XX isn't what you think. There’s no porn or anything indecent. It's XX for death, two x's for dead eyes, the unknown, I don't know! That's just my take, but I can say, XX can also stand for weird. If you looked up the definition of macabre, you'd find the XX movie poster. Actually, it's for the female chromosome...
Composed of four stories, all written by women, each part is more bizarre than the next: The Box, The Birthday Party, Don’t Fall and Her Only Living Son. Since I never offer up spoilers or too much detail, this review will be difficult to write. I relished them all, but only one really possessed me, The Box, so that’s the one I based my review.
The Box, directed b Jovanka Vuckovic is impressive. There are no special effects or eerie sounds to make the tale horrific, just a little boy and his curiosity. Once inquisitive Danny receives an answer to his pestering question, he was forever changed. The way his parents responded to the change was convincing and lingering. I was mystified and wanted to know- what the heck was in THAT BOX!
Each movie segment was like that, except for The Birthday Party. It was more humorous, but in a morbid fashion. Each one had something of a surprise involved and I was never bored or tired of them. The animated introduction to XX was crafty as well.
XX released in January of 2017, so check it out!
