Are You The Next Great Horror Director? Be the 26th Filmmaker in ABCs OF DEATH!

It was announced this past May that Drafthouse Films, Ant Timpson and Magnet Releasing would partner to unleash a new feature anthology horror film comprised of 26 episodes directed by today's leading genre film directors titled THE ABCs OF DEATH. Each director has been assigned a different letter of the alphabet to form a word of their choice inspiring a story about death. Now currently in pre-production with 25 directors signed on, including Ti West (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) and Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN), the film's 26th slot is reserved for a contest to find the next great horror filmmaker of tomorrow.

The contest is now open for submissions with an October 1st deadline and is specifically for the letter "T" (i.e. "T is for Taser," "T is for Torment"). The winner, whose submission must adhere to the guildlines outined here, is elligable for a $5,000 prize. Judging for the contest will be initially based on online votes and the leading ten will be analyzed by THE ABCs OF DEATH's 25 directors to hand pick a winner.

This is your chance to have your work in a feature film, the chance for your work to be evaluated by 25 of the leading talents in genre cinema today, to be $5,000 richer and to be crowned the next great horror director.
