YOU RE NEXT

USA, 2011 (MIFF 2013, Night Shift)

Director: Adam Wingard

"The best American horror picture of the year, period." – Twitch

Aubrey and Paul are celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary, and their four grown-up children have returned home with their partners to help them do so. During the party, a group of violent assailants wearing animal masks burst into the room, clearly intending to kill everyone there. The family must find a means of escape, all the while continuing their petty arguments.

Playing to huge acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival, Fantastic Fest and SXSW, You're Next is a horror that doesn't skimp on the violence, or the laughs. Featuring a breakout performance from Australia's Sharni Vinson (Patrick, MIFF 2013), and strong support from Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz and Ti West (The Innkeepers, MIFF 2011), this is the full-on gore-fest that horror fans have been waiting for.

"Immensely clever … wildly fun, bloody and devious. Put simply, it's great." – Fangoria
