The ‘You’re Next’ Trailer Is Here! And It’s Worth The Wait!!!

It’s funny – a March 28th trailer release for a movie that comes out on August 23rd is still fairly early. At least it’s not late late. Yet, because Lionsgate’s You’re Next has been anticipated for so long (due to the Summit/Lionsgate merger, not due to quality), it feels like it’s been an eternity. A lot of you have been asking us for the trailer for 18 months… so we’re just as stoked as you are that it’s finally here. And it’s great! I dig how the trailer sells the suspense and horror of the film without giving anything else away – there’s still a lot you haven’t seen (it’s relatively spoiler free in that regard). I also dig the moment when the chorus of “Perfect Day” comes back into the mix. From what I gather this is just the beginning of a pretty big marketing push.

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.

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 (Re-Animator, From Beyond and Castle Freak) and Rob Moran all star.

    • Kroork

      Lol agreed !
      Crazy about evil dead but once that’s over this is my next obsession!

  • Kenzo

    OK … this looks like the Shit!

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    Looks awesome! Can’t wait 🙂

  • eagleye25

    Amazing. Worth the wait. The Lou Reed was a nice touch.

  • Aaron Emery

    BADASS! I can’t wait for this!!!

  • djblack1313

    looks good. i’m not completely blown away (i’m not really into home invasion movies) but i’ll definitely be seeing this in theaters! for the record, I TRIED TO RESIST WATCHING THIS!! lol.

    • djblack1313

      what IS really really intriguing to me is the “until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.”….

      i’m dying to know who this is? i’m thinking Sharni Vinson’s character? i hope so! i’d love to see her turn the tables on the home invaders.

      • Aaron Emery

        From what I understand it is Sharni Vinson’s character that they are talking about!

    • EvanDickson

      @djblack1313 there’s a LOT they left out of the trailer. A lot of the humor and surprises. Lots to look forward to.

      • morehorror4me

        good to know because the whole “turning the tables” aspect is what appeals to me about the film

      • djblack1313

        thanx Evan! i definitely plan on seeing this in theaters! 🙂

        • Aaron Emery

          So much for not watching the trailer DJ, eh? 🙂

          • djblack1313

            Aaron, lol!! I TRIED!! my willpower lasted for about 3 seconds! i new record! 🙂

      • evenscarier

        That’s great to know, all too often all the good stuff is the trailer.

  • K-Dogg


  • diapers

    Looks promising. I hope there is not too much handheld cam work…

  • Blood-Sicles

    Dude, tell me Lionsgate left “Looking for the Magic” in the final film! That song was perfect for the opening. Anyways, this trailer is almost as badass as the film itself. Glad they’re playing the humorous side down.. Horror comedy is a tough fucking sale. I seriously can’t wait to see it a second time

  • CorbinRaven

    Hey Blood-Sicles, who sings “Looking for the Magic” in this? I’ve been looking for it for a while, and I can’t seem to find the exact version.

    • CorbinRaven

      Also, this trailer looks absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT!!!!!!

    • cerealkillerx

      Dwight Twilley does the one you hear through the film. The cover version by Mind The Gap plays over the end credits. At least that’s how it was at the Fantastic Fest screening in 2011. Don’t know if it had gotten changed since then.

      • Blood-Sicles

        That’s when I saw it too, days after Lionsgate took over. Hopefully it stays in. The song in the trailer works, but I don’t think it’d fit in the movie as well as Looking for the Magic did.

        • EvanDickson

          Looking For The Magic is in the movie for sure.

          • WalkWithMeInDarkness

            Normally i never attempt to ask anything of people who write for sites. I’m horribly negative and assume I won’t be answered, but i’ll give it a shot anyway. This has nothing to do with this film, but a few weeks ago, i saw a trailer for a found-footage film called “Stage Fright” that was supposed to come out October 2012, but when i googled it, it seems NO ONE has seen this film. Do you or anyone know anything about it?

    • Mr.Mirage

      Time to drag out Transformer! About time Lou caught some love from the movies.

      • Mr.Mirage

        And Berlin.

  • joe666

    I want to see that shit now. And I mean NOW.

    • egaltt23


  • Golic

    what is all the fuss about? I don’t see anything unique here.

    • rgold

      I kinda agree. The trailer makes it look like any other home invasion flick. Don’t get me wrong, its a well done trailer but if I already wasn’t a fan of the people involved I don’t think it alone would get me in the theatre.

      • Terryblepun

        I’m going to have to agree with you guys, I really don’t see why everyone is freaking out over this trailer. Maybe the movie will be great but the trailer shows me nothing I haven’t seen in any other movie.

        • ThunderDragoon

          I completely agree with all of you. Will I be watching this? Yes. I just wish I was excited like the majority of people here.

          • DisturbedPixie

            yeah… I’ll watch it if it rating is above a 5/10 on IMDb…. AND I will watch it on redbox after the hype has gone down…. or at the drive-in along with another horror movie. August is good drive-in weather. I just don’t get the hype, or what everyone else is so excited about. Looks decent, could go either way… sure not given enough to make me go “ooOoOoOoOoo– now that’s something special!” Like I never heard of an invasion film where one of the character’s doesn’t always make the wrong choices? Where they aren’t scared to fight back? Even Funny Games gave me like 30 seconds of that. And I think I haven’t watched a Home Invasion film since The Collector… and that was just stupid.

  • Scream1210

    Finally! This looks great! I love how “Perfect Day” was used in this. Love the trailer. And I know there is still so much to see! They did a good job of not spoiling anything really. Im so excited!

  • Remember-Slithis

    Looks intense!

  • divisionbell

    Well damn…that looks awesome…

  • Zombie-Killa

    Weird, and I guess I’m the only who feels this way, but the trailer kind of looks like a mix between The Strangers and The Collector/The Collection.

    Any AWESOME fucking trailer, and I can’t wait to see this!

  • Marrow


    PERFECT trailer.
    So pumped for this.

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    Looks cool. Hopefully I love it, along with Evil Dead, Maniac, The Conjuring, Insidious Chapter 2 and Carrie.

  • jchano123

    It looks like ‘The Strangers’ but with more people.

  • flesheater24

    I had to stop watching it I didn’t want to be spoiled :0 but I liked the set up this is going to be fuckin stellar.

  • horrorking95

    Holy Christ! I wasn’t going to watch this, but then I thought, “hey I’ll just watcht his and only this trailer once, August is ages yet!” and I’m bloody glad that I did! This has got me even more excited. I was already sold, but now I’m thinking of buying another ticket! It looks incredibly stylish and could well be the king of home invasion films. This trailer was so perfect too with the music and intensity of it all. Dare I say it, I think I’m looking more forward to this than The Evil Dead now!

  • ChelseaGoneAwry

    AWESOME trailer!! I’m so pumped!!

  • Shanesaw-is-vuxnut

    Really nice trailer. I am now actually looking forward to this.

  • may62011

    Looks great however it’s by the same team that brought you the god awful V/H/S. Hopefully this one turns out good.

  • QueenofScream666

    I saw the trailer for this when I went to see “Evil Dead”. Unlike all of the other sad attempts for horror films, this one actually looks like it holds something promising. However, I couldn’t shake “The Bunny and the Bear” out of my head for some odd reason…must be the masks. I am intrigued! Can’t wait for this!
