036: X (2022) and Hard Rock Horror
Director Ti West brings us a unique take on the perils of making an adult film in late-70’s Texas. Featuring a talented cast led by a very busy Mia Goth, X tells the story of a group of aspiring filmmakers that run afoul of an elderly couple who don’t react well when they find out that their property is the principal filming location. Dripping with subtext, X should satisfy those who love the standard slasher tropes but want to go a level or two deeper.
In our mini reviews we explore the connections between loud music and scary movies by featuring a trio of rockin’ horror flicks that may or may not rock. We learn that heavy metal CAN be a bad influence on teens, that lyrics about killing people from beyond the grave should probably be taken seriously, and that you should be very careful about what gigs you take, even if you’re desperate.
