Okay, so Hillary isn’t president, but that just means we need a renewed and even bigger focus on strong and talented women going forward. With that in mind, I’m thrilled to share the news of XX, a horror film anthology with an all-female lineup of filmmakers.

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 (V/H/S trilogy, Southbound) screams Don’t Fall; and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird, former editor of Rue Morgue Magazine) dares to open The Box. Award-winning animator Sofia Carrillo (La Casa Triste) wraps together stories of terror, blood and mayhem featuring a cast including Natalie Brown, Melanie Lynskey, Breeda Wool, Angela Trimbur, Sheila Vand and Christina Kirk.

Can’t wait until then? Better get yourself to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where XX will have it’s world premiere in the Midnight category. Filmmakers Roxanne Benjamin, Sofia Carrillo, Annie Clark, and Jovanka Vuckovic will be in attendance.
