There are two movies this year that I knew would be extremely my shit. X is one of them. Now, going into a movie with this mindset is typically a dangerous game. But Ti West, Mia Goth, Brittany Snow, Jenna Ortega, and Co. exceeded what might be considered impossibly high expectations under normal circumstances. We sat down for a (spoiler free!) chat on grounding the outrageous in real life, flirting with exploitation, the many crafts of filmmaking on display, and transporting audiences to 1979. Check out the full convo below.
X premiered at SXSW earlier this week and hits theaters this Friday, March 18th. Check out the official synopsis below, and check out (spoiler-free) details on the already completed X prequel.
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.
