Consensus: XX's array of distinct female filmmaking voices -- and the empowerment their collection represents -- offer enough thrills to make up for the overall uneven quality that plagues most anthology projects.

The feminine perspectives of "XX" create for powerfully compelling and original horror tales that operate within the genre while testing the boundaries of traditional storytelling and style

A project that I'm glad got put together, but that still has the faults typical of anthology horror.
