Am I showing my hacky side when I say that I actually look forward to movies like You’ll Be The Death Of Me? The concept is simple and fun, and if done right could be a pitch-perfect slasher.

Anyway, Lionsgate/Summit bought the slasher comedy from Mark Hammer (Two Night Stand) and will be producing the movie alongside Mandeville Films (Warm Bodies).

Lionsgate’s You’re Next screened over the weekend to a packed crowd at this year’s SXSW Festival and, after 18 months of praise, everyone seemed to agree that the film lived up to the hype. One of the reasons behind the film’s creative success is Adam Wingard‘s incredibly assured hand as a director.

I sat down with him after the screening to talk about the film’s violence and his approach towards making it feel huge.
