XX: Watch The Trailer For All Female Horror Anthology Now!

Set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in a little over a week prior to theatrical and VOD release February 17th, the official trailer has just arrived for long awaited all-female horror anthology XX. Karyn Kusama, Roxanne Benjamin, Jovanka Vuckovic and Annie Clark - better known in musical circles as St Vincent - direct with acclaimed animator Sofia Carrillo providing titles and interstitial work. Here's how the festival describes it:

Gather round if you dare for four murderous tales of supernatural frights, predatory thrills, profound anxiety, and Gothic decay in the first all-female-driven horror anthology film. Audacious new works from some of the genre's most promising voices—Annie Clark (better known to fans as St. Vincent), Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Girlfight), Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound), and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird)—bring forth a study in the proper unspooling of dread for your viewing pleasure.

Framed around innovative animator Sofia Carrillo's haunting tableaus, these modern myths range from Vuckovic's reverent control of grotesque elegance to Clark's deliciously macabre sense of comic timing, Benjamin's skillful powers of tonal transformation, and Kusama's authorial grasp of simmering psychological fear. 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.

This is a really personal one to me as it's one that I set off to curate and produce better than four years ago now. To say it proved challenging is more than fair and I'm immensely grateful to the huge range of collaborators required to make a project like this happen - Vuckovic needs a special thank you in this regard, as she's been there right from the beginning and been hugely important in wrangling the parts together - and proud of the results. Here's hoping the audience (i.e. you) feels as strongly about it as we do! Check out the trailer below!

Good job Todd, looking forward to it.

That looks pretty damn good.

I loves me a good anthology but I was a bit disappointed in the recent TALES OF HALLOWEEN.

Worth it just for The Box, the short its based off is excellent.

Todd BrownJanuary 11, 2017 12:59 PM

Thanks! Much appreciated!

Christopher WebsterJanuary 11, 2017 5:15 PM

Wait, is The Box in here based on the Matheson Twilight Zone episode? Or do you mean a different short?

Tom KiesecomsJanuary 11, 2017 5:41 PM

Think it's indeed based on Matheson's Twilight Zone story, the one previously (and rather freely) adapted by Richard Kelly.

Todd BrownJanuary 11, 2017 6:17 PM

Nope. Based on a short story by Jack Ketchum.

Tom KiesecomsJanuary 11, 2017 7:58 PM

Ah, then I was misinformed. Not familiar with the Ketchum story. Either way this looks like an interesting anthology.

At this point "horror anthology" is a big red flag for me, but this looks fuckin awesome!
