Attention all horror fans who plan on attending Fantastic Fest next month: ABCs of Death 2 will get its world premiere as the opening night film! This news accompanies the first poster for the film as well as a still from the finished project.
ABCs producer Ant Timpson has said this about the horror anthology franchise, “I truly love how divisive this anthology series will be. There’s no grey when it comes to the ABCs of Death. People either love it or detest it. And that is the exactly the way it should be.” Producer Tim League added, “I want people to look back at the ABCs of Death rosters ten years from now and see many of these now emerging directors running the show in future Hollywood. With Fantastic Fest veterans Garreth Edwards and Rian Johnson commanding the Star Wars franchise, this doesn’t seem unreasonable at all.”
The follow up to the first short film anthology collection will feature films by noted genre directors including Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Vincenzo Natali (Splice, Cube), E.L. Katz (Cheap Thrills), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, Dead Hooker in a Trunk), Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado (Rabies, Big Bad Wolves) and Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead), among others.
Have a look at the first still released from the film below. The World Premiere of ABCs of Death 2 will take place at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX on Thursday, September 18. The film has also been announced for release on VOD platforms October 2 with a theatrical run set for October 31.
