Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student's disappearance.
During the 'Y is for Youth' segment, the language spoken is Japanese meaning the audience is given subtitles for the foreign speech. However, there is a misspelling of the word 'somewhere' within the subtitles. The line reads:

More miss than hit, again
More miss than hit, again.
The first ABCs of Death was a novel concept but the result was a mixed bag.
The idea of both movies is that 26 different directors each take one letter of the alphabet, and make a short (4-5 minute) death-themed story on it. Segments are shown in order, ie from A to Z, and end with "(whatever) letter is for (something)'.
Nice idea, but the execution didn't quite measure up to the concept. The short stories vary from very clever and interesting to incredibly stupid. Some are clearly made just with shock value, and no narrative, in mind.
ABCs of Death 2 is slightly better than the first movie, but now the novelty has worn off. There are some great little stories - B (directed by and starring Julian Barratt, of The Might Boosh fame) is funny and interesting and C makes a very good point in a very short space of time.
Less incredibly stupid stories than the first one, but not much more good ones either.
Overall: so-so. More bad stories than good.
