One of the best bit of news we got in 2016 was that there was going to be an all female-directed horror anthology called “XX” coming out in 2017 from XYZ Films. Today, Magnet Releasing and XYZ Films announced that on February 17, 2017, “XX” will open in theaters and VOD.
The anthology will be written and directed by four fiercely talented women who will spin their dark tales for the enjoyment of viewers. Annie Clark (St. Vincent) will rock her directorial debut with “The Birthday Party“; Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Girlfight) will exorcise “Her Only Living Son”; Roxanne Benjamin (V/H/S trilogy, Southbound) screams in “Don’t Fall“; and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird, former editor of Rue Morgue Magazine) dares to open “The Box.” Also, award-winning animator Sofia Carrillo (La Casa Triste) wraps together stories of terror, blood and mayhem featuring a cast including Natalie Brown, Melanie Lynskey, Breeda Wool, Angela Trimbur, Sheila Vand and Christina Kirk.
“XX“ will be making its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight category and Roxanne Benjamin, Sofia Carrillo, Annie Clark, and Jovanka Vuckovic will be in attendance.
As one of the most anticipated films of 2017, you can bet that we will be keeping our eye on this one in the next coming months.
