There is a new trailer for Magnet Releasing’s horror anthology “XX,” which is sure to get you excited for the upcoming release in a few weeks. The anthology comes from filmmakers Jovanka Vuckovic (THE CAPTURED BIRD), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Roxanne Benjamin (SOUTHBOUND), and Karyn Kusama (THE INVITATION, GIRLFIGHT).
The new horror-anthology is set to open in theaters and on VOD on February 17, 2017 and will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this winter. You can watch the official trailer below, thanks to an early upload from the studio on the official YouTube page.
Magnet Releasing offered up the trailer as a tease before the Sundance premiere, and even though the project does have four directors, the plots offer simple, yet-twisted, tales with horror and chills. The film stars Natalie Brown, Melanie Lynskey, Breeda Wool and Christina Kirk and will be rated R. More previews will most likely be released after the film’s premiere at Sundance, but you can get a pretty good idea of how the stories will be presented from the trailer below.
The film itself features an all-female helmed horror anthology, featuring four dark tales written and directed by terrific up-and-coming filmmakers.
Annie Clark (St. Vincent) offers her directorial debut with “THE BIRTHDAY PARTY”; Karyn Kusama (THE INVITATION, GIRLFIGHT) exorcises “HER ONLY LIVING SON”; Roxanne Benjamin (SOUTHBOUND) worked on “DON’T FALL”; and Jovanka Vuckovic (THE CAPTURED BIRD) wants to introduce you to “THE BOX”. Here is the trailer.
Award-winning animator Sofia Carrillo (LA CASA TRISTE) wraps together four suspenseful stories of terror featuring a perfect cast, and the film will most likely be a popular installment at the festival this year. Horror-hits can do extremely well at Sundance, Robert Eggers’ debut hit “The Witch” was a terrific success back in 2015. That film was set in a Puritan New England and went on to make over $40M for A24 a year later.
If you need to set a winter-reminder, XX will open in select theaters and on VOD on February 17.
