All-Female Horror Omnibus

Speaking as a longtime admirer of refined, upscale horror cinema (Repulsion, Rosemary’s Baby, The Witch, The Invitation), the idea of four women having directed an omnibus horror film sounds and looks intriguing. Because the instincts of females in this realm, I believe, are likely to be less coarse and exploitive than your garden-variety horror directed by guys. The helmers and their shorts are Karyn Kusama (“The Invitation”), Annie Clark (“The Birthday Party”), Roxanne Benjamin (“Southbound”) and Jovanka Vuckovic (“The Captured Bird”). Sofia Carillo is also listed as a kind of animator, coordinator or showrunner of some kind. XX will open in select theaters and on VOD on 2.17.

    I’m psyched for this as both a horror film fan and someone who loves horror film anthologies in particular. Very cool group of female directors attached to the film.

    This is one of the rare horror subgenres that does have a masterpiece, Dead of Night. Count me in.

      Horror is almost always better served by the short form than the long. With a couple exceptions, Stephen King’s novels don’t hold a candle to his short stories. And Dead of Night is superb.

    A horror trailer that tells you just enough. Looks promising. I’m in. Good one to take my daughter to.

    • That sounds a bit dicey, taking your daughter.

        She’s 28, I think she can handle it? She sounded interested when I told her about it.
