I know we still have a whole summer of blockbuster movies ahead of us, but I am already looking forward to August and the release of the first trailer for YOU’RE NEXT only intensifies my excitement. The film has been taking praise left and right at every film festival it’s been screened at for almost two years now. Lionsgate picked the film up and we went a long time before they ever announced a release date. The good news is that the trailer really sells that this one will be worth the wait.
At first the trailer makes it kind of like your typical home invasion flick, but once you get deeper in I could definitely feel the tension and the creepiness of the attackers in their animal masks really started to sell me on the film even more. The good news is that the trailer seems to only hint at some crazy stuff happening within the film and does its best at spoiling as little as possible. That’s not to say that there aren’t a couple of shots that seem to spoil a death or two.
YOU’RE NEXT is a home invasion horror/thriller that has been praised for taking the genre and turning it into something to be excited about rather than taking the “been there done that” approach. Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett who both have segments in the upcoming found footage anthology sequel V/H/S/2. YOU’RE NEXT stars Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg, A.J. Bowen, Ti West and Barbara Crampton and opens in theaters on August 23, 2013. Let us know what you think of the trailer below!
