XX (2017)



Critic Consensus: XX's array of distinct female filmmaking voices -- and the empowerment their collection represents -- offer enough thrills to make up for the overall uneven quality that plagues most anthology projects.

The four narratives ... achieve varying levels of black comedy and terror with an emphasis on women's issues.

March 2, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Two out of four is not a bad average, particularly when the half in question aren't pestiferous enough to warrant a ruckus. Fans of this sort of thing won't go hungry.

If XX is trying to make some sort of statement, it's not doing so with much clarity or power.

February 17, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The feminine perspectives of "XX" create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales that operate within the genre while testing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and style

A first of its kind in a male-dominated genre, these four short films are signed, sealed and delivered as a form of empowerment.

The results offer a collective shiver (not a lot of shrieks here) for those in the mood for sprightly, short-form misfortune.

Audience Reviews for XX


A project that I'm glad got put together, but that still has the faults typical of anthology horror.
