After the relentlessly inventive horror mix of ABCs of Death, fans have been waiting eagerly for news of the sequel. Finally, Magnet Releasing have made their list of scare-loving directors for ABCs of Death 2 public - but there's one empty spot on the team.
Utilising the technique that unearthed new horror director Lee Hardcastle for the last ABCs of Death outing, producers Ant Timpson and Tim league have released this video promo with details of how you could become director number 26.
Do you want to 'create your own tale of death'? Hardcastle certainly thinks it's a great ride to be on, saying, 'I won and it changed my bleeding life!' If it is you who will invent the 26th way to die, you will be in fantastic, if pretty terrifying, company.
The 25 new directors for ABCs of Death 2 include , , Todd Rohal, , Erik Matti, , , Kristina Buozyte, , , and , and , , E.L. Katz, Aharon Keshales, , Lancelot Imausen, and Julian Barrett of hit British alt-comedy, The Mighty Boosh.
The roster of the damned samples many areas of the globe, from Lithuania with Kristina Buozyte to Brazilian shock-jock Dennison Ramalho to Japan via auteur Sion Sono. I am particularly excited about Jen and Sylvia Soska being involved, having successfully freaked out audiences with their blood-soaked surgical perversity, American Mary. Fans of the new French extremity movement will be delighted to see Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo on the list, but will have to wait in terror to see if their new short will come close to the visceral horror of their movies Inside and Livid.
The ABCs of Death 2 is expected to be released in 2014.
