Superstar rapper Kid Cudi is making his horror film debut in the first trailer for X. Set against the backdrop of Texas, X follows the secret production of an adult film in the 70s. When a property owner discovers the young group’s project, all bloody hell seems to break loose. Cudi, going by his real name Scott Mescudi, first dipped into the genre before with a role in an episode of Creepshow in 2019.
Mescudi is among co-stars that boast some huge horror credentials themselves. Brittany Snow (Would You Rather?, Prom Night,) Jenna Ortega (Scream,) Mia Goth (Suspiria,) and Martin Henderson (The Ring) round out the cast for this upcoming A24 release. Director Ti West (V/H/S/, The Sacrament) has an impressive catalogue as well, directing episodes of the controversial series Them recently.
Fans have been quick to notice visual references similar to Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Check out the full trailer and let us know what YOU think.
