tales_from_the_crypt_joan_collins2With 9.9.81, The ABCs of Death, Sinister Visions and The Profane Exhibit coming, is 2013 set to be the year of the horror anthology?

At FilmFour FrightFest last year we had V/C/R which showed the horror anthology was back with a bang. So move over Tales from the Crypt and Hammer House of Horror, with directors from all around the world getting in on the act, be ready to hide behind the sofa again. Below are details of two of the films that look very cool.

9.9.81 

B9981

This is a Thai horror supposedly based on true stories. Directed by Rapeepimol Chaiyasena. And staring: Patitta Attayatamavitaya, Supachai Girdsuwan and Setsit Limkasitdej.

One morning a beautiful lady, Wipawee, wearing her white bridal gown jumped from the 20th floor of an apartment building. The motivation of her suicide is still questioned and mysterious. It is not an ordinary suicide. There may be something behind the incident. It may involve bad spirits, black magic or Thai beliefs. More than anything, this incident is related to 9 other accidents. Her death could be related to either the man staying on the other side who has fallen in love with her, the maid, her close friend, the teenager who steals her belongings, father and mother, investigation police officer, new tenant, and her boyfriend. All 9 incidents are told by 12 directors and will reveal the mysterious truth.

Watch the English subtitled trailer below:

The ABCs of Death

The_ABCs_of_Death_1

Twenty-six directors. Twenty-six ways to die. The ABC’s OF DEATH is perhaps the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning fifteen countries and featuring segments directed by over two dozen of the world’s leading talents in contemporary genre film. Inspired by children’s educational books, the motion picture is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free reign in choosing a word to create a story involving death.

With each segment going between comedy, robots and clay model stop animation this is certainly set to be something different. Watch the trailer below:
