    ‘X’ Director Ti West Talks Flipping the Slasher Script In

    He wanted ‘X’ to feel charming.

    Ti West

    Marking his triumphant return to horror after a decade, Ti West’s X is shocking and awing audiences out of SXSW. The film takes place in 1979 when a group of amateur filmmakers set out to make a porno in rural Texas. But, when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast soon finds themselves in a desperate fight for their lives. Dread Central’s Drew Tinnin said of the film in his review:

    X takes your expectations, immediately subverts them, then delivers an explosive release of that tension. With films under his belt like the criminally underrated The Innkeepers, Ti West is becoming one of the only directors since John Landis that’s capable of crafting a true horror comedy. 

    West is a modern horror master, responsible for contemporary horror classics like The House of the Devil and The Sacrament. We were lucky enough to sit down with West to talk about avoiding nihilism in X, creating a charming slasher, and more!
