Karyn Kusama, the mind behind one of last year’s very best horror films in The Invitation, joins an impressive array of talent for the all-female directed horror anthology XX. This film has been a long time coming, first announced a couple of years ago, XX promises to be an altogether bizarre and disturbing anthology led by four female filmmakers. Joining Kusama is Annie Clark, Roxanne Benjamin, and Jovanka Vuckovic with award-winning animator Sofia Carrillo tying it all together. We’ve seen a handful of great anthologies in recent years, which gives me hope that XX will continue that trend—especially with such a talented lineup!
XX is out in select theaters and on VOD this February 17th.
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.
It stars Melanie Lynskey, Natalie Brown, Mike Doyle, Sheila Vand, Angela Trimbur, Peyton Kennedy, and many more.
