XX is a new all-female directed horror anthology series – aptly named for the xx-chromosome- features four dark tales written and directed by fiercely talented women: Annie Clark (aka  St. Vincent) in her directorial debut, Jovanka Vuckovic (The Guest short film), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, Aeon Flux, Man in the High Castle), and Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound).

Stories: “The Birthday Party”, “The Box”, “Her Only Living Son”, and “Don’t Fall”. Each director shows off her skills at suspense, blood, mayhem, and even exorcism while animator Sofia Carrillo wraps everything together with her bone-chilling animation.

The anthology will premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on January 19th- 29th.
