Synopsis

A horror anthology helmed by four female directors.

The Box, directed by Jovanka Vukovic, is an adaptation of a short story by Jack Ketchum. Just before Christmas in New York City, a little boy (Peter DaCunha) is curious about a gift box carried by a stranger. After he gets a peek inside, the boy begins behaving strangely.

Annie Clark directed The Birthday Party, starring Melanie Lynskey as a mother panicking while trying to throw the perfect birthday party for her seven-year-old daughter — everything goes wrong, especially when she finds her husband dead.

Roxanne Benjamin helmed Don’t Fall, about college students who go on a camping trip that gets violent when they wander into a a stretch of sacred desert.

Finally, Karyn Kusama offers up Her Only Living Son. This time, a mother is trying to make plans for her son's birthday, only to have him ruin her plans at each turn.

  • 1 star "I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've seen scarier Porky Pig cartoons. This is what happens when you build a film around an empty gimmick instead of quality storytelling. Insulting dross."
  • 1 star "Nothing new (or good) here. Who cares about the gender of the filmmakers? All that matters is whether the film is good or not. This is not good. Nothing of quality or innovation here. It sucked."
  • 5 stars "It was fun, loved the scenes in between. If you are looking for fun horror with all female directors - worth watching!"
