First Trailer for Adam Wingard's 2011 Horror Favorite 'You're Next'
"Why would anyone do this?" Lionsgate has finally released a trailer for a horror film they've been holding onto since 2011. You're Next, directed by Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die, VHS, VHS-2), is a reinvention of the home-invasion horror-thriller and was heralded as one of the best films of the late 2011 festival season after playing in Toronto and Fantastic Fest. The cast includes Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Ti West and Wendy Glenn. Having not seen the film yet, I must say, this trailer makes it look outstanding, but I still feel like it's all old news now. That said, I hope this is worth the wait in the end.
Here's the first official trailer for Adam Wingard's You're Next, in high def from Apple:
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. A Lionsgate and Snoot Films presentation in association with Hanway Films. You're Next is directed by Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die, Autoerotic, VHS, VHS-2), from a script by Simon Barrett (also A Horrible Way to Die, VHS, VHS-2). This first premiered at TIFF and Fantastic Fest back in 2011, and was delayed for two years by Lionsgate. The film will finally hit limited theaters starting on August 23rd, 2013 later this summer. Are you next?
