Kid Cudi has earned another role to add to his film resume. A24 released a trailer to the upcoming horror movie X on Wednesday (January 12) which finds Cudder playing the role of a porn star in the late 1970s.

Directed by Ti West, a group of filmmakers heads to a barren area in Texas to shoot an adult film and the house they’re staying at — of course — becomes haunted and members begin dropping one by one in extremely gory fashion.

The Ohio native appears alongside a cast that includes Brittany Snow, Jenna Ortega, Martin Henderson, Owen Campbell, and Stephen Ure. As for Cudder’s look, he makes a few appearances in X‘s first trailer where he’s hilariously rocking a mustache and afro fully leaning into his porn star persona.

“Dying to show you a good time,” Cudi wrote. “@A24 presents #X, from writer-director Ti West and starring Mia Goth, Brittany Snow, @JennaOrtega, and @KidCudi. Only in theaters March 18.”

Euphoria‘s Sam Levinson is also onboard as a producer for A24’s next blockbuster. The horror movie is slated to hit theaters on March 18.

Kid Cudi has kept busy in Hollywood as he comes off the heels of starring in Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up alongside Ariana Grande, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Jennifer Lawrence. The Netflix film is the streaming giant’s second-biggest flick ever with 21,520,000 total viewing hours since its Christmas Eve debut.
