    Your “ABCs OF DEATH”: S for Jake West

    by: Samuel Zimmerman on: 2013-01-31 18:00:16

    Are you ready for THE ABCs OF DEATH? Were any of us, really?
    With one punchy line—“26 Directors, 26 Ways to Die”—the film announced itself
    as a highly anticipated, highly insane romp through one of our earliest tools
    of education. Attempting to learn you the alphabet something fierce, the horror anthology and
    its roster of some of genre’s best international talent leaves no repulsive,
    splattered, pearl-clutcher of a stone unturned. Jake West, director of DOGHOUSE,

    exposé reminiscent of Geraldo Rivera’s own investigations of the squalor at
    Staten Island, New York’s Willowbrook State School.

    “JUG FACE” (Slamdance Movie Review)

    There’s a weirdness to the circumstances of JUG FACE’s plot that doesn’t quite take hold of the entire film.
