Get your bloody short on the big screen.
We have one month left on our ABCs OF DEATH 2 competition, which means you have one month left to become the 26th director!
Last year, the hugely ambitious horror anthology THE ABCs OF DEATH shocked audiences around the globe with a roll call of 26 of the freshest and most impressive names in horror. The UK's Lee Hardcastle won our Search for the 26th Director with his claymation tribute to commode chaos "T is for Toilet," and his brilliant short was included in the final feature film, played in theaters, at festivals and on televisions across the world.
And now it's your chance! With the upcoming sequel ABCs OF DEATH 2 hitting theaters next year, it's your turn to show us what you got in this year's Search for the 26th Director. If you win, you'll be joining some of the finest genre talent from around the globe, names like Álex de la Iglesia, Rodney Ascher, Bill Plympton, Sion Sono, Vincenzo Natali, Alejandro Brugués, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo!
Last year we asked filmmakers to show us how much trouble they could get into with the letter T, and this year we want you to put your might where your mouth is, and show us just what M is for...
Go here for everything you need to know about The Search for the 26th Director, including submission guidelines, voting rules and more. Submissions close on Halloween, October 31 at midnight, so you have exactly one month to wow us. Even if your short isn't selected to be in the film, it'll be seen by scores, and the best of the best submissions will be glorified on this blog, the ABCs of Death 2 website, the Alamo Drafthouse blog and social media feeds everywhere.
So what are you waiting for? Gross us out, crack us up, terrify us. M stands for whatever you make it, so make it good. We currently have a holy-crap SIXTY entries, so speed your Monday along by watching and voting - nothing wrong with sizing up the competition, right?
