Description by OLDIES.com:
Loss of identity, submergence of self, death of the soul - under various names and in various guises - befalls individuals trapped in a horror/sf/fantasy universe. You're Next provides an examination of the ways in which this fundamental terror is visited upon people in the movies - and what it does to them - and provides a new perspective on and greater understanding of the films that employ it, and perhaps this book will lead to a deeper appreciation of what it means to be human and why losing that defining aspect of our lives is so profoundly frightening.
