Four deadly tales directed by four deadly women!
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 was a breath of fresh air to view the four idiosyncratic little chillers compiled in the indie anthology XX...impressive displays of craftsmanship" (Rue Morgue)
"Vigorously challenging a stagnant status quo within the industry, this collection of tightly coiled short films by some of horror's most influential women offers a refreshing jolt to the senses" (Sundance)
"All four segments have something worth recommending...a terrifically creepy success...it’s from creative talents who truly love the genre" (Film School Rejects)
