“Filmmaker Ti West returns with another chapter from the twisted world of X, in this astonishing follow-up to the year’s most acclaimed horror film,” says the synopsis. “Trapped on her family’s isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl’s ambitions, temptations, and repressions all collide, in the stunning, technicolor-inspired origin story of X’s iconic villain.”

Development for Pearl began during the production of X, with director Ti West writing the film while also filming X. Filming for Pearl took place in secret immediately following the completed photography of X, with both films being made back-to-back in New Zealand while X‘s cast and crew were on hand. Pearl is set in 1918 during World War I and will explore Pearl’s backstory and how she comes to be the villain she is in X.
