Horror anthology sequel ABCs of Death 2 delivers a second slate of 26 fatality-featuring short films overseen by an array of directors, which, this time around, includes Evan Katz (Cheap Thrills), Larry Fessenden (Beneath), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, See No Evil 2), Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice), and Julian Barratt, from cult British comedy duo The Mighty Boosh. But one of the film’s highlights comes very early with its opening credit sequence, an animated riff on the children’s books which inspired the franchise in the first place.

ABCs of Death 2 is now available on VOD and will open in select theaters on Oct. 31. Below, see that twisted opening credit sequence (which features animation by Wolfgang Matzl and music composed by Andre Roessler) as well as the film’s similarly mayhem-filled trailer.
