“XX” Movie Review

I’ve always been a sucker for a good horror anthology film. From Creepshow to Tales from the Darkside: The Movie to 2009’s Trick ‘R Treat, there’s just something awesome about getting multiple tales for the price of one and even a cool wrap-around story if you’re lucky.

Well, here we are in Women in Horror Month and there’s a new four-story horror anthology film directed by four different kick-ass women called XX available for your viewing pleasure.

No stranger to the world of horror, Jovanka Vuckovic’s take on Jack Ketchum’s The Box is up first. If you’ve never read the story, it’s more of a sad tale than a horror tale but is still frightening none the less. A seemingly happy family is riding the train when their son notices another rider carrying a small box. He asks to see what’s inside the box and the stranger abides and from that night on the boy refuses to eat. This story is the perfect opening to the anthology as it sets quite a grim tone for the rest of the movie. Well-acted and directed, a great piece. read more
