From cult-favourite indie horror filmmaker Ti West and A24 Studios (Hereditary, Midsommar) comes X, a rural Texas adult film project gone wrong. In 1979, a group of young filmmakers head to a secluded farmhouse to shoot a raunchy porno with a clear goal in mind – get famous. Their hosts, a reclusive elderly couple, take a special interest in the young guests, and as night falls their leering interest turns sinister.
A truly unique (and very A24) take on horror, X moves from a porno period piece to a skin-crawling horror flick in just one violent evening. With a sensational cast including Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Martin Henderson, Brittany Snow, and Scott Mescudi, one group of hopeful amateurs will come to learn that fame has a deadly price.
"Crowd-pleasing, genre manipulating magic... While you’re languishing in the performances and period detail, West is sneaking up to pull the rug out from beneath you, or to raze some outdated cliché."
- AV CLUB
"Cleverly genre bending — brings the spirit of the rule-breaking 1970s moviemaking back to modern audiences."
"A wily and entertaining slow-motion ride of terror that earns its shocks."
"X is Ti West’s monstrous return to feature filmmaking... You’re going to want to see this one."
