I am so excited to see You’re Next at Frightfest next week that I can barely contain myself, so when I see new TV spots like the one below, I just want to jump through time, and be say in a packed cinema enjoying what is said to be one of the best horror films of the year! The new TV spot focuses on what the critics have been saying, and it seems the word “scary” is a top choice of word!
‘You’re Next’ – a chilling warning scrawled in blood on a neighbour’s wall, starts an evening of bloody mayhem for the Davison family. A lively reunion is abruptly brought to an end when a gang of mysterious killers, disguised in animal masks, wage an all-out assault on the Davison’s secluded home. Using a series of sophisticated traps, axes, crossbows and machetes, the family are slaughtered one by one until nowhere is safe. But neither the attackers, nor their victims, have counted on Erin (Sharni Vinson, STEP UP 3D); an innocent girlfriend who has the killer instinct to fight back…
Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S, V/H/S/2) are the talents behind what is already an acclaimed new horror. You’re Next stormed audiences at both Toronto Film Festival and SXSW.
You’re Next also features Rob Moran and Barbara Crampton as parents Paul and Avery Davison. Amy Seimetz plays their prissy daughter Aimee and Joe Swanberg steals scenes as favourite son Drake. Aimee’s artist boyfriend is played by horror movie director and actor Ti West.
YOU’RE NEXT will be released in cinemas across the UK from Friday 30th August 2013.
