Smart, savvy and spectacularly staged while straddling and embracing that fine line between pleasure and pain.

A slow-cooked broth until the brutal climax boils over. [Full review in Spanish]

An exquisite filmic anachronism that, disguised as the usual slasher, develops a discourse that gets under the skin and that, ultimately, elevates it as one of the greatest and riskiest titles of 2022.

The impressive direction and delightful performances, anchored by a terrific central turn from Goth, make this an enthralling horror entry that can satisfy the hunger for exciting spectacle and more sophisticated storytelling.

West's best film to date: a gooey, ebullient orgy of the lewd and the learned, the squalid and the sumptuous.
Jun 7, 2022
There’s nothing original about West’s highly stylized film, it’s just a down and dirty horror jam with a decent batch of jump-scares.

... A film tribute to 70's B-movies, particularly Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deep Throat.

There's more sincerity in a good porn film... [Full review in Spanish]

X, first hour of the film is an homage to 70s psycho-sexual-film making and the last 45 minutes is a psycho-biddy/slasher. It's interesting to say the least but at no point was this a scary film.

A real delight, a genius within the genre that while paying homage to the classics, applies a rolling pin to expand the plot towards the unexpected. [Full review in Spanish]

While certainly creepy and provocative at times, X stumbles from the pretentious pedestal this “elevated” horror film has propped itself upon.

It's Mia Goth's show. The English-Brazilian actress is building a fine repertoire in the horror genre as someone who likes to dive into the deep end of psychotic-tinged stories with a human element coercing through it.
May 13, 2022
Overall, X is an entertaining and vivid throwback horror, with a mesmerizing performance from Goth, even if it doesn't slash quite as deep as it intends.
May 12, 2022
A lubricated and bloody nightmare where desire, pain, coitus, and murder are inseparable parts of the same basic act, animal and profoundly human. [Full review in Spanish]

... a slightly unfocused twist on the sex-and-death genre.

Equally entertains and frightens… a genuine cinephile's feast. [Full review in Spanish]

A quality horror film. [Full review in Spanish]

Aside from its throwback grindhouse visual aesthetic, the film provides only hit-or-miss laughs and thrills, relying on stock characters and gratuitous gore rather than refreshing the formula.
Apr 26, 2022
West's return to horror is beautifully shot and features several stand-out female performances. The relationship between porn and horror isn't as novel as critics made it out to be, but the innovative "stutter cuts" alone make X worth checking out
Apr 25, 2022
Think of this as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Deep Throat. Ti West makes it perfectly clear that hes paying homage to these iconic films as he fills the movie with the meta commentary and tropes of this era in filmmaking.
