Twenty-six directors each get a word corresponding to a letter in the alphabet, and they go to town in often disgusting fashion. Some of the shorts are truly classic, others are bizarre beyond comprehension, and others are just bad. Standouts include “D” for “Dogfight” in which some dog fighting gamblers get their comeuppance. I also liked “F” for “Fart,” and I’m not even going to try and explain what happens in that segment. Many of the segments go way, way overboard with the violence and will surely turn off non-horror fans and horror fans alike. You are forewarned that the movie goes beyond the R rating (it is actually unrated) when it comes to the yucky stuff, and you will see a knife shooting out of a large penis. Some of the directors include Ti West (The Innkeepers) and Angela Bettis (star of the very creepy May). You will laugh, but you will near barf as well, so don’t eat too much before taking it in.
