Four Deceptive Horror Tales
21 February 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Directed by four different women, "XX" is divided in four sometimes promising but in the end deceptive segments:

(1) "The Box": Near Christmas, Susan Jacobs (Natalie Brown) is going home by subway with her son Danny (Peter DaCunha) and her daughter Jenny (Peyton Kennedy). There is a man (Michael Dyson) with a box and the nosy Danny asks what it is. The man opens the cover and Danny glances inside the box. From that moment on, Danny does not eat anymore. Six days later, his father Robert Jacobs (Jonathan Watton) takes him to the Dr. Weller (Ron Lea) that can not find reason for the loss of appetite. When Danny tells Jenny the content of the box, she also stops eating. Then they tell to Robert what Danny has seen and he stops eating too. What is the mystery of the box?

This intriguing tale has no conclusion and even the writer and director Jovanka Vuckovic probably does not know the content of the box.

(2) "The Birthday Party": On the day of her daughter's birthday, Mary (Melanie Lynskey) finds her husband dead in his office. She tries to hide the body since the guests for the birthday party will arrive soon. Will she succeed?

Maybe the intention of the director and writer St. Vincent would be to make a black comedy. However the result is a pointless and senseless annoying segment.

(3) "Don't Fall": Four friends go camping in the wilderness and they find horror in the place.

Written and directed by Roxanne Benjamin. "Don't Fall" is another terrible and forgettable segment where things happen without any explanation or character development.

(4) "Her Only Living Son": Cora (Christina Kirk) flees with her son Andy (Kyle Allen) from her husband and lives in a small town. Near the eighteenth birthday of Andy, his behavior changes and he discloses his dark side. What will Cora do?

Written and directed by Karyn Kusama, the dark "Her Only Living Son" is the best segment.

My vote is four. Title (Brazil): Not Available
