Ti West first made a name for himself in the horror genre before branching out somewhat after 2013’s The Sacrament, directing Ethan Hawke in the Western Thriller, In a Valley of Violence. Since then, he’s dabbled in a wide range of TV shows, including “Wayward Pines, “The Exorcist” and “Them” but things came full circle when A24 unleashed his latest horror feature, X in theaters last March 18.
From a screenplay penned by West, and starring Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, and Scott Mescudi, X takes place in 1979, when a group of young filmmakers set out to make an adult film in rural Texas. But, when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast find themselves fighting for their lives.
Having amassed all kinds of praise from both critics and audiences alike, West’s full-throttle slasher hit is now all set to hit home when it releases on demand this Thursday, April 14.
