XX is a new, all-female-helmed horror anthology featuring four dark tales written and directed by four fiercely independent women. Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent) rocks her directorial debut with THE BIRTHDAY PARTY; Karyn Kusama (The Invitation) 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 wraps together these four suspenseful stories of terror.

“The feminine perspectives of “XX” create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales.” – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

“A first of its kind in a male-dominated genre, these four short films are signed, sealed and delivered as a form of empowerment.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“That rare anthology film that doesn’t have a weak link.” – Meredith Borders, Birth.Movies.Death.

“These shorts follow female protagonists as they wrestle with exclusion and implicit social standards that may or may not extend to their male counterparts.” – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
