While X was a directly inspired by slasher flicks, especially, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Pearl was clearly inspired by more psychological horror films like The Shining. Ti West’s surprisde prequel adds some context I didn’t know X needed. Pearl’s origin sort of changes her character into a more tragic one. You don’t necessarily sympathize with her but you do see the tragedy of her character considering how she ended up.
The whole movie was about her finally escaping from the feeling…
We need more horror flicks like this one. Ones that take elements from older films and expand on them while applying current sensibilities. After Get Out, people had this false idea that Jordan Pele was the first to apply politics in horror but horor has always been political. Most great horror movies had a lot to say politically but it unfortunately became a dying breed after the 90’s.
You can see the inspiration this movie took from movies like Castle…
This fucking movie is a game changer!
I thought I knew what to expect since I've seen Good Time but man was completely wrong. I could not predict where this movie was going AT ALL.
This movie goes above and beyond to entertain you by torturing you. This movie is torture but in a good way. The Safdie brothers makes you invest in Sandler's character "Howard" who is esentially a loveable fuckup that just keeps digging and digging and digging…
