In recent times we have seen a resurgence in the humble anthology film, from works such as the V/H/S and ABCs of Death film series and even further afield with Three Extremes, but now it comes the turn of the ladies and basically this is going to be off the freakin’ hook!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Films are set to unleash an all-female directed horror anthology entitled XX. Each segment will not only be directed by a woman, but the segments will each feature a female lead.
The directors included in the anthology are some of the best of our time, the line up is as follows; Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body) , sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary) and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird).
The segments will be linked by work from stop-motion animator Sofia Carrillo, who will also create the film’s title sequence.
Each of the female filmmakers will create their own stories, and considering the talent involved in this one, we all know we are going to be in for a treat. I guess all we can do now is wait patiently for these twisted filmmakers to give us something truly unique and terrifying, well, hopefully.
