The ‘ABC’s of Death’ competition winner announced, and you can watch the winning short film here

The ABC’s of Death is a massive horror project, bringing together 25 of the worlds newest and best talents in horror directing. Each director gets to make a short film based on one letter of the alphabet, and the 26th place (given to the letter T) was created as a competition for lesser known talents to make a short film, and the winning short film would be included in the final product.

Here at HCF  we have been championing David Guglielmo to win, and thanks to all those of you who voted. Sadly David did not win, but a huge congratulations goes to the UK’s Lee Hardcastle whose short film ‘T is for Toilet’ beat hundreds of other entries. Hardcastle’s short can be seen at the bottom of this post and it is fantastic I must say, absolutely brilliant and a well deserved winner!

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
