Movies Galore takes a look at director Ryan Meade’s anthology “The ABC Soup of Deaths Rejects 3” from 2015! Warning Spoilers!

Written by David Strege

Abcs of Death Rejects 3

Brought To Us by No budget films director Ryan Meade  who brought us three short films in an underground DVD called Creature Features as well as You Don’t Rent Here Anymore and the Evil Dead documentary Invaluable comes in and thology with six directors dealing with the 26 letters of the alphabet that may or may not have been rejected by the ABCs of death anthology which according to Ryan this project was a revenge project The ABC’s Soup of Death Rejects 3 from the area of Detroit, Michigan.  There was a contest that ABCS OF DEATH creators had put on the Ryan Meade had been involved in, Ryan along with several other film makers were accused of cheating to get votes as Meade was winning naturally so because of creator jealousy they took Meade’s votes away and so he lost to unfair circumstances.  So this project was contrived of the honest film makers that were booted unfairly.

In the beginning of this Anthology we have a couple of mock trailers one for a Grindhouse film called Drop Dead Red where it looks like a young girl is kind of going up against a drug lord of some sort it looks hilarious followed by a trailer for a movie called Bad Milk where I believe Ryan meat goes and drinks from milk that might be expired?  and then kind of a pun to hobo with a shotgun by showing a poster for hobo with a hard-on…

Anneurism

In “Soup Can Scenes” directed by Ryan Meade We have what looks like a house that is decorated with Halloween decorations for Halloween and a man who has opened up a can of ABC soup to sit down and see what he can spell with his letters while he is sitting in front of the blank television screen so while he is spelling these letters  each letter he begins with starts a short film… Starring Mike Willerick.

In “Aneurysm” directed by Ryan Meade A man is jerking off to a porno that turns into a murder the slices and  dice’s to the erection of his mind…

In “BiCuriousness” directed by Ryan Meade Filmed in black and white a woman comes home with her groceries to the sounds  of what sounds like her husband cheating on her… But does not realize that it was someone of the opposite sex and involves a little bit of murder…

In “C4” directed by Raoul Duke Jr.Probably about the shortest film I’ve ever seen and a thought that has probably crossed a few high schoolers Minds about what it would look like if your school exploded…

In “Dick” directed by Erik Zijlstra This segment is a little strange but it shows a man in female clothes smoking a cigarette probably after he has cut off his member and buried it to become what he is now… I’d like to say the only thing that I like about this segment is the blues music behind it.. was definitely different

In “Earthquake” directed by Tom Sullivan this segment is a stop motion animation filmed about dinosaurs where Three Dinosaurs one of them looking like he is one of the king of the Tyrant lizards battle  Denise a volcano that is about to erupt… so far besides Aneurysm this is the second best film on this anthology I think it is very unique it is very good even the little arms move it reminds me of watching Productions that Rankin bass would put together so thank you Mr. Meade  for allowing this little short film up absurdity to show up on this…

In “Fucked” directed by Rob Bedard probably the second shortest on this  anthology of segments here we have a man who has obviously killed a woman as we watch the rape of a necromantic…

In “Gas” directed by Ryan Meade A couple of guys are playing a game of fake out where they create moves like holding up their claws like Bears or snakes and what they have to do is stare each other down and create different moves and hold these positions if they do the same move at the same time they lose… but one guy is a sore loser decides to get up at like one of his pockets of air…

In “Hemorage” directed by Ryan Meade I’m not exactly sure what the backstory for the segment is but a woman is released in a mental ward by one of the guards who goes off on a lunch break and she literally walks into a house and kicks the shit out of a man looking for another man… this was definitely  Grindhouse Style in a Quentin Tarantino kind of way I liked it was definitely some over-the-top acting and it really looks like she was throwing the guy around which I believe was Meade like a rag doll…

