This month is Megan and Heather’s pick, YOU’RE NEXT. Evan hasn’t seen it yet, and he’s looking forward to being initiated. A reinvention of the masked stalker subgenre, YOU’RE NEXT follows Erin (Sharni Vinson) as she spends a weekend with her boyfriend’s family, the Davidsons. This soon goes to utter hell as the family home is invaded by a trio of slashers in animal masks, but Erin will not go down without a fight.

Directed by Adam Wingard
Written by Simon Barrett
Subgenre: Masked Slasher

See you this Sunday! Love,
Evan, Heather, and Megan
