Entitled ‘Pearl‘, the horror prequel ‘X – The Mark of Death’opened with 78% approval two critics not Rotten Tomatoes.
However, the acceptance of the feature starring Mia Goth went up to 86% now that more reviews have been added to the portal.
Still, the new movie You West failed to come close to its predecessor, which recorded incredible 94% of positive reviews.
Among the comments, experts praised the performance of Gothwhich reprises the titular role, despite being said not to be as original as the predecessor film.
“‘Pearl’ ends up highlighting ‘X’ a bit by essentially chronicling the entire crackdown and events that drove Pearl mad. But not without its own problems” – Collider.
“Maybe I shouldn’t have liked it so much. ‘Pearl’ how much I liked it: but it’s smart, agile, dark and brutally well acted. A jewel” – The Guardian.
“It is an impressive achievement of filmic art, but one that reveals nothing new” – IndieWire.
“A chilling portrait of yet another young woman lusting after a better life than the one she has, becoming a fun companion to be with. ‘X’” – THR.
“‘Pearl’ stands on its own, a fun ‘Imitation of Life’ full of internal references to horror classics” – Variety.
Remember the trailer:
Remembering that West is already developing the script for the third film, entitled ‘MaXXXine‘.
“I am very grateful to A24 for having had the opportunity to do this. One of the coolest parts of this movie is the notion that there’s something bigger behind it all. what can i say about [a pré-sequência] ‘Pearl’, which we’ve already filmed, is going to be focused on that character. We will find out more about her. It will have a very different aesthetic than ‘X’. They can be watched independently, but the two films complement each other in a specific way.”
he completes, “The horror ‘X’ is influenced by independent films from the 70s, while ‘Pearl’ will address a very different era of cinema. If we get the chance to do the third movie, it will also be inspired by a different era.”
In 1979, a group of filmmakers travel to rural Texas to shoot an adult film, but their reclusive hostess catches them in the act and they soon have to desperately fight for their lives.
