The first trailer has been released for the horror anthology film XX. This is a unique horror movie project as it's driven by four women directors. When talking about the importance of the project, producer Todd Brown said:
“One of the givens of so many horror films has been the objectification of young women, and we thought it was time for a different approach to scaring audiences and letting the female voice be heard.”
The result looks awesomely creepy! There are some crazy looking stories in this movie and they come along with some wonderfully nightmarish visuals. The film is set to screen at Sundance later this month and it's on my list of must-see films while I'm there. Here's the synopsis for the film including the names of the directors and the title of the film that each one directs in the anthology.
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.
XX hits theaters and VOD platforms on February 17th.
