For me, horror anthologies are equal to the love that I have for pizza. It is like buying a Russian nesting doll of awesomeness. Buy one get more free. Four of the most kickass female filmmakers are out to scare the hell out of you with this one. Roxanne Benjamin, Annie Clark, Karyn Kusama, and Jovanaka Vuckovic have banned together in order to bring you the nightmarish ‘XX.
XX is a new all-female helmed horror anthology featuring four dark tales written and directed by fiercely talented women: Annie Clark (St. Vincent) rocks her directorial debut with THE BIRTHDAY PARTY; Karyn Kusama (THE INVITATION, GIRLFIGHT) exorcises HER ONLY LIVING SON; Roxanne Benjamin (SOUTHBOUND) screams DON’T FALL; and Jovanka Vuckovic (THE CAPTURED BIRD) dares to open THE BOX. Award-winning animator Sofia Carrillo (LA CASA TRISTE) wraps together four suspenseful stories of terror featuring a cast including Natalie Brown, Melanie Lynskey, Breeda Wool and Christina Kirk.
The trailer has some serious moments of creeping-dread. That feeling that something is not right. Right when you are adjusting to that feeling, BOOM! A conveyer belt of nightmares hits you with some intense ‘NOPE’ imagery. I don’t know about you guys but this just got added to my 2017 must-see list.
You won’t have to wait long for this one, folks! It hits theaters and VOD on Feb. 17.
