Contemporary Horror Auteur Film Series: You're Next
May 25, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm | Stevenson, Room 150Free
You never want to do anything interesting anymore.
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what a mumblecore slasher film might be like, then look no further than You’re Next. Directed by Adam wingard (who also helmed 2010’s elliptically grim A Horrible Way to Die and this year’s John-Carpenter-meets-The-Terminator homage The Guest) and featuring a number of prominent figures from the mumblecore scene (most notably Amy Seimetz and Joe Swanberg), the film is a wild recasting of the slasher film’s “Final Girl” as a survivalist killing machine let loose amidst murderous familial dysfunction in a Home Alone-like scenario. Not to be missed!
For the remainder of the quarter, we will be showing films by contemporary horror film auteurs from France, Japan, and the United States each week. Same time, same place. All are welcome. Tell your family, invite your friends.
Sponsored (or at least turned a blind eye) by the Literature Department, and produced by the usual gang of aficionados. More informative flyers to follow weekly.
