THE ABCS OF DEATH is a collection of 26 short films looking at the subject of death.

Violence

Scenes include decapitation and the severing of limbs, boiling water being poured over a man's head, a man being cut apart with a chainsaw, and a sequence in which a woman uses a carving knife and razor to cut her body into her ideal shape in gory fashion.

In one short film, it is implied that a young boy is being raped although this is not shown on screen. Two men are encouraged to masturbate over what they are watching, although one simply vomits in disgust. In another film a woman wears a gigantic prosthetic penis. We see ejaculation from the fake penis and then a blade shoots from the tip of the penis. It is implied that the blade penetrates another woman, although nothing is shown other than a spurt of blood and blood on the woman's clothing.

Sex

A man masturbates to online pornography, a couple are shown having sex, there is implied cunnilingus and the suggestion of asphyxiation with a leather belt during sex. There is also sight of erect penises and simulated ejaculation.

Drugs

People are shown snorting cocaine, and powder is seen being cooked and injected into a woman's arm.

There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t') and use of strong language ('f**k').
