X | Questions and Answers
Who is the man in the basement?
This is probably the biggest question in the film. Alas, no answer if provided by the movie. Where a movie like Barbarian feels compelled to provide a backstory for the creepy basement of prisoners, X is content with letting the man’s body become part of the horror.
All the body really reveals is that Pearl and Howard have made a habit of ritualistically killing people on their farm. Their desire to kill links with the “divided America” theme, as they are murdering young people whom they believe exhibit immoral lifestyles and represent the compromised direction their country is heading.
