Led by the success of recent anthology collections ‘V/H/S’ and ‘The ABC’s of Death’, a new short film collection comes our way.
MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Films today announced a momentous project, XX, a landmark all-female horror anthology, with each segment featuring both a female director and female lead.
The directors on board include Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Chained), Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol, The Moth Diaries), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body) , The Soska Sisters – Jen and Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary, ABCs of Death 2), and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird, The Guest). The filmmakers will develop their own stories, and each will have a female lead character.
The various segments will be linked by work by Guadalajara-based stop-motion animator Sofia Carrillo, who will also create the film’s title sequence.
Greg Newman, EVP of Dark Sky Films’ parent company, MPI Media Group says, “We know that women make up about half of the audience for horror films, and yet the female creative voice has been nearly silent in the horror genre. So we are thrilled about the new and distinct approach that these talented directors will bring to the project.”
We can only imagine the twisted affairs that the ladies will bring and with Sylvia and Jen already confirmed for ‘The ABC’s of Death 2’ along with Jovanka’s already impressive selection if short films we are already excited for the outcome of ‘XX’.
