You’re Next (TIFF 2011) Review – Masked Mayhem from Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett

Mrs. Horror Boom (HorrorBoom.com):

Yet more kudos from reviewers for You’re Next. We’re concerned this is only going to be a limited theatrical release (August 23rd… for some reason getting to see it in a theater seems to good to be true) , but we’ll keep you posted. We’re also aware several reviews we’ve “(re)pressed” here are from Fall of 2011; the movie debuted on the festival circuit (Midnight Madness at TIFF). We also have yet to find a bad, or even mediocre review, though we’re still sifting through them. In the meantime, here’s another from Entertainment Maven for you to enjoy, and probably get you jones-ing a little to see it, if you’re not already anticipating You’re Next (see our helpful Countdown Clock on the far right sidebar).

Standing in line last night at Midnight Madness was a true test of willpower. I was waiting to see You’re Next, the new film from the guys that brought us A Horrible Way to Die, and I was scared out of my mind. I think at some level we are all afraid of the subjects of horror films; zombies, madmen, werewolves, etc., that’s why we watch, to be scared. However, we also have our idiosyncratic fears that will be shared by some, but the suffocating terror that seems to sink into our very bones will be not be experienced by the majority of viewers. My ‘special’ fear just happens to be masked assailants and motiveless killers. How quaint that You’re Next stars men in animal masks wielding crossbows, machetes and axes, who show up uninvited at a family reunion. It also didn’t help that an ingenious graffiti…
