bit of an overkill - after all, it's 26 shorts in roughly two hours, so keeping one's attention up throughout is a bit of a task, but it's worth it because some of the best entries are relatively late in the film -, but that said, the producers simply might not have found a shorter alphabet lying around somewhere ;)
