X (2022) — A Vintage Road Trip Slasher That Subverts The Horror Genre

My reaction. It’s literally one big spoiler. You’ve been warned.

So, it goes without saying, but if you haven’t already seen the 2022 film X, starring Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, Kid Cudi and Martin Henderson, you probably want to stop reading now.

I’m giving away a major underlying theme of the story, at least how I interpret it, anyways.

The movie is best experienced with as little input as possible. At least the first time.
