X Series Episode 2

The Wizard of Odd

Sixty years before her fatal photobombing of a rural porn shoot, crazy old Pearl was just a girlish Texas farmhand with dreams of movie stardom and homicide in her eyes. Will film projectionist and future Superman David Corenswet take Mia Goth away from the daily drudgery of tending to barn animals and her invalid father?  Or is her cold German mother correct in isolating this deranged dancer so that her insanity doesn’t spread to the public like the Spanish Flu? Donate for Platinum to hear how well director Ti West captures the prequel carnage in dazzling Technicolor.
