Following her love for cinema Maxine Minx (Mia Goth) finds herself in Hollywood, shy of her big dreams and working in porn; but, when a break comes as a starring role in Director Elizabeth Bender’s (Elizabeth Debicki) next film, it would seem her luck has changed. Meanwhile, the Hollywood Strangler has sights on Maxine and all of her friends. From hunted to hunter, Maxine is clearly a resourceful woman, and, given her dark past, who will survive the Hollywood grind is anyone’s guess. Written and Directed by Ti West, this is the third installment of the Maxine/Pearl trilogy, a series of highly stylized satirical, slasher, crime, drama pics centered around Mia Goth’s character. In this go round West and crew re-animate and embody the fun of the 80’s slasher flick with the formulaic panache, color, and nod to all slashers that have come before, in a word, it’s fun, and while perhaps not the zenith of the series as one might hope, for fans of the genre there’s plenty to chew on, squirm at, and laugh in disgust with, mission accomplished. The gods of Hollywood gore are clearly smiling upon this feature. With a brisk runtime of one hour and 44 minutes, MaXXXine makes sure to keep you wanting more. MaXXXine is rated R.