In “Internet” directed by Erik Zijlstra In this segment it looks like a man has walked up a road travel weary for there is dirt on his pants and he walks to an abandoned property. Looking inside the place looks dingy but he walks in anyways and walks up a flight of stairs.   on the landing at what looks like an attic or a loft there is a table set up with two chairs, on the table on a plate is a masquerade mask it says ‘Wear Me’ the man finds out that you should never try to meet anyone from the internet especially if he’s on the menu… I like the colors in the segment and the fact that it was a little bit of Gore involved…

In “Jugulate” directed by Rob and Sebrina BedardPretty much a snuff segment we have a man stabbing a woman in her stomach, cutting her tits over and over and  over until she is dead… I don’t really think that there was a Point to the segment other than the fact that the woman was naked and she had a decent sized chest that the man was cutting into…

Kids

In “Kids” directed by Ryan Meade This segment is about a classic where are young child believes that there is a monster under her bed and a tired father has gone over this with his children before probably and one more time goes into a room to prove to his kid that the monster is not there only this time there is… as the film begins with a young daughter banging on her parents door just say that there is something underneath her bed…

In “Legends” directed by Rob/Sebrina Bedard, and Ryan Meade A couple of standing in the bathroom and whoever he is he challenges her to say Bloody Mary 3 times in the dark in the mirror…  When nothing happens she thinks nothing of it takes a shower we get a little bit of a new shower scene and when she gets out she looks in the mirror Bloody Mary again and then that’s when it happens… the segment was slightly predictable but the mask was kind of cool…

In “Mailbox” directed by Matt Smith and Ryan Meade This segment is an animation where I think a man has hitchhiked with another man and there’s telling him all about how he is getting married How He Loves his woman and how she has these really huge tits so I think the other man gets annoyed and tells him to tell it to the world grows down the window so the man sticks his head out Shouts to the air that he loves his woman and they’re just so happens to be a mailbox he can smack his love into…  I have to chuckle at this one a little bit for I have to say seeing the guys had get lopped off in the mailbox and his headless body still circling in the Wind it’s kind of hysterical and poetic…

In “Nagging” directed by Rob and Sebrina Bedard A man is sitting at a table listening to all of the excuses or things that his lady is complaining about and I know what he goes through because my own woman does the same thing and it is irritating so the man takes what looks like bags of milk and drains them in the sink and when his woman asks what he is doing it shows her exactly what it is for…  since this film is directed by Rob Bedard a little bit I feel like this short segment is related to the f segment in this anthology I feel like this scene happens before that scene and that they are related in some way shape or form. I can relate to the stressful feelings at some point I just could never do what he did hehe

In “Overdose” directed by Ryan Meade It’s about a man who starts out with a bag of pills and takes a couple probably to make himself poop, Not realizing that he had not replaced any of the rolls of toilet paper in his bathrooms,  by the time he finds the last roll in the home ends up dying from his own bowel movement…

In “Prostitutes” directed by Ryan Meade This segment is taken a pun  and the ladies of the night where a man thinks he’s pick up a Russian prostitute to have sex with  or be sexed one of the two only she turns around and does what I think some women who have gotten into the trade probably want to do right back to the men who treat them the way they do…

In “Queef” directed by Ryan Meade This segment is another one of the shortest on this anthology and it is about a woman who is talking on the phone while she is going down the stairs while carrying a wheeled luggage…  I think the segment can go out to all the people who talk on phones while they’re driving cars or walking across the streets or pick up the phone while they’re riding a public bus number one people don’t want to hear your conversations when you have your conversations you have them in private not in public the only times that you should actually use your phone is in case of emergencies at that you are dying in my mind or if you need stuff at the store you call your significant other or just to pick up and say that you were coming home or going to work these are the extent a phone conversation I think that people should have,  but never on trains never on bicycles never in cars while driving never on staircases never in public bathrooms You know what I mean…

