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.
The Box (Jovanka Vuckovic) - After peering into a shiny red gift box on a commuter train, seven-year-old Danny Jacobs inexplicably stops eating. When his father and sister also begin to waste away, Danny’s mother Susan struggles to make the connection between herself, her dying family and the mysterious box before it’s too late.
The Birthday Party (Annie Clark) - A harried housewife tries to keep her daughter-and the nosy neighbors-from discovering a dark secret the morning of her daughter’s eighth birthday party.
Don't Fall (Roxanne Benjamin) - A group of adventurous friends get into trouble when they venture off the beaten path and trespass on someone -or something-else’s land on a camping trip.
Her Only Living Son (Karyn Kusama )- 18 years after narrowly escaping Manhattan, a narcissistic actor husband and a cult with designs on her unborn child, “Cora” finds herself face to face with a son who can no longer deny his monstrous heritage.
