YMMV / The ABCs of Death

  • Awesome Music: "Vengeance" by Powerglove, which is the score of the "Y" segment.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: "F" segment has this brief scene of a girl with flaming head - with no connection with the story whatsoever.
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • A given with most of, if not all the segments is that their horrifying nature becomes hilarious.
    • "Q Is For Quack" has the filmmakers propose to kill an actual duck on-camera. Subverted - In the end, they don't.
  • Even Better Sequel: How the second film is considered to be by critics.
    • Critical Dissonance: While the sequel was better received by critics, audience reaction to it has been more mixed, leaning towards the negative side.
  • Fridge Brilliance: In B is for Bigfoot the Abominable Snow Man is only a danger to children who are out of bed...so, he attacks a woman who had just had sex, and been unknowingly impregnated...
  • Nightmare Fuel: Unearthed is from the perspective of a vampire who's been, well, unearthed. Watching it as it kills people left, right and center, before being overwhelmed and subjected to a Rasputinian Death, is quite horrifying.
    • XXL is about a woman who decides the best way to lose weight is to carve it all off.
  • Special Effect Failure: The female police officer's gun in the "V" section is clearly a Nerf Maverick painted black.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The music for the "X" segment sounds like the panicked music throughout the climax of Requiem for a Dream.
  • Tear Jerker: The boy's father in the "T" segment watching his son get crushed to death.
  • The Woobie: The poor protagonist in "X" who is being mocked for her obesity, giving her a body image bad enough that she ends up flaying herself.