In “Rape” directed by Ryan Meade This segment is a Revenge film where are young woman lays  in wait for a guy that has raped her, She takes out a bat and a gym bag and follows him into his home and hit him over the head only to tie him up and mutilate him.   I rather like this from because any man who thinks that they can get away with rape is seriously fucked in their head So anytime I see a female getting back at her attacker in different ways kind of like an I Spit on Your Grave kind of deal I have to cheer from the sidelines…

In “Sin” directed by Erik Zijlstra It looks like in this second we have a nun walking through what looks like a prison compound… This one was weird we have a demon looking creature that seems to beckon this woman who is a nun and she walks to a certain room in the prison and she gets up on a table pulls up her shift and starts to masturbate as it looks like this demon is enjoying her orgasm… the only thing he’s speaking in English and it’s subtitled in German I’m actually kind of digging it…

In “Turds” directed by Raoul Duke Jr.All right this had to be the shortest segment all it really has is a man having this being filmed in black and white sitting on the toilet And you hear him take a bowel movement…

In “Uck” directed by Erik Zijlstra This segment was strange but it was filmed in black and white and we see a woman wake up in her  underwear as she goes about her daily routines she is in a one-room Shack as she goes about and decorates the room we see a corpse laying on her bed with a birthday hat on at first I think that it was a lover that she was masturbating over but when she whispered in the corpses ears that it was her father….  damn.

In “Virus” directed by Rob Bedard In this segment a man calls into work he is definitely sick there are tissues all around him and there is snot hanging from his nose… The film shows the stages of degradation that this man goes through in three days… Kind of gross…

In “WhiteGirlzBtripn” directed by Beth Norwowski So in this segment we see a man call some kind of a service and then we see him pack a gym bag full of duct tape and tools with power in black and white and then the doorbell rings.   Two hookers show up and while they are in the bathroom they both told each other that one was going to distract while the other grabbed the good stuff, so when the good looking Broad was dancing for the man the other girl thought that the tools and all that jazz in the gym bag was a rape kit so one thing led to another and one of them got killed…

In “XXX” directed by Erik Zijlstra This segment was another animation it was subtitled and in another language but I could understand the subtitles.   I believe the woman that was portrayed in this animation was describing the first time that she had seen a penis at the first time that she was raped while we heard noises of a female enjoying  getting fucked we see a man in what looks like a doctor’s room or some kind of a hospital room and then the female mentions that the penis was too big for her… this was kind of an abstract animation definitely weird…

In “Yellow” directed by Ryan Meade I think I understand the segment we have a young man who is playing a driving game what’s funny is the driving game is a really old one but in any case there is a  knock at the door and the young woman was there as she kicked the door in, she wrapped a rope around the young man and dragged him to the bathroom and started to suffocate him inside the toilet asking him what his  favorite color was the reason why I say that I got this film is that many men make the mistake of never asking their females opinion they often only care about what they have to say in a conversation… I thought the ending of the film  was kind of comical…

In “Zombie” directed by Ryan Meade In this last segment we have a man in present day Israel sitting on the toilet taking a crap while a zombie is rising up out of his yard right outside the window of his bathroom… It just so happens to be the dead body of Jesus Christ come back from two thousand years of being cursed by the Descendants of this man sitting on the toilet so what Day begin is the Grindhouse battle of the ages… How about that a zombie Christ with Kung Fu moves doesn’t that  beat all. Even though I am religious and I do believe in God I actually believe that this was the best segment out of the whole lot it was quite hilarious and I can definitely tell that the style of Quentin Tarantino is definitely influenced in Meade’s work.

Ultimately I have to say that this was a very fun anthology,   though the acting wasn’t entirely great in places many of the films were entertaining at least to a certain extent and there were at least 4 to 5 segments that were definitely some pretty great SOV moments so I would definitely recommend if you haven’t at least watched this yet and if this sounds like something that you would watch I would check it out.  It is definitely worth a one-time watch if anything else.

Here is the trailer:
