After many years of working on other projects, Ti West is finally back with a new horror film. The new movie, “X”, is an unorthodox setup for a throwback 1970s horror film. A film crew heads to an isolated Texas farm to shoot p*rn while trying to avoid the suspicions from host elders. There will likely be sexual assault, and there’s blood. Xpremiered on the 13th of March in SXSW. SXSW Film Festival. The reviews are out. What do critics think of West’s latest film?

X Reviews Are Online

In taking the time to go to the top stuff’ West turns the entire film into ‘the most enjoyable, and the stakes put in motion are paid off for everyone. When horror lovers finally reach the blood and gore of X and X, they’ll be content to be aware of the outcome before playing the game because the final product is all the more enjoyable due to that method.

Owen Gleiberman of Variety says that Xsucceeds in a way that many films are trying to replicate The Texas Chain Saw Massacre do not. It’s not just a cheap imitative but a genuine one. The review states that “X is a tribute to the band with “genuine attitude, ability and taste”:

“X” is a sly and fun slow-motion journey of terror that is rewarded with shocking moments, as well as its unique queasiness factor, that is because the demons in this film are ancient human beings with a touch of…humanity. West as a filmmaker, can rewrite tropes in a manner that speaks of the age which was to come.

David Crow of Den of Geek shares the same opinion as other reviews that the song of a different era of horror can keep viewers in a state of discomfort by omitting its most horrifying images until the audience is no longer would

This film recently saw its world premiere during SXSW Film Festival, had its world premiere at SXSW Festival of Film, definitely isn’t opposed to exploitation, enjoying every beautiful 16mm square frame of the film within the film, but to think of it as being merely a collection of base elements is to miss the most intriguing concepts in its initial two (superior) scenes. Based on the concept in “Debbie Does Dallas… and then suffers an existential crisis regarding her mortality,” X is an intentionally chaotic experiment that mixes the styles and tones. While it’s not always paid off, it can yield intriguing outcomes.

Patrick Cavanaugh of ComicBook.com rates X an excellent 5 out of 5 and praises Ti West for making his comeback to horror films by making one of the top film horrors of this year. Probably West’s finest work to date:

Although the film certainly tackles intriguing themes such as the ageing process and mortality, it does offer some disturbing and classic horror images. While, as is the case with the track record of West, it can take an entire hour before anything violent happens. This allows viewers to be a part of the story and believe that they’ll ever create this film, but then they are forced to remember that, however unique it may be, it’s still a horror film.

Meagan Navarro from Bloody Disgusting Rates the film 4.5 skulls for 5 out of 5. Ti West’s surprisingly simple plot leads to a go-for-broke horror comedy that makes you shiver in both laughter and intense tension. What about the killings?

X is a rousing doozy in terms of brutal bloodletting and killings. Certain deaths can make you feel sick, while others leave you laughing with joy. It’s all extremely satisfying.

Critics seem to agree with the film being a violent, bloody, expertly executed tribute to horror slashers. If you’re a lover of this genre and want to experience it, you can see the film in theatres on a Friday, beginning on the 18th of March. Be sure to look at the 2022 Release Calendar to find out which other movies are scheduled to release shortly.
