I’m very interested to see what Adam Wingard brings to the table with You’re Next, his horror film releasing wide August 23rd of this year. Windgard, you may remember, directed the “Tape 56″ portion of V/H/S. His latest film actually premiered in 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival to high praise,. This trailer looks like The Strangers by way of The Most Dangerous Game which, if you’re a fan of either of those, isn’t a terrible thing. There appears to be some mild class warfare happening here, as backwoods hunters go about applying their talents to these uppity bourgeois folks. The only thing that’d make that premise better would be if one of the killers ripped off their mask to reveal Bill Goldberg:
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.
