In the late 1970s, a small film crew rented an isolated house in Texas to secretly shoot a porn movie. The elderly couple who own the place will express their displeasure to them in a… striking way.
Forbidden to under 16s
With nods to the great classics of horror, starting with the venerable Texas Chainsaw Massacre, X is shot by Ti West (The Passage, Wayward Pines). Although carried by very good criticism, the film did not manage to find its public in France (approximately 49,000 spectators). Despite a ban on those under 16 in theaters, the feature still achieved a small success with a US box office of 11 million dollars.
In the credits, we find rapper Kid Cudi, Mia Goth (Suspiria, Nymphomaniac), Jenna Ortega (Wednesday), Brittany Snow (The Hit Girls) and Martin Henderson (Le Cercle - The Ring).
X is the first part of a horror trilogy. It will be followed in theaters in a few months by a prequel, Pearl, and a sequel entitled MaXXXine, both starring Mia Goth.
