"T is for Toilet"
Drafthouse Films, Magnet Pictures and Timpson Films have named Lee Hardcastle's "T IS FOR TOILET" (watch it below) the winner of their “next great horror filmmaker” contest, which now finalizes the lineup of "The ABCs of Death," their film anthology with segments directed by over two dozen filmmakers. With 26 chapters each designated to a letter of the alphabet, the film was inspired by children's education books and allows each filmmaker to chose a word to represent a form of death based on their given letter. Magnet Releasing will debut the film in 2012.

Says co-producer Tim LeagueL: “We are extremely happy about the quality of many of the shorts and were impressed with the emerging talent in the genre scene.”

More on "T IS FOR TOILET" and the competition below, along with the rest of the filmmakers involved:

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.

Submissions for the contest closed on October 1st, with 170 submissions from all over the world and over 50,000 votes cast from the public. After the public vote narrowed the field to 13 finalists, the 25 additional filmmakers of THE ABCs OF DEATH voted on the winning film.
