The film XX tries to scare the audience with predictable everyday scenarios from the viewpoint of a woman. I did not see any promotional material for this movie, so I did not know it was a women's perspective. All four 20-minute short lacked a certain twisted element that would make the viewer’s skin crawl. They needed more explanation, but if they were longer, they would be boring because their plots were not fully developed. Another thing that lacked explanation was the thing that was supposedly tying them all together that being the doll house doing weird shit in between the scenes acting more a filler. Each short was okay to watch cinematic wise. The only shorts that tried to spook the viewer was “Don’t Fall” and “Her Only Living Son” just by the grotesque and weird things the characters encounter. Overall the shorts have more potential being dramas than horror films.
