The first images of the X trailer are scintillating. They’re seductive. Co-writer/Director Jon Hewitt follows up his serial killing blackmail thriller Acolytes with a new flick about the dangerous, tawdry world of prostitution and call girls.

It looks absolutely gripping, and the promise of violence will undoubtedly be kept with Hewitt at the helm, but watch out for this trailer.

As soon as it slips off its little black dress, it pulls a gun on you.

Australia is crushing it lately.

The film features Hanna Mangan Lawrence (who was also in Acolytes) alongside Viva Bianca, and has been picked up by IFC so people in the US can see it.

The synopsis as printed over at Twitch (where the trailer also comes from):

Holly Rowe’s retiring, kissing her callgirl life goodbye. She just has to get through her last night on the job. Shay Ryan’s a teenage runaway, broke and alone. She just has to get through her first night as a hooker. Then fate throws them together on a job that goes horribly wrong and they’re suddenly racing on an out-of-control roller coaster ride, through Sydney’s criminal underworld. X is a sizzling thriller about love, chance, escape and the oldest profession experienced by two women on a night that will change their lives forever.

Sounds great. Where do I sign up?
