Ti West teases evil origin story with ‘X’ prequel, ‘Pearl’

The first trailer for ‘Pearl,’ the prequel to Ti West’s ‘X,’ has dropped.

Immediately after the success of Ti West’s psychosexual retro-slasher pastiche, X, A24 has already gone to work preparing for the release of Pearl, a prequel that unspools the unhinged history of X‘s main antagonist.

The first trailer for Pearl is up now. And it looks…promising.

X is a finely crafted exhibit of West’s ability to conjure effective frights alongside character nuance. That film cast Mia Goth as Maxine, a final girl who happens to be an adult film neophyte. Here, she plays the younger version of Pearl, the murderous old woman in the next-door farmhouse in X.

David Corenswet (Hollywood), Tandi Wright (The Returned), and Matthew Sunderland (The Lost City of Z) join Goth in the cast.

The film is slated for a September 16th theatrical release in the U.S. We’re waiting for intel regarding a Philippine release.
