Stuart Gordon lists Fessenden’s “N is for Nexus” as one of his top ABCs OF DEATH 2 segments. From TheTalkhouse.com:
“This is the sequel to The ABCs of Death, in which filmmakers from around the world were encouraged to make short horror films incorporating titles beginning with a particular letter of the alphabet.

You don’t have time to ease into your story but instead have to grab the viewer by the throat from the first second and not let go.

And as a sampler it’s an excellent way to discover filmmakers whose work you may never have experienced. Here are my favorites:
