A movie of 26 mini stories by 26 directors, 1 for each letter of the alphabet, centered around death.

So, most are live action with the odd animation or claymation. I think there were 3 Japanese ones, and in all honesty, I expected more. They had like, no horror at all. That being said, there were some sad ones, some creepy one, some funny one, some wtf ones, some nasty ones, some that make me question my own sanity (seriously, I must be completely fucked in the head to like L and O as much as I did).

Anyway, you probably don’t want to be eating while watching this, especially with I and X. There are also some with kids and/or animals, such as D, L, P and Y. They don’t actually show anything bad happening to the kids or animals, but you know what’s happening to them, or what’s going to happen to them.

I actually think I liked it and am all for other people watching it. But it certainly isn’t appropriate for school
