2013 is primed to be one of the best years in horror – and thanks to Lionsgate we’ll be heading into the Halloween season with the beloved festival slasher You’re Next (read our review), which takes an ax to theaters on August 23. The Toronto International Film Festival smash hit blew the minds of the Midnight Madness audience, as well as this month’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Good luck finding a negative review.
Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett, the duo best known for A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S and the forthcoming V/H/S/2, “You’re Next is one of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, one that reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.”
Bloody Disgusting is excited to exclusively premiere one of three You’re Next teaser posters. It displays one of the film’s “animals”, as well as the tagline: “Did you remember to lock your door?” It’s an astoundingly artistic one-sheet that’s both haunting and beautiful. It’ll definitely grab people’s eyes as they’re walking through a theater lobby…
Still, the best part of the slasher is that it boasts an astounding cast that includes Sharni Vinson (the upcoming Patrick remake), Nick Tucci (Choose, Undocumented), Wendy Glenn (11-11-11), AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Joe Swanberg (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S), Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die), Ti West (The Roost, The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Calvin Reeder (V/H/S, The Rambler), Larry Fessenden (Habit, The Last Winter), Kate Lyn Sheil (V/H/S), Barbara Crampton (80′s fav who starred in Re-Animator, From Beyond and Castle Freak) and Rob Moran.
