All-Female Anthology XX Arriving in February

Posted on: December 8th, 2016

XX - Still 2With the resurgent trend for horror anthologies showing no signs of slowing, there’s one on the way that it’s fair to say a lot of fans have been waiting for. Finally set for a US release in February, XX consists of four segments, each shot by a female director and centring on female characters, and has been a much talked about project since its inception three years ago.

Over the course of production, two of the most well-known directors have come and gone, those being Jennifer Chambers Lynch (Surveillance, Chained) and American Psycho’s Mary Harron. The final lineup consists of leading female genre director Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, The Invitation); Roxanne Benjamin, who produced and directed a segment of Southbound and was also a producer on the V/H/S series and The Devil’s Candy; acclaimed musician Annie Clark, AKA St. Vincent; and hotly tipped filmmaker Jovanka Vuckovic, who directed shorts The Captured Bird and The Guest, and has been a vocal champion of XX from day one.

XX - Still 4Vuckovic’s segment is adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s story The Box, and while it remains a mystery as to which of the other directors tackled which stories, the other tales are entitled The Fall, Her Only Living Son and The Birthday Party. The Box stars Natalie Brown (Saw V), Peyton Kennedy (The Captive) and Peter DaCunha (Hellions). XX also stars Melanie Lynskey (Detroit Rock City, TV’s Togetherness), Angela Trumbur (The Final Girls), Mike Doyle (Kusama’s The Invitation) and Christina Kirk (Taking Woodstock).

XX will hit US screens on February 17th, through Magnet.
