XX has been kicking around for sometime, but we’re finally going to get to see it really soon. The big buzz over it, is that it’s directed by four female directors, and if I’m being honest, the best horror films of late have been created by women. The genre has grown stagnant, and women have the fresh perspective that’s been sorely needed.

Naturally, there’s a killer lineup here, with The Invitation’s Karyn Kusama directing a segment alongside Southbound’s Roxanne Benjamin and Jovanka Vuckovic. Singer Annie Clark, elsewhere known as St. Vincent also makes her directing debut.

XX debuts at Sundance this month, and hits theatres and VOD February 17th.
