The ABCs of Death, Anthologies, etc.

Only a few sleeps to go now before the 26-chapter horror omnibus The ABCs of Death finally makes its appearance on NZ soil. Described as an "anthology that showcases death in all its vicious wonder and brutal beauty", it'll screen at the mighty Civic Theatre in Auckland this Saturday as part of NZFF's Autumn Events programme. I did a bit of backtracking to find previous mentions of this film here, and it was first announced way back in May 2011! So yeah, it's been a long time coming. Here are a few things to get you up to speed for all you need to know about it:

The Red Band trailer (squeamish/sensitive viewers can skip it):
Interviews with producer Ant Timpson (Incredibly Strange): NZ Herald, Flicks.

And if you're thinking, "I wonder if Fatso has any of these anthology things for rent?" Why, yes we do! I did some digging into our library and came up with these horror anthos - most of them available for Get Now now:

Black Sabbath
Cat's Eye
Creepshow 2
Dead of Night (1945)
Dead of Night (1977)
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors
Spirits of the Dead
Tales from the Crypt
Tales from the Darkside: The Movie
Tales of Terror
The House that Dripped Blood
