In the USA, an R rating (children under the age of 17 only when accompanied by an adult) was granted, in Great Britain there was a BBFC-18 approval (from 18 years of age) and in Germany everything looked like it will be released in full, but will be reserved for cinema audiences of legal age: Because the FSK gave “ X ” a release from the age of 18 at the first attempt. A classification with which the local distributor Capelight Pictures was not satisfied, so that an appeal was finally made — with success.
«X» will be released in German cinemas on May 19, 2022 with a 16 release. Anyone who, seeing the lower age limit, fears that they are only getting a softened version can breathe easy: The film is released completely unabridged — and was only classified as new or more harmless than in the first review by the voluntary self-control during the second review. Of course, gorehounds have no reason to worry: In “X”, which we already consider to be one of the horror highlights of the year, things really get down to business despite the rating of 16.

«X» looks like «Texas Chainsaw Massacre» — only with more sex…
Late 1970s: Director RJ ( Owen Campbell ) and his crew head to a remote Texas farm to film their new movie. He and his girlfriend Lorraine ( Jenna Ortega ), who is responsible for the sound, and the cast around Maxine ( Mia Goth ), Bobby-Lynne ( Brittany Snow ) and Jackson Hole ( Kid Cudi ) try to prove that this is porn in front of their hosts ( Stephen Ure and Mia Goth in a second role) to be kept secret. Problems with the moral police in the US South are pretty much the last thing they need right now.
