WATCH: Trailer arrives for XX, a new horror anthology made by women… and it’s scary stuff!

January 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments


We’re not going to lie, this trailer for XX, the new horror anthology written and directed by women, is bloody scary stuff.

The anthology features three stories, The Birthday Party, Her Only Living Son, The Box and Don’t Fall and from the trailer each one (but especially Don’t Fall) seem to deliver loads in the spinechilling category.

The anthology hits cinema and on demand on February 17th so you get to choose where you get scared. Sweet deal.

All kinds of skin-crawlingly creepy stuff is afoot in the first trailer for XX, a horror anthology entirely written and directed by women. The film, which is premiering at Sundance this month, features work from four filmmakers. The Invitation’s Karyn Kusama is the veteran of the group, while Annie Clark is the newcomer among them, at least in this field. Clark, mind you, is better known as rock star St. Vincent, but she makes her directorial debut here with The Birthday Party, starring Melanie Lynskey. The other two entries are by Roxanne Benjamin and Jovanka Vuckovic. This first look at the film previews a boy who won’t eat, a kid who rips off other people’s nails, and a spooky trip to a deserted locale. XX is due out February 17.

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.

In theaters, On Demand, Amazon Video and iTunes February 17th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
