The slew of awards in its armoury – which include Best Director, Best Film, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay in the Horror category at Fantastic Fest two years back – really speaks for itself. And if you’ve seen the trailer, then fans of the genre will know this should be one to look forward to.
The movie has been gaining momentum nicely in recent weeks, making appearances at Comic-Con and in the general public out in the States. And after getting an exclusive new TV spot to share earlier in the week, the new UK quad poster has now been released, full of praising reviews that cement its status as one of the year’s most anticipated horror movies.
One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, YOU’RE NEXT 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, Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, A.J. Bowen, Nicholas Tucci, and Barbara Crampton lead the cast.
Wingard (V/H/S, The ABCs of Death) reunites with frequent collaborator Simon Barrett (V/H/S, The ABCs of Death), directing from a script Barrett wrote.
You’re Next will be released in the US on August 23rd, ever so slightly ahead of its UK release on 28th August, with the film selected as the Opening Night Film for this year’s FrightFest on 22nd August.
