It's been nearly two years since home invasion thriller You're Next blew the doors down at Fantastic Fest 2011. Finally, the wait is over and it arrives in cinemas on August 23. However, the Alamo Drafthouse is holding a special preview screening on August 12 with stars AJ Bowen and Barbara Crampton in attendance.
You're Next is a bare-knuckle smash-up of action and art house: Written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard (of VHS, VHS2 and A Horrible Way to Die) and starring their regular collaborators Bowen, Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies, Ti West (The Innkeepers) and Amy Seimetz (Sun Don't Shine, Upstream Color, plus Australian bundle of energy Sharni Vinson and modern godmother of horror Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond, The Lords of Salem.)
And if a sneak peak with two of the stars wasn't enough, the Drafthouse is offering a VIP badge for Fantastic Fest 2013. All you have to do to get it is to beat everyone else through a special obstacle course, in honor of the film's domestic death trap theme. Of course, we're expecting that it will be a little less deadly than the movie.
Advance screening of You're Next, Aug. 12, Alamo Slaughter Lane: Obstacle course 6pm, screening 7pm. Tickets free via EventBrite. Details here, and you can RPSP via Eventbrite here. Sign up for the obstacle course here.
