Ti West’s X Opening Scene

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

We have a rew retro horror film we can watch. Ti West and A24‘s slasher movie X is now available to rent on VOD. To commemorate the release, A24 has shared the opening gory scene from the film. This new trend (not really) of releasing the opening scene of a movie reminds me of a time a long time ago in the"beforetime" when new movies were put on cable and satellite. They would play the first 3 minutes before scrambling the film to entice people to rent the film.

The official synopsis is as follows: Set in 1979, adult movie actors and a small film crew arrive at a farmhouse occupied by an elderly couple in the desolate Texas countryside to film an adult movie. As the day shifts to night, the visitors slowly realize that they are not safe, and are being targeted by a nearby enemy.

X is from director Ti West (The Innkeepers, The Sacrament), that stars Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness, Suspiria, Emma), Brittany Snow (Prom Night, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2), Jenna Ortega (You, Scream 2022, The Babysitter: Killer Queen) as well as Kid Cudi.

You can tell from the clip, that X has a very Texas Chainsaw Massacre vibe. I would even go as far as The Hills Have Eyes. It promises gory suspense. The Blu-ray and DVD will later release on May 24, 2022.
