I have not seen the first one to make comparisons, but I did enjoy the originality of many of the skits. There are 26 different comedy-horror episodes each using a letter of the alphabet. I gave myself 3 guesses for each episode, and in one instance gave myself credit for a derivation of the word. I managed to get 9 out of 26. B,V, and X were easy to guess. P is cleverly impossible. Some episodes are better than others. Some were not great, but enjoyed because of the uniqueness of the tale, something which lacks in modern horror.

Guide: F-bombs and Nudity.

More letters, more death

Actually the same letters, I reckon more words would have been more apt and correct. But that aside as with the first Abcs and of course other anthology movies, this has quite the ups and downs. It starts off with a bang (first segment with the letter A), which might indeed be one of the best entries in there. What I love here, is the fact that they only reveal the words after the shorts are over.

As the quality varies, so does the violence. Some are almost unbearable to watch, others are more aimed at psychological horror. One things is for sure: you cannot be squeamish and cannot have issues with blood and inner organds being displayed ... explicitly.

Exactly the same concept as before, only not as good.

Another collection of twenty-six horror shorts from twenty-six very different directors, The ABCs of Death 2 is, once again, an extremely mixed bag, in subject matter and in style. With such a varied range of work, it's likely there'll be something to intrigue most adventurous horror fans, but be prepared to wade through an awful lot of nonsense to get to the good stuff.

A is for Amateur, directed by E.L. Katz, kicks off proceedings in fine form. This segment follows an accident prone hired killer who successfully carries out his latest hit, even if it doesn't happen quite how he had imagined. Expertly told, with an unexpected twist and a deliciously dark sense of humour, this was easily my favourite part of the whole film—a shame because that meant that everything that followed was a disappointment by comparison.

The best of the rest:

C is for Capital Punishment (directed by Julian Gilbey), which effectively highlights the potential failings of the death penalty and boasts a really brutal decapitation.

G is for Grandad (Jim Hosking): seriously warped fun that sees a young man taunted by his grandfather, who just happens to have no penis!

M is for Masticate, a stylish zombie short filmed almost entirely in slow-motion.

V is for Vacation: a man regrets calling his girlfriend when his friend grabs the phone and shows her what they have really been up to while on vacation.

W is for Wish: two boys wish themselves into the World of Zorb, the fantasy setting for a popular range of toys. It isn't as much fun as they expected.

Z is for Zygote, which sees a woman delaying giving birth for 13 years, the child growing inside her until there is no more room. In order to create more space, the kid removes her mothers internal organs and bones. Nice 'n' grisly with a really twisted finish.

The absolute dregs:

H is for Headgame: director Bill Plympton delivers an animated short that looks like an excerpt from his 1988 film 'How To Kiss'. Yawn!

L is for Legacy, directed by Lancelot Oduwa Imasuen: Nigerian movie-making at it's most amateurish.

P is for P-P-P-P SCARY!: No… P is for P-P-P-P S**T!

What was the point?:

N is for Nexus: seriously, what was the point?

What the hell was that all about?:

Y is for Youth: seriously, what the hell was that all about?
