If you liked the ’70s adult film vibe of Ti West‘s horror X, then you are in for a treat with the forthcoming sequel Pearl which A24 is set to release on September 16.
The trailer was eerie, fun — yet terrifying. Wes directed Pearl and co-wrote it with Mia Goth, who also stars in it alongside David Corenswet, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland, and Emma Jenkins-Purro
Pearl brings us back to the twisted world of X, in this astonishing follow-up to the acclaimed horror film which was released earlier this year in March. The film follows the titular character as she is trapped on her family’s isolated farm, as she tends to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl’s ambitions, temptations, and repressions all collide, in the technicolor-inspired origin story of X’s iconic villain.
