You’re Next Review

Here’s another You’re Next review for you! We’ve actually seen the movie (as of last night) and will be putting up our own review (short version: Horror Boom gives it a B+) but this is another one we agree with. Sadly, the movie isn’t doing quite as well in the theaters as expected, so if it’s playing locally and you want to see it, try to get that done soon. Plus, the fun factor goes up if you have a crowd… though, at our showing, it was one other couple and a dude by himself, and we all still had a great time.  Jump moments? Nothing that made me (the screamer in the group) scream or yelp, though a few times my hands kind of flew up jerkily in surprise. We didn’t see it for big jump scares, anyway.

Starring : Sharni Vinson, Joe Swanberg, AJ Bowen

Director : Adam Wingard

Writer : Simon Barrett

Released : August 20th

Shot in 2010 and released to the festival circuit in 2011, You’re Next the first feature film from Adam Wingward and Simon Barrett who collaborated for a vignette included in horror anthology V/H/S, has been a long time coming, though it feels as though I have been waiting much longer to find a horror film like this, it feels as though I’ve been waiting all my life – You’re Next is as scary as it is funny and as exciting as it is disturbing, it’s a smart wild ride of a horror movie that ticked all the boxes it needed to, to succeed. In short if I had met this film in a club I would have gone home with it.

The MPAA gives Roth’s Green Inferno an R rating for “aberrant violence”!

OK then! Well, this IS good news! Horror Boom SO cannot wait to see this one; lets hope we don’t have to wait till 2014. Reviews should start trickling in after the film premieres at TIFF’s Midnight Madness in early September, so keep your fingers crossed. Oh, and believe it or not, the ‘featured image’ above is not official promotional material from the press kit for Green Inferno (we do want a poster of it for our office, though).

In perhaps the best news of the day, the MPAA has officially delivered an expected R rating to Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno. The best part? Here’s the description they gave on the rating, “aberrant violence and torture, grisly disturbing images, brief graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use”. With Roth finally returning to a spot behind the camera of a feature film, you had to know he was going to come out swinging. Inspired by Cannibal Holocaust, The Green Inferno appears to be Roth’s most violent and disturbing film yet, which is saying a lot considering his body of work.
