‘X’ Trailer Breakdown
From the looks of it X is a period piece taking place sometime in the 70s or 80s, stylistically it’s very reminiscent of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or the early video nasty era. In classic horror movie fashion the trailer gives us a look at plenty of screaming women, a creepy naked old lady, a dilapidated house, and a plot that’s surely divisive. X will join the likes of Hereditary, The Lighthouse, and Midsommar in theaters on March 18.
