Few film companies boast the horror chops of A24 – the independent distributor behind 2018’s Hereditary and 2019’s Midsommar – and its next horror pic, X, has just received a brand new trailer showcasing the upcoming chiller in action.
Scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 18, X is the story of a handful of adult filmmakers whose sexually explicit shenanigans go awry when they arrive at a mysterious farmhouse in the middle of Texas.
Go ahead and and feast your eyes on the new footage down below, but beware – it’s pretty damn eerie stuff!
As you can see above, the movie is set in the 1970s and stars famous rapper-singer Kid Cudi, Pitch Perfect’s Brittany Snow, Scream (2022)’s Jenna Ortega, and Nymphomaniac’s Mia Goth.
Helmed by Ti West, the writer-director behind 2013’s The Sacrament, X appears to be a promising blend of Boogie Nights intermixed with classic slasher fare like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. With its eye-catching cinematography and unique sexploitation themes, X continues A24’s signature arthouse style in, well… style.
From a personal perspective, if X is anywhere near as good as Ari Aster’s Midsommar, then we’ll be in for one helluva treat when the horror flick officially makes its way to theaters on March 18, 2022.
But what say you, though? Were you impressed by X’s latest trailer? Or will you be giving the movie a wide berth? Creep down to the usual place below to let us know.
