The upcoming horror flick You’re Next has released a trio of new posters online.
Director Adam Wingard’s genre flick recently made a splash at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Although the film first made the festival rounds back in 2011, Lionsgate is just now getting around to releasing the movie into theaters.
In order to get people excited about the film’s upcoming release, a trio of new posters have been released. You can find all three in the gallery below.
The distributor describes the film as follows:
“The Davison family comes under attack from a terrifying group of sadistic murderers during a family reunion getaway. Barricaded in their secluded vacation home, they fight off a barrage of axes, crossbows, and machetes from both inside and outside the house. However, the masked killers didn’t count on Erin, the young girlfriend of the eldest Davison son whose mysterious past has made her very difficult to kill.”
The film was met with mostly positive reviews when it played in Austin last week. Drew Taylor at IndieWire explained that You’re Next isn’t as wonderful as some of its fans have declared it to be. However, the film is still something genre fans need to seek out.
“There’s an earnestness to the entertainment in ‘You’re Next’ that is truly admirable, and at the end of the day it’s a super enjoyable way to spend an hour and a half,” Taylor wrote.
Scott Weinberg’s Fantastic Fest 2011 review of the flick said it was filmed with “unobtrusive style, quiet confidence, and highly satisfying energy.”
He added, “A career high for virtually all involved. ‘You’re Next’ is indisputable proof that you can make something old new again, provided you actually know what you’re doing.”
The recently-released posters can be found below.
