It's been a pretty long journey for Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett's home invasion thriller You're Next since it debuted at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2011, but Lionsgate has started to gear up for the movie's August 23rd release with another boisterous midnight screening at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
In the movie, Australian actress Sharni Vinson plays Erin, who is brought by her boyfriend Crispian (A.J. Bowen) to his parent's 35th Anniversary family gathering at their remote estate in the woods where they're set upon by a group of masked killers in a brutal home invasion. As they're picked off one by one, Erin is forced to fight back and get as violent as their assailants.

A year ago, Lionsgate snatched up the highly-praised survival horror film You're Next and set it gently on its shelf to collect dust while the powers-that-be sorted out a release date.
The going rumor at the time was it was going to open in October of this year. Clearly, that is not the case. Ah, but we bring good news, via Collider. The movie has a release date. The bad news? You're going to be waiting a bit longer.
AJ Bowen sits in the Choice Cuts hot seat this week to discuss his background, his career and his forthcoming projects. The actor landed on the genre map with The Signal and has been devoted to horror since, appearing in House of the Devil, Hatchet II and Chillerama. On the horizon: You're Next and Rites of Spring. Head inside for our candid interview!
Perhaps the most rousing screening of Fantastic Fest 2011 was You're Next, the latest psychocharged collaboration of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett that was snapped up by Lionsgate for distribution. I can see the urgency behind the acquisition. You're Next is one of the best home invasion films ever made, a tight, firing-on-all-cylinders, hyper-violent and clever thriller that also simply stands as the finest horror flick of the year.
Here's what you pretty much already know: A family reunion takes a turn for the worst when black-clad killers, armed to the teeth and wearing unsettling animal masks crash this gathering's affluent, secluded home and begin bumping everyone off. What these invaders don't know, is that there is an unlikely survivalist attending this party. She's lithe. Resourceful. Australian. A serious ass-kicker. And she isn't going down without a fight.
