Earlier this year, we were introduced to Pearl, an elderly lady who killed a band of filmmakers in Ti West‘s sleeper hit X and now, we will get the chance to know her backstory in a prequel that was shot shortly after the release of X. The trailer has finally been released.
Mia Goth, who played Pearl (and protagonist Maxine) in the original film, returns to the role as we learn that Pearl had always wanted to be away from her life on the farm in hopes to be a star. However, a series of events, from her family’s reluctance to competition with other aspiring stars, leads to Pearl going to great lengths to start a new life…including murder.
Filming was completed in New Zealand and A24 will be releasing the film later this year.
