This horror anthology contains four short films by female directors Karyn Kusama, Annie Clark (aka the musician St. Vincent), Roxanne Benjamin, and Jovanka Vuckovic. The stories include: "The Birthday Party," about a harried mom (Melanie Lynskey) who has to keep the fun going at her son's birthday, even after she finds her husband dead; "Her Only Living Son," about a mother (Christina Kirk) whose suspicions about her teenage son (Kyle Allen) prove terrifyingly correct; "The Box," an adaptation of a story by Jack Ketchum about a young boy's self-starvation after a chance encounter on the subway; and "The Fall," about college stoners who must survive a wilderness adventure. Stop-motion animations by SofĂ­a Carrillo provide interstitials between the chapters.
