A24 has released an official trailer for Pearl, an upcoming horror film that serves as a prequel to 2022’s X. Let’s take a look.
I have no interest in seeing Pearl, but for those who do, the film is directed by Ti West and Mia Goth reprises her role from X as the titular character.
Set during World War I in 1918 and explores the origins of Pearl, the villainous character from X. The events take place prior to the previous film and explore how the cabin, where the “massacre of X” takes place, was once used as a boarding house during the war.
Feeling trapped at the isolated family farm, Pearl is tasked with attending to her ailing comatose father, while under the harsh micromanagement of her cruel mother. Lusting after the glamorous life she has seen depicted in the movies, a collision of her ambitions, temptations, and repressions arrive creating the villain she feared she would become.
Pearl opens in theaters on September 16, 2022.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
