Watch the short film that got all of the attention

Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures and Timpson Films have announced T is for Toilet by Lee Hardcastle as the winner of their contest to find the “next great horror filmmaker,” which finalized the lineup of their international co-production of The ABCs of Deat, the anthology film featuring segments directed by over two dozen filmmakers.

Inspired by children’s educational books, the feature is comprised of 26 individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were given free reign to choose a word to represent a form of death based on their letter.

The ABCs of Death (official site) will be released through Magnet Releasing in 2012.

T is for Toilet was an early submission to the contest setting the benchmark for future entries and has since become a viral sensation from reporting genre websites and blogs.

UK based Lee Hardcastle utilized claymation to tell the nightmarish tale of a frightened young boy and his first attempt using the bathroom all by himself.
