X (2022). Streaming on Netflix. New to Netflix is one of 2022’s best films, a Ti West horror movie done in the style of a 70s slasher. X follows a group of aspiring adult filmmakers to a rural Texas farm where they plan to shoot an adult movie and cash in on the emerging home video market. Instead, the group finds themselves prey for the farm’s elderly owners Howard and Pearl. The story of Pearl was then expanded with the prequel Pearl (2022). A third installation in this trilogy, MaxXxine, will hit theaters in 2024.
