Latino-Review caught up with the filmâ€™s director Adam Wingard and the screenwriter Simon Barrett on the convention floor of WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim today. They were signing autographs at the Magnolia Pictures booth.
Wingard and Barrett worked on a few horror projects together in the past couple of years, including â€œV/H/S,â€ â€œThe ABCs of Death,â€ and the upcoming sequel â€œV/H/S/2.â€
The pair shared a bit more information about â€œYouâ€™re Nextâ€ to Latino-Review exclusively.
â€œItâ€™s about a family that gets together for a reunion and they havenâ€™t seen each other in a while,â€ described Barrett. â€œItâ€™s a big family. [There are] the mother, father, three brothers and a daughter. They all bring in their significant others. While theyâ€™re sitting down for dinnerâ€”people attacked the house. Itâ€™s about them not only to figure out how to stop them while itâ€™s happening.â€
Although the trailer looked like a regular thriller movie, Barrett reminded that itâ€™s definitely a horror movie.
â€œItâ€™s essentially a home invasion slasher kind of thing,â€ added Wingard.
It is a bit different from on what they worked on before with the horror shorts.
â€œWe were trying to do something kind of different,â€ added Barrett.
â€œYouâ€™re Nextâ€ is scheduled for release into theaters on August 23. Click here for the jump to the trailer.
The exclusive full interview Â with Wingard and Barrett will be published at the end of this weekend.
