Last year I created a similar list so it was about time I did another for those upcoming films that…
Did You Remember To Lock Your Door?
When the Davison family comes under attack during their wedding anniversary getaway, the gang of mysterious killers soon learns that one of victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back.
Finally, the Home Alone sequel we deserve.
Just your typical family gathering until three fucked-up psychos in creepy fuckin animal masks crash the party. A lousy fuck. A Nostradamus-esque warning. The same song on fuckin repeat. An Aussie beauty with survivalist skills. Family dinner. Arrow to the face. A Chariots of Fire moment ends with a gush. Don't you know to never say "I'll be right back." A surprise under the bed. The brother that just want die. Wanting to fuck in the creepiest of places. Fuckin with the wrong teacher's assistant. Bashing a fucker's skull. A Scream like twist. Blender ownage. Knife in skull. The wrong person answers the right call. Squished piggy. A score John Carpenter would be proud of. Low-budget horror done just right. I'll take this over The Conjuring or Evil Dead anyday.
I stuck a blender on his head and killed him.
Wow. I honestly didn't expect to come out of the theater tonight so entertained by the wonderfully blended tonic of blood, chills and laughs that You're Next served up with confidence and craft.
Coming out of a theater pleased and fulfilled is a rare experience these days.
Next to The Conjuring I'd say this is one of the best horror films we are likely to get all year. Sitting down in the theater before it started, I would've laughed if my future self told me this was a 9/10 film I was about to see. Or an 8/10 one at that. Well I guess the simple genius behind You're Next…
I can't write film reviews. Aw, I suck. Fuck me, right? Well I've done a bit of research and I've found myself a Wiki guide on how to write a successful review! Yay me! Yay Internet! So here is what Wiki has to say;
1: Gather basic facts about the movie. You can do this before or after you watch the movie, but you should definitely do it before you write the review, because you'll need to weave the facts into your review as you write. Here's what you need to know:
The title of the film, and the year it came out.
The director's name.
The names of the lead actors.
2: Take notes on the movie…
In the last few months I’ve read so many conflicting reports about Adam Wingard’s home invasion slasher, from those hailing it as the saviour of the genre to others moaning about its derivative plotting. Having finally watched the film I’m not sure I agree with either meaning it’s an enjoyable and twisting ride but doesn’t necessarily linger long in the memory.
You’re Next is set during the Davison’s family reunion celebrating the parents’ 35th wedding anniversary. Things quickly turn sour, first with the bitterness festering within the family and then when masked intruders begin bludgeoning the guests to death. Wingard and scriptwriter, Simon Barrett, stick faithfully to the slasher formula with its resourceful final girl (Sharni Vinson proving to be…
Not your typical generic horror home invasion movie...If there's a 70+ year old woman who's by herself in your theater and she's getting into it, it's gotta be good. Right?
As many others have stated in their reviews, going into this I really didn't know what to expect. The acting was SO bad. The film was unintentionally funny because of how poor the acting was; you couldn't help but to laugh at times. Maybe that was the plan the director had. Seriously as times it was hilarious. I was expecting this to be really scary, but it honestly wasn't. A few jump scares got me, but I was never in a state of fear. I did feel extreme tension during…
Fourth film of the day... You're Next is an awesome horror movie filled with tension around every corner. I didn't expect this film to be nearly as good as it was. I highly recommend it, but you've probably already seen it.
"Although it certainly will not impress, it satisfies your craving for blood and survival."
'You're Next' is a good, simple, and well thought through slasher flick. Although its not nearly as well directed or executed as 'The Conjuring,' it still seems to maintain basic elements of quality cinema. I loved the electronic, Cliff Martinez type score. I also thought that the ending was phenomenal. The only thing keeping me from grading this as well as 'The Conjuring' was the acting. 'You're Next' is filled with bad, amateur quality actors. All in all, I must say that I enjoyed this film, and I will remember the thrills for a while.
This movie was real, real bad.
There was that movie, The Strangers a few years back. Not really much different between the two, except I would consider watching The Strangers again. This movie was very predictable, horribly acted, and just not goo.
Endurance test. By that I mean I hate movies with excessive amounts of violence and gore, but this right here amps it up! I loved the actors. Sharni Vinson is a kickass! In a collaborative effort, my brother gave his two cents and said "wow! best movie ever!", he gave it a 5 and that's what I put. He had fun!
Side note: home invasion films always make me think I shouldn't own one when I'm older. That alone justifies my itching desire to live in New York City. Okay, off-topic. Bye.
Most horror films have their fair share of twists and turns. The majority of the time they end up being exactly as predictable as the trailer made the movie seem, but 'You're Next' manages to do a pretty convincing job of keeping things a secret until it wants you to find out.
The premise of the film is pretty basic at first glance. A family goes to their old house in the country to reunite for their sick mother. The house just happens to be unlocked. Everything is fine for about a day. Horror ensues.
Though, this time, the murderers weren't equiped to handle an Aussie named Erin who is dating one of the brothers and happens to have grown…
I've wanted to see this movie since it came out but never got the chance to. So when I received it for my birthday, I was really excited. That excitement was short lived and there really isn't much to say about it.
I feel that this plot has been done a countless number of times and not only that but it was very predictable. I wanted a huge twist and never got one. It's an okay movie to watch if you want to watch a cliche horror movie but nothing special. My husband enjoyed it more then I did.
Dwight Twilley on repeat was what put this one over the top.
I did want to see this movie but it took a conversation on FB to about the disappointing "The Purge" to remind me to find it and holy crap, it is SO much better than "The Purge".
It starts a bit slow but once it gets going, it becomes a brutal bloodbath when one of the characters steps up to the challenge to get back at the creeps in the animal masks. It is AWESOME.
