YOU’RE NEXT is a home invasion thriller written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, the duo who have previously worked together on films such as “A Horrible Way to Die,” “V/H/S,” and the upcoming “S-VHS”.
The film, which had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness program, 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.
In the film, while on a getaway, the Davidson family comes under attack. When Crispian Davidson (A.J. Bowen) brings his new girlfriend (Sharni Vinson) along to celebrate his parent’s wedding anniversary, the family’s evening together is shattered when a gang of mysterious killers begin to hunt the family down with brutal precision. Unfortunately for the killers however, one of the victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back.
