The 26th Director of THE ABCS OF DEATH
When Drafthouse Films assembled a slate of all-star genre directors (including Midnight Madness alumni Xavier Gens, Marcel Sarmiento, Jake West, Ben Wheatley and Adam Wingard) to contribute to The ABCs of Death, they left one slot open--the letter "T." In order to fill the slot, they held a contest in which aspiring filmmakers submitted their own shorts featuring modes of death beginning with "T." The winner was Lee Hardcastle's spectacular claymation short "T is for Toilet." Check it out:
