The concept behind the epic horror anthology film The ABCs of Death was inspired by the style of children's books, and the promo art even features the Grim Reaper helping a little tot turn the pages of a terrifying tome. So it's only natural that the film's producers Ant Timpson & Tim League would release a whimsical storybook to accompany the film... a storybook for grownups, that is.

Based on the 26 films in the anthology, the 9" by 13.5" 56-page book sports original vintage-style artwork from acclaimed storybook illustrator Stephan Britt and Dr. Seuss-style text by author Zack Carlson; the creators say it will “entertain young and old alike with its hilarious, heartwarming tales of cannibalism, suicide, and life-or-death sex tournaments.” We're guessing the “young and old alike” part is targeted at extremely open-minded parents... but who are we kidding here? Our kids are horror kids!

Limited to a run of 666 copies (nice touch), the book comes with a Special Edition Blu-ray of the film, which is presented uncut and featuring extras like behind-the-scenes clips, making-of featurettes, and an incredible 30 commentaries. It retails for $37 and is available now via Drafthouse Films, as well as all other major retailers.
