The 2011 horror film You’re Next is considered to be a genre fave, one that was a throwback to the glory days of violent and body-filled slashers. And one of the big compliments was that it had a strong 80’s vibe to it. And I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that’s why YouTuber Sean Johnson whipped up a trailer for the film but made it look like it was shot from that decade.
It’s a well crafted project, although the filter that’s used and the voiceover treatment seems far more like a 70’s trailer than one from the 80’s. Still, it’s a lot of fun and definitely makes me want to revisit the film! Check it out below.
“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.”
