Exactly like the first film, the sequel is divided into twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. The varieties of death range from accidents to murders.
A contest was held for the role of the twenty-sixth director. The winner was music video director Robert Boocheck, who submitted his short for M.
The movie begins with a creepy stop-motion storybook that opens showing children doing a variety of fun activities that end up being very deadly (i.e. a jump rope slices a girl in half, children playing ball with a boy's head and a girl on a swing made from a boy's intestines.) Throughout the film, a teacher with a skeleton face presents the titles to all the segments with each of the segments ending and beginning with a focus on, or a fade into, the color black.
In a post-credits scene a man (Laurence R. Harvey) is seen masturbating to T is for Torture Porn, but stops after being put off by the content.
ABCs of Death 2 has a 77% approval rating on film review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes and an average rating of 6.2/10 based on 31 reviews.
