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.

In the following interview with Sharni Vinson and AJ Bowen, the duo discuss the protracted release of You’re Next, their favorite moment touring with the film on and off for 2+ years and their favorite ‘final girl’.  In addition, AJ Bowen previews the Ti West directed The Sacrament, set to premiere at this year’s TIFF.  For the full interview, hit the jump.

  • Shari talks about her favorite part of promoting You’re Next
