Mia Goth, Pearl, and the modern scream queen
Mia Goth floats in a lake in X.

Ti West's Pearl premiered at the 79th Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival to considerable critical acclaim. The prequel to West's well-received '70s slasher X, Pearl stars Mia Goth as the titular character. Having already played the older version in X, Goth continues to show her versatility as a horror icon, delivering another compelling and engaging performance with even more bite. Rewarded for their consistency and effort, Goth and West will get their trilogy, as A24 announced a third and seemingly final film in the series, MaXXXine.

It's impressive and honestly encouraging that a singular director such as West gets the chance to helm a trilogy of his own. However, MaXXXine's announcement is more of a triumph for Mia Goth, whose performance has nearly single-handedly carried the soon-to-be trilogy. With an expressive face and a unique gift to portray decisiveness disguised as naiveté, Goth is a horror icon in the making. From Marrowbone and A Cure for Wellness to Suspiria and Pearl, Goth's ability to play a horror leading lady is nearly unparalleled. Her work is raw and honest, vulnerable yet intense, alluring yet somewhat discomforting. Goth is the embodiment of the modern horror icon, and she knows it.

Scream scares up another sequel for Paramount Pictures
The cast of Scream looks at the camera in 2022's Scream.

Ghostface isn't done yet. Following the recent success of last month's Scream reboot, Deadline is reporting that Paramount has ordered a follow-up, with the same creative team behind the camera that made the horror movie a hit with critics and audiences alike.

Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, part of the Radio Silence film collective, will return to helm the sequel, the sixth film in the decades-old film series. In addition, James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick will be back to co-write the screenplay, which will no doubt contain the blend of comedy and horror that pleased audiences the first time around. Also coming back is Scream creator Kevin Williamson, who penned the first, second, and fourth installments of the series, and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, who will executive produce alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre.
