Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, YOU’RE NEXT/THE GUEST director Adam Wingard’s remake follows high school student Light Turner who comes across a supernatural notebook with the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, Light launches a secret crusade and begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.
