Its fully feminine component is just a gimmick, but as a starting point, it is as good as any other. [Full review in Spanish]

There's a virtue in not revealing too much to the audience, but XX errs in too often using the unknown as a crutch.
November 5, 2018
Tthe female-directed horror short collection embodies the problems native to the anthology format - shallow character development, thinly sketched narrative arcs, with short-term investment wielding sparse long-term scares.

The aptly named XX is a celebration of women creating bewitching works of horror. These shorts result in a highly entertaining anthology focusing on different areas of horror.

At present, XX just seems like a tease of the greatness to come. But it's a delightfully twisted tease.

Often striking for its seamless brutality, the film eventually devolves into an artsy episode of The Following.
March 21, 2018
Framed by pretty banal animation, the film as a whole reflects a rather limited vision of womanhood, with three shorts focused solely on mothers. That XX proves patchy is a disappointment, particularly as it is a noble project.

At the end of the day XX remains a curiosity for any lover of horror... [Full review in Spanish]

Just like men have been given the chance to tell a wide range of stories, women shouldn't be confined to one kind of narrative - and in XX, they aren't. That's what makes it so skin-crawlingly fun.

It's pretty by the numbers.

If you're looking for a way to put a spark into a cold night, XX will hit the spot.

It's a pleasure to meet with this kind of works, where a group of women use their talent in a genre that continues to be erroneously associated with leading men, which shows us that diversity is necessary. [Full review in Spanish]

Absolutely anyone who prefers the unsettling creep of dread to predictable jump scares will enjoy this one.

All these films are glued together by creepy stop-motion animation interstitial sequences by Mexican stop-motion animator Sofia Carrillo, which might be the element most likely to induce nightmares.
March 9, 2017
Some of the writing was uneven, but the direction of all four pieces in XX was competent, and the acting impressive was throughout. I really enjoyed the interstitial animated pieces by Sofia Carrilo.

The four narratives ... achieve varying levels of black comedy and terror with an emphasis on women's issues.
March 1, 2017
The end result is a film that arrives with undeniably noble intentions but which sadly falls apart when it comes to execution.
February 28, 2017
...something refreshing and new to say about the genre.
February 27, 2017
XX is a horror film that should inspire real discussion and real scares, and that's an accomplishment.
February 24, 2017
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.
