Director Ti West transports horror fans to the raunchy and sex crazed 70’s with an extra buckets of blood!
A team of hardy filmmakers in 1979 descend upon a picturesque farmhouse in the country to film porn, but “The Farmer’s Daughter” shoot doesn’t seem to go as planned. Maybe if they had told the creepy old man they were renting from what they were up to? Here’s what the official synopsis has to say about “X”: “In 1979, a group of young filmmakers set out to make an adult film in rural Texas, but when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast soon find themselves in a desperate fight for their lives.”
That desperate fight involves plenty of bow-chicka-bow-wow dialogue, groovy ’70s costumes, an axe, plenty of spilled blood, a scary old woman in a nightgown, and plenty more murder and mayhem.
Written and directed by West, the film stars Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Martin Henderson, Brittany Snow, Owen Campbell, Stephen Ure, and Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi) bringing to life a couple of different genres — vintage porn, horror, behind-the-scenes drama — with plenty of style and retro grooviness to spare.
West, as horror fans know, is the auteur behind “The House of the Devil,” “V/H/S,” and “The Innkeepers,” and his aesthetic looks to be in full force throughout the trailer for “X.” And A24 has become a home of late for horror auteurs, releasing critically acclaimed films including “The Witch,” “Hereditary,” and “Midsommar.”
If its A24, expect a quality of film not like any other. Whether its drama or horror, A24 has a way of distributing films that take up permanent residence in your memory and stay with you long after the credits roll.
I personally can’t wait to see this! X is scheduled to be released on March 18, 2022, by A24.
