X is a horror movie written and directed by Ti West, starring Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow and Mia Goth.
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 elderly couple who own the house the movie is being filmed in, and things are about to take a bizarre turn.
In spite of it not being a masterpiece, it does have its quirkiness. The story is unfolds in an unexpected and interesting way. It has many well thought out cinematic references. It is well filmed movie, with creative editing, it is a horror movie worth watching. Will there be a sequel?
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 statusRobert 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.Owen Gleiberman: Variety
