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.
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…
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…
That acting tho.
é um filme no mesmo estilo de Os estranhos que também é um remake do filme francês Eles, poderia ter sido executado melhor, principalmente o final, mas enfim, o filme cumpre a que foi proposto.
Conocí a Adam Wingard este año en Sitges con "The Guest", que me pareció maravillosa. Ya le tenía ganas a su otro hit "You're Next". Qué jodida obra maestra homenaje al slasher de los 80-90. Genial la cantidad de referencias que tiene (no sé si pensada, pero incluso a "Solo en casa"), el ritmazo, los giros, las muertes, la música de sintetizadores... Sustacos, tensión y risas a raudales: aplausos everywhere.
Waited a long time before I finally got around to this one as I really didn't want to be let down by the hype. I wasn't. What a cracking little horror that essentially came from nowhere. A better than average cast for the genre (Sharni Vinson particularly), and some good special effects and death scenes. I dug it.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
When I first heard about You're Next, I thought it was just an average modern slasher film. At first it seemed as if it was trying too hard and really exaggerating, but once it started to sink in that it was a dark comedy aiming to be satirical, I started to love it.
It has a great mix of tense, scary and ultra-violent scenes, which fit in perfectly with the really dark comedy, which sometimes made me feel bad for laughing.
I can see a lot of the comedy aspects going over some peoples heads, and it's a shame because the movie is much less enjoyable if you believe it's taking itself seriously, but if you enjoy something like Cabin in the Woods then this is definitely worth checking out.
yeah this is still bomb
