2013 Movies You're Not Looking Forward To Yet, But Should Be
It feels like an eternity since Adam Wingard’s home-invasion horror thriller delivered the one-two punch of devastatingly exciting festival screenings at the 2011 editions of Toronto and Fantastic Fest, respectively. Praise for the unpredictable genre twister was damn-near universal – mirroring the over-the-top glee generated by another Cinema Blend favorite, Drew Goddard’s intelligent and electrifying The Cabin in the Woods.
Here’s what we know about Next. It’s set in a remote location, where an extended family has gathered to celebrate a 35th wedding anniversary. They’re attacked by strange, mask-wearing thugs bearing crossbows and knives, but the tables reportedly turn when one member of the family displays a unique ability to fight back. Wingard, who since has contributed to the horror anthologies V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, will finally see his cult-hit thriller reach theaters on Aug. 23, giving us the chance to see if it lives up to the hype. Our own Katey Rich, who caught You're Next at TIFF, called it “one of my favorite surprises of the festival,” so our hopes are high.
