X was a disturbing delight, following a bunch of newbie adult-filmmakers in Nineteen Seventies Texas, who find yourself clashing violently with the aged couple dwelling within the distant farmhouse the place they’re making an attempt to make a film that may propel fame-hungry Maxine (Mia Goth) to superstardom.
