The original ABCs of Death, comprised of 26 alphabet-themed ways to die from the biggest names in horror, invited any and all indie filmmakers from around the world to submit their own T-themed deaths – with one exceptional entry being chosen to appear in the final film. The winner of course was T is for Toilet, directed & animated by Lee Hardcastle. Now producers Ant Timpson, Tim League, and Magnet Releasing have announced the twelve finalists in ABCs Of Death 2’s “Search for the 26th Director.” The winner will be included in 2014′s ABCs of Death 2, alongside such directors as Marcus Dunstan (The Collection), Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary), Steven Kostanski (Manborg), Álex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus) and Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter).
