You Might Be the Killer was part of Fantastic Fest’s Midnight slate and it’s the perfect flick to watch with a group of friends; a good time, horror comedy with a twist. It stars genre favorites Fran Kranz (Marty from The Cabin in the Woods) as Sam and Alyson Hannigan (Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Willow) as his BFF Chuck. You Might Be the Killer could be considered a spiritual successor to Scream, a meta-horror movie about a terrified camp counselor who just might be his own worst enemy. With a crackling script and great chemistry amongst the supporting ensemble cast, it’s simultaneously a celebration and a send-up of supernatural slashers. While tropes are often upended, the cardinal rules of horror prove difficult to break.
