Next month, the new horror anthology XX will bundle four short horror films from female directors. The first look at the quartet of scary stories looks absolutely terrifying.
XX hits theatres and video-on-demand platforms in the US on February 17, bringing the following shorts to audiences for the first time:
- Birthday Party by Annie Clark (also known as musician St Vincent) will likely have at least one murder and a dead-eyed panda costume.
- Don't Fall by Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound) appears to be a good ol'-fashioned "nightmarish thing in the woods" tale.
- Her Only Living Son by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight) seems to be about the gross fetish of one teenage boy.
- The Box by Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird) looks like a story about a chance encounter that seemingly saps a boy's will to live.
So far, the kid from The Box and the were-woman in Don't Fall are winning the "creep Evan the hell out" contest.
An Australian release date has not yet been confirmed.
