Are you trying to find out where to watch X this weekend? X is the latest movie by writer and director Ti West. The buzzy erotic slasher film has earned rave reviews from critics, with particular praise toward the film’s homage to classic horror films and the casting.

If you’re wondering if X is streaming on Netflix, then here’s your answer: No. The movie is not on Netflix and it’s not clear if it ever will be. But keep reading to find out more about where to watch X and the movies on Netflix that are similar.

Where to watch X

You can watch Ti West’s latest film in theaters this weekend. Right now, that is currently the only way to see it. The movie should be available to rent or purchase within the next couple of months.

As for whether or not X will ever appear on Netflix, it’s hard to say. Odds are that it will end up on a streaming service at some point because A24 frequently collaborates with streaming platforms to distribute their movies after a theatrical run. Usually, the company’s films end up on platforms like Showtime, Apple TV+ or Hulu, as was the case for recent movies like After YangThe Sky Is Everywhere and The Tragedy of MacBeth.

However, in 2019, A24 sold the rights to Uncut Gems to Netflix. It’s possible that could happen again in the future. But for now, don’t expect X to arrive on Netflix anytime soon. If you really want to see it, the best way is just to go to the cinema near you.

Movies like X on Netflix

Even though X isn’t on Netflix, there are a couple of similar slasher movies available to watch. Based on the trailer, the movie feels similar to Texas Chainsaw Massacre in some ways thanks to its rural setting. Netflix is currently streaming several of the Leatherface-led horror flicks, including the latest film in the franchise.

Other slashers available to watch include Hush, There’s Someone Inside Your House, The Babysitter, A Classic Horror Story and the Fear Street trilogy.

Also, you might want to check out M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Visit, as it also seems similar to the plot of X, although unfortunately The Visit isn’t on Netflix either and only available via digital retailers to rent/purchase.
