First Trailer for YOU’RE NEXT Arrives

March 28, 2013 Leave a comment


Finally. It has arrived.  After over a year of pocketing this little horror gem, Lionsgate is releasing festival favorite You’re Next.  The trailer is pretty good, mostly focusing on the more intense horror elements of the film while keeping most of the unique aspects on the back burner.  The use of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” is an inspired musical pick that plays into these unique aspects without tipping the hat so to speak.  It’s important to note that You’re Next isn’t your average run of the mill home invasion flick and in fact has a healthy dose of effective humor built in to offset some of the more intense moments.

I was lucky enough to see the film at Fantastic Fest 2011 and again at SXSW 2013. Read my review for more details but I will say You’re Next is a fresh blast of blood soaked fun in a genre that desperately needs reinventing. You’re Next opens August 23rd, 2013.

Thanks to Joblo for the embeddable link.  You can also watch the trailer here.

If you need a synopsis, here you go I suppose:

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.
