Comic-Con isn’t just for blockbusters, after all. Indie horror flick “You’re Next” has just released its poster for the San Diego-based event, and the team behind it should certainly earn points for creativity from film geeks. The poster shows an intricate floor plan eerily shaped like the mask of movie’s killer, creating a clever if on-the-nose cat and mouse dynamic between predator and prey. Above the detailed image is the film’s tagline, “Home is where the hunt is.” Spooky, indeed.
Lionsgate, who’s distributing the film, held a special screening last night co-sponsored by Masters of the Web as one of many pre-ComicCon events meant to get fans excited for the four-day festival. The film is directed by Adam Wingard, written by Simon Barrett (both of whom worked on “V/H/S”), and stars Sharni Vinson and Barbara Crampton. All four filmmakers attended a post-screening Q&A. Check out the poster below, and look for “You’re Next” in theaters August 23.
