Later this year mega-horror anthology sequel 'The ABCs of Death 2' will be released theatrically, through VOD and of course on DVD and Blu-Ray thanks to Magnet Releasing. But sandwiched in between and likely leading up to the release will be Drafthouse Films' spin-off anthology 'The ABCs of Death 1.5'. The new compilation will feature some of producers Ant Timpson and Tim League's most favourite submitted entries they received this year for the upcoming sequels' special 26th spot. The placement seeks a director to submit a potential entry for the letter 'M', a position that was eventually awarded to Robert Boocheck's "M is for Masticate" (below). They received 541 entries in total and have whittled down the selection to the select few shown below. 'The ABCs of Death 1.5' will be unveiled on VOD later this year and will also be appearing at select Alamo Drafthouse cinemas.
And here are the director's and their entries that'll be featured in the spin-off:
Maria Ivanova’s “M is for Mactation”, Tim Rutherford and Cody Kennedy’s “M is for Magnetic Tape”, Christopher Younes’ “M is for Maieusiophobia”, Dante Vescio and Rodrigo Gasparini’s “M is for Mailbox”, Summer Johnson’s “M is for Make Believe”, Peter Czikrai’s “M is for Malnutrition”, Michael Schwartz’s “M is for Manure”, Steve Daniels’ “M is for Marauder”, Zac Blair’s “M is for Marble”, Eric Pennycoff’s “M is for Mariachi”, Todd Freeman’s “M is for Marriage”, Jeff Stewart’s “M is for Martyr”, Gigi Saul Guerrero’s “M is for Matador”, Wolfgang Matzl’s “M is for Meat”, Ama Lea’s “M is for Mermaid”, Joe and Lloyd Staszkiewicz’s “M is for Merry Christmas”, Carlos Faria’s “M is for Mess”, Nicholas Humphries’ “M is for Messiah”, Brett Glassberg’s “M is for Mind Meld”, Álvaro Núñez’s “M is for Miracle”, Barýþ Erdoðan’s “M is for Mobile”, Carles Torrens’ “M is for Mom”, Travis Betz’s “M is for Moonstruck”, Peter Podgursky’s “M is for Mormon Missionaries”, Mia'Kate Russell’s “M is for Muff”, and Jason Koch and Clint Kelly’s “M is for Munging.”
