‘You’re Next’ Uses New Posters to Threaten Film Writers with Murder

You're Next T

Home invasion horror flick You’re Next has been getting rave reviews for whole years now (including a few from our very site – here and here), but the film still won’t (finally) hit wide release for another week. To drum up a little bit of anticipation, it looks like Lionsgate (or perhaps the film’s animal-masked killers) have been distributing a few exclusive posters across the net.

Shock Till You Drop received the above image, along with this threatening message: “You’ve been chosen. The Animals are on the Hunt. And Ryan… #YoureNext.” But STYD and their own Ryan Turek aren’t the only ones in trouble, because Bloody Disgusting got their own poster and message, which you can see after the break.

Youre-Next-2

Up top is BD’s exclusive poster, which they got along with a similar threat (with a different name for a different writer being threatened).

Now, I have no idea what the significance of the letters “T” and “O” might be. Presumably, these two posters are the first wave in a long series of threatening images, and that once we’ve gotten our hands on a few more there’ll be something to spell out. Whatever that might be, expect something frightening enough to make you soil yourself.

You’re Next‘s last viral stunt was seriously spooky – the film’s masked killers showed up in other posters and stalked the casts of a few upcoming romantic comedies. Whatever these posters are trying to tell us, it’s probably something you don’t want to hear. Just think happy thoughts.

You’re Next opens August 23rd.
