I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
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 their victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back.
Finally, the Home Alone sequel we deserve.
It's surprising that despite packing in an unrefined screenplay which features a predictable storyline & cardboard characters, You're Next works as a thoroughly enjoyable, downright entertaining & deliciously satisfying home-invasion slasher film, and much of its success is ultimately attributed to its charged atmosphere, sustained thrills, sufficient dose of gore & good use of humour in complimenting its horror elements.
The story of You're Next concerns the dysfunctional Davison family that is having a reunion at their vacation house to commemorate their parents' wedding anniversary. But the happy occasion is soon cut short when the family comes under attack from a gang of mysterious assassins. As the killers start eliminating the family members one by one, they soon find out that an unlikely…
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 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…
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…
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…
Now and again I will day-dream or do mental exercises of how I could singlehandly, while being cool and herotic, overcome bad-ass evil circumstances like fighting back an attacker, stop a bank robbery or save hundred of people by landing a broken airplane. You know, normal everyday thoughts. This movie represents and aplify my storage of these scenerios, which is why I must bow in awe for this well made horror-thriller. May everyone have as much fun cheering my rolemodel and guessing the twist as I did.
Step Up 3 Sharni Vinson > You're Next Sharni Vinson by a huge margin, but I can dig it.
Not quite the subversion of the home invasion flick I was hoping it would be, but with some great kills, confidence and wit this is still solid stuff
joe swanberg is michael c. hall's doppelgänger.
To its credit, “You’re Next” is a step above your average home invasion/massacre horror movie. That’s due to its twist, namely that Erin(Sharni Vinson) who attends an extended family get-together with her boyfriend Crispian(A. J. Bowen) knows a thing or two about self-defense. That makes for not only a more palatable and entertaining movie but also makes way for a very subtle(if maybe not intentional) take on the nature versus nurture debate.
But that does not stop “You’re Next” from relishing the violence and inhumanity, ending on something of a sick joke. Plus, the movie violates one of the central tenets of horror when it complicates matters unnecessarily by introducing a second major twist.
good banter/ dialogue between characters. quirky, feminist, bloody, suspenseful, moves fast
"Scream" meets "The Purge", met een vleugje "Funny Games", of toch iets in die aard. Niets speciaals aan, maar wel een leuke, gory rit. Sommige jumpscares werken, anderen dan weer verre van. Relatief slecht acteerwerk over de hele lijn, coole score, creatieve kills soms, maar het allerbelangrijkste: ik heb mij geen seconde zitten vervelen. Adam Wingard heeft hier best wel iets leuk gemaakt, "The Guest" is wel stukken beter. Note to self: marry an Australian chick from the outback.
Holds up and is a fun rewatch. Moves at an insanely quick pace when watching for a second time.
I thought it was much better the first time I saw it. I still liked it this time, but knowing the twist really cut the legs off this movie a little bit. Anyway, that's a personal quibble, and I'm not sure that it's the movies fault.
You're Next is a fun and entertaining movie for a horror fan.
Not the best home invasion movie, but far from the worst, with a good pace, sense of tension, and a sprinkle of gallows humor.
Always nice to see Barbara Crampton!
I recommend this to anyone who can stomach some fairly intense gore and a good amount of tension in a film.

A blend of personal favorites and films that I consider to be the "greatest." Top two-hundred is definitive. Only 1940-2015.
