Adam Wingard‘s You’re Next is one of those horror movies with potential to change the genre. At least, that was the sentiment coming out of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival where the film premiered. After a heated bidding war, Lionsgate acquired the festival hit  and subsequently shut it down, limiting it to just one additional festival screening at Fantastic Fest 2011. We were there and loved it. The rumor was it would be released in October 2012 which, obviously, isn’t happening.

Wingard and his writer Simon Barrett have since gone on to other things (V/H/S, The ABCs of Death) mostly unaware of what was going on with their completed home invasion horror story. Now, finally, Lionsgate has scheduled the film: August 23, 2013. It’s a long way off, but it’s also a prime late summer slot where horror movies can really shine.
