It’s been a long time in the making for You’re Next.  Premiering in 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival, the well-reviewed home-invasion horror film was quickly bought by Lionsgate… only to then sit on a shelf for 2+ years.  Since then You’re Next has screened at multiple film festivals to overwhelming acclaim while its release remained in limbo.  This Friday, the wait ends – and as leads AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die) and Sharni Vinson (Bait 3D) are quick to note: the fact that an independently-made horror film is getting any sort of wide release, regardless of the time-lapse, is reason enough to celebrate.  I’ll second their motion – as You’re Next takes what can be an unpleasant subgenre in horror (see The StrangersFunny Games) and turns it on its head into a fun audience picture.  It may be hard to imagine a film where a bunch of masked murderers hunt and kill a dysfunctional family as a rollicking good time – but that’s exactly what You’re Next is.
