  • ABCs of Death 2 2014

    ★★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2014

    It's back! The world's clunkiest premise, the format that both sinks AND saves itself. it's The ABCs of Death 2.

Andrew has problems at home; his mother is dying of cancer, the cost of her medication has become prohibitive, and his dad is an abusive drunk. Andrew brings with him the bulky old video camera he's been using of late to document...…
