X (2022)

Every once in a while a film comes along that works as a perfect distillation of a bygone era, and X is just that.

Lean, economical horror executed in perfect reverence of 70’s exploitation horror movies, while putting its own spin on audience expectations and overworn tropes on sex in horror.

Camerawork, production design, SFX and performances are all exceptional — exactly hitting the tone and style of a forgotten slasher flick, but with all the benefit of decades of hindsight.

Gory, titillating, hilarious and fun. If you’re a genre fan then you won’t want to miss it.

Highly recommended.
