Last year the horror genre was reinvigorated by a new take on the slasher flick with You're Next, which invades homes today.
The film stars Sharni Vinson (Step-Up 3D), Nicholas Tucci (Choose), AJ Bowen (The House of the Devil) and Ti West (Drinking Buddies), with Rob Moran (Dumb & Dumber) and horror icon Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) as a family that becomes targeted during a home invasion by mask wearing assailants.
Since the theatrical release, Vinson’s unbelievably kick-ass heroine and the “Fox” mask wearing attacker have become the icons of the bloody hit. So much so that last year many dressed as the pair for Halloween and will likely cosplay as the two for horror conventions and the like. Fox Mask has even become immortalized along other horror icons in a custom LEGO line-up of slasher killers by MiniFigs for the UK release.
The special series celebrates the history of the slasher through LEGO figures culminating with You’re Next right in time for the release. Check the line up below as commissioned by Organic Marketing to showcase the bloody legacy:
All of the above custom figures are available on MiniFig’s website.
Be sure to check out You’re Next on Blu-ray Disc and DVD which is out today and includes a “The Making of You’re Next” featurette, and two audio commentaries by the cast and directors. It’s not to be missed if you haven’t seen it and a real refreshing addition to the horror genre.
