    Like people already have said, it got some really good ones and some really bad ones. I ended up digging most of them, with U being my absolute favorite and M being the worst one.
    Have you seen U's directors' Amer? It's an incredible homage to Giallo films, that like U, is absolutely dripping with sexuality.

    I'm an idiot. I could've sworn you said O. haha. Fuck me.

      O is the one from the directors of Amer, and yes I've seen Amer. Love that film.

        Yeah, I know. I fucked up there for a bit and thought you said O, but U was one of my favorites as well. I cannot wait to see Sightseeers.

              Y for Youngbuck is probably my favorite segment. I'm a huge fan of Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun, Treevenge).

              The score for that one was incredible.

              Thanks for that list. Now I can rate which ones I loved and what not...

              Loved-D,H,R,S,T,U,V,X,Y
              Loved but don't really want to admit it-L
              Liked-A,C,I,K,N
              OK-B,F
              Hated-E,G,J,M,O,P,Q,W,Z

              Why would you want to argue with Geek? He puts up an argument like a midget puts up Christmas tree lights.

                  [SPOILER]Which one was the bathtub scene where the girl got injected? I thought that one was pretty damn cool.[/SPOILER]

                    Here's my scratch note thoughts on each segment.

                    A 7/10 (good effects, interesting twist, kind of incomplete)
                    B 8/10 (awesome build up, mysterious ending, weird name)
                    C 7.5/10 (trippy concept, doesn't really make sense, still cool)
                    D 9/10 (amazing visuals, cruel and brutal. Kind of odd but visceral and intense)
                    E 4/10 (silly and pointless. Predictable. Trying to hard)
                    F 1/10 (most idiotic shit I've ever seen)
                    G 4/10 (disturbing in a way, but underdeveloped and lacking)
                    H 8.5 (hilarious, surreal, cartoony and violent)
                    I 6.5/10 (confusing/pointless but disturbing and violent)
                    J 6/10 (wtf!!!! I found this strangely hilarious and bizarre)
                    K 5/10 (amusing... kind of stupid and felt out of place)
                    L 9/10 (amazingly fucked up and twisted)
                    M 2/10 (lame, too short, silly, pointless, a bit gross)
                    N 6/10 (amusing and funny, kind of silly)
                    O 7/10 (psychedelic and seductive. Not sure wtf happened but it was beautiful)
                    P 6/10 (conflicted about this one... overlong but impacted me)
                    Q 7.5/10 (bad beginning, absolutely hilarious ending)
                    R 8/10 (another surreal short. Brutal although a bit unfocused)
                    S 9/10 (outstanding. Action packed and with a great twist)
                    T 10/10 (creative and fucked up. Awesome)
                    U 8/10 (cool POV movie. Exciting and bloody)
                    V 7.5/10 (creative and well made, but I didn't follow the plot very well... gotta watch it again)
                    W - 10/10 (ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
                    X - 10/10 (extremely disturbing and absolutely vile)
                    Y - 9/10 (awesome score and cool story. Violent and humorous)
                    Z - 5/10 (overly random, but funny as fuck in parts. Bizarre and completely pointless)

                    Overall averages to be about 7/10

                    A ton of fun, but some segments are pointless and idiot. Some shockingly so. Some are really great. This is a film to watch with a group of people and a ton of alcohol.

                      I'd rate them:

                      A: 7.5/10
                      B: 7/10
                      C: 4/10
                      D: 7/10
                      E: 5/10
                      F: 2/10
                      G: 3/10
                      H: 10/10
                      I: 3/10
                      J: 9/10
                      K: 5/10
                      L: 10/10
                      M: 1/10
                      N: 7/10
                      O: 9/10
                      P: 8/10
                      Q: 7.5/10
                      R: 7/10
                      S: 8/10
                      T: 8/10
                      U: 10/10 - My personal favorite
                      V: 8.5/10
                      W: 8/10
                      X: 10/10
                      Y: 8/10
                      Z: 8/10 - Loved the "Dr Strangelove" parody!

                      I don't feel like calculating an exact overall score using the individual scores, but I'd say my overall enjoyment with it was a solid 8.5 .

                              I liked Apocalypse, Cycle, Dogfight, Fart, Hydro-Electric Diffusion, Ingrown, Libido, Orgasm, Quack, Speed, Toilet, Unearthed, XXL, and Youngbuck

                              Even enjoyed the more boring ones, that just tried to be real. Gravity, and Miscarriage get straight to the point Lol it seems T.I. West always gets a lot of hate, but I enjoy the raw style he uses.

                              If I had to pick a fav. it would be either L, T, X, or Y.

                                This is such a hit and miss film. Anthology films have good and bad segments at the best of times but The ABCs of Death was asking for trouble. For every good segment there a couple of bad ones.

                                However the shorts moved through so quickly I was never bored, so thats a plus. I think a lot of people will see this out of curiosity. There's bound to be at least one film to suit your taste.
