A plethora of teaser posters for Adam Wingard’s You’re Next have been released today. Well, okay, not a plethora. More like three posters. Maybe one more would make it a plethora. Hint hint. The posters below come by way of Collider, Blood-Digusting and Shock Till You Drop.
You’re Next is directed by Adam Wingard. ”When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.” The film opens August 23rd.
