Sam is just a regular guy, on the run from a masked serial killer who has been brutally murdering his fellow camp counselors. Desperate, he reaches out to his friend Chuck, who is an expert in all things horror. She becomes Sam's lifeline as he tries to evade death by avoiding common horror tropes.
In the summer of 2017, best-selling writers Chuck Wendig (Star Wars novels, Marvel’s Hyperion, Terribleminds blog) and Sam Sykes (Aeons’ Gate Trilogy) began a storytelling Twitter exchange creating a new twist on the summer camp slasher movie. Their story generated more than a million impressions, triggering national press buzz and a social media frenzy among fans (“This movie is horror movie gold!”) who demanded it be made into a movie. The first movie ever made from a Twitter thread, You Might Be the Killer is directed by Brett Simmons (Husk, Monkey’s Paw, and Animal) and stars Alyson Hannigan (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods), Keith David (The Thing), Brittany S. Hall (Ballers) and Patrick Reginald Walker (The Resident).
