TIFF ’11: The Amazing Looking ‘You’re Next’ Likely To Be One Of The Next Fest Buys!

I absolutely can’t wait to see You’re Next . Everything I’ve seen and heard indicates I would have a total blast with the movie. And now it seems I might not have to wait very long at all to see it!

Per The Hollywood Reporter, “The horror thriller directed by Adam Wingard had its Toronto premiere Saturday night, playing before a crowd that at times pressed against the seats in suspense, tensely gripped handles, laughed, and cheered when someone bit the dust in a magnificent fashion… But the real action took place in the lobby and outside the doors of the Ryerson Theatre, where Lionsgate executives, including chief Joe Drake, huddled on one side, while Summit’s Erik Feig paced like a tiger on the other. Weinstein Co. and CBS Films execs were seen on phones, and this being at 2:30 AM, they likely weren’t calling their buddies. The buyer interest in the movies wasn’t just high, it bordered on salivation.

Producer Keith Calder has a way of summing up the movie that totally sells me, “[it reminds me of] Home Alone as a horror movie.

A Horrible Way to Die director Adam Wingard with writer Simon Barrett (Dead Birds, Red Sands) bring you the film in which “the Davison family comes under attack from a terrifying group of sadistic murderers during a family reunion getaway. Barricaded in their secluded vacation home, they fight off a barrage of axes, crossbows and machetes from both inside and outside the house. However, the masked killers didn’t count on Erin (Vinson), the young girlfriend of the eldest Davison son whose mysterious past has made her very difficult to kill.
