Lionsgate will release the horror movie Pearl on Blu-ray Disc and DVD Nov. 15.
From director Ti West, Pearl serves as a prequel to X, the film released earlier this year about an elderly couple that attacks members of a porn crew shooting a movie at their farm. Pearl was shot in secret in conjunction with X and serves as an origin story for the title character.
Mia Goth, who co-wrote Pearl with West, reprises her role as Pearl, who was one of the elderly farmers from X, detailing how she developed a taste for murder growing up on her family’s isolated farm in the early 20th century while dreaming of a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies.
The cast also includes David Corenswet, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland and Emma Jenkins-Purro.
A24’s horror film X arrives May 24 on Blu-ray combo pack (plus DVD and digital) and DVD from Lionsgate.
From writer-director Ti West (The Innkeepers, The Sacrament) in his long-awaited return to horror, the film stars Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness, Suspiria, Emma.), Brittany Snow (Prom Night, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2), Jenna Ortega (“You,” 2022’s Scream, The Babysitter: Killer Queen) as well as Grammy Award nominee Scott Mescudi (better known as Kid Cudi, Don’t Look Up).
The story follows a group of actors who set out to make an adult film in rural Texas under the noses of their reclusive hosts — an elderly couple with a farm and boarding house for rent. When the couple catches their young guests in the act, the cast finds themselves in a desperate fight for their lives in this tantalizing slasher.
