There are few things I like more than a good horror movie poster, and while it doesn’t wow me, the one for The ABC’s of Death at least has a sense of humor. EW revealed the one-sheet earlier today, and the design — created by comic book artist and filmmaker, Kaare Andrews — says it all with one simple image.

We reported on one of the shorts last November, the claymated T For Toilet by Lee Hardcastle, and the impressive list of featured directors includes Andrews, Ti West (House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Ben Wheatley (Kill List), and Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police). Think of it as Paris, je t’aime, minus the blood and guts.
The ABCs of Death will release sometime later this year.
