The most intriguing thing about Adam Wingard’s slasher flick “You’re Next” (a 2011 production that’s just now getting its theatrical due), is the plot synopsis below, which sorta spoils the fact that one of the “victims” turns out to be “the most talented killer of all”. I mean, that’s a big spoiler, right? Maybe, maybe not, but that’s the official synopsis that’s being offered by the studio for a while now.
Thankfully the trailer doesn’t really reveal that part of the synopsis (at least, I didn’t see it), though I could imagine the desire to do so in order to give the trailer that little bit of POP. (And in case you missed it, three posters for the film were released here.)
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.
“You’re Next” stars Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Barbara Crampton, Ti West, Wendy Glenn, Nicholas Tucci, Kate Lyn Sheil, Amy Seimetz, and Rob Moran.
