This was 26 short films by 26 directors about death, each given a letter.  I think they made a deal with those directors that no matter what they made, it was going in the movie.

A is for Apocalypse - ★★
B is for Bigfoot - ★★
C is for Cycle - ★★
D is for Dogfight - ★½
E is for Exterminate - ★★
F is for Fart - ★
G is for Gravity - ★★½
H is for Hydro-Electric Diffusion - ★
I is for Ingrown - ★½
J is for Jidai-Geki - ★
K is for Klutz - ★½
L is for Libido - ★
M is for Miscarriage - ★½
N is for Nuptials - ★★½
O is for Orgasm - ★½
P is for Pressure - ★★★
Q is for Quack - ★★★
R is for Removed - ★½
S is for Speed - ★½
T is for Toilet - ★½
U is for Unearthed - ★½
V is for Vagitus - ★½
W is for WTF! - ★
X is for XXL - ★
Y is for Youngbuck - ★
Z is for Zetsumetu - ★

So what is worth it? NO! Two that were good, two that weren't bad, and the rest ranged from mediocre to crimes against humanity.

Overall: ★½
