Latest Horror Feature From A24 Brings The ‘X’ Factor

by Thomas Tuna

Making risqué movies can be risky business.

A new horror entry–simply titled X–about a group of young filmmakers shooting an adult movie shows what can happen when you pick the wrong backlot for your flick. Check out the frightening trailer, courtesy of, on this page.

The film–written and directed by Ti West (The House of the DevilThe Innkeepers) for A24 (Lamb)–follows the wanna-be movie moguls as they set out to make their adult film in rural Texas, “but when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast find themselves fighting for their lives,” according to the official synopsis.

The horror movie–which arrives in theaters March 18 with the ominous tagline, “Dying to show you a good time”–boasts a strong genre cast, including Jenna Ortega (the new Scream), Mia Goth (Suspira), Scott Mescudi (Don’t Look Up), Martin Henderson (The Ring), Owen Campbell (Super Dark Times), Brittany Snow (Prom Night) and Stephen Ure (The Lord of the Rings).

In case there was any doubt, X is rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language.” That just about covers it.
