Like many directors, Adam Wingard, whose film You’re Next I actually found myself liking more than I had thought I would once I recognized it as the 80s throwback (some say parody, though I never felt it went that far) stalker/slasher movie that it was, started out his career making short films. Here are two of them.
The first, 1000 Year Sleep actually has a pretty amusing payoff at the end
and the second, Laura Panic packs just enough story into its 3:15 running time to show that the burgeoning director knew just when to get in and get out of his film.
So what do you think? Based on these would you be willing to put Wingard behind the camera for a feature-length film? and if you saw You’re Next what did you think about it? Let me know in the comments.
