Set in the late 1970’s, it tells the story of a young group of filmmakers who choose a small town in Texas to produce an adult movie. This does not sit well with the town’s elders, and things are about to take an ugly turn.

Our opinion

In spite of it not being a masterpiece, it does have its quirkiness. With a lot of references to the movie industry – obviously. It is well filmed movie that comes in the guise of a B-movie.

Movie Reviews

The melding of two seemingly different but closely related energies — those of adult films and bloody slashers — is a fascinating angle from which to interrogate the horror of aging in relation to sexual status

Robert Daniels: IndieWire 

West has many surprises in store for X, but the first straight out of the gate is just how wickedly funny it is (…) Rating: ????½ (out of 5)

Meagan Navarro: Bloody Disgusting

A deliberate, loving, and meticulous homage that isn’t simply trying to cash in on the legacy of the greatest horror film of the last half century.
