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…
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…
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…
when the aussie is the best character *100 emoji*
One of the best slasher films done in recent years. Reminds me of the late 90s/early 00s horror movies I grew up watching. Solid.
So much fun! The script has everything: laughs, chills, thrills, spills expertly used cliches, twists and turns, zigs and zigs, blood and guts, the whole shebang.
I love the whole "picking people off one-by-one" format, a la Battle Royale, and, come to think of it, many horror films. This one does it very well in a contained environment.
Doesn't reinvent the wheel but is still incredibly fun and well written. Sharni Vinson makes for a great final girl, smart and resourceful, just the kind of person you'd want to be with in a situation like this. She's a badass. Also, shout-out to Barbara Crampton, she's great too.
This film is just a couple lines of dialogue from being a Thanksgiving set film, what with the family gathering and all, so I consider it appropriate seasonal viewing. Happy Holidays.
Very fun writing and characters, with some less hot direction. You get to see Joe Swanberg get hurt really badly.
an good horror
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
- A female protagonist in a horror film that does the complete opposite of run away
- Survivalist fun for everyone
- Creative gore
- Effective use of sound
- Brisk pace
- Underdeveloped characters aside from the protagonist
- That's really it.
I thought watching You're Next over again might cause me to lower my rating of it, the initial delight having worn off from my first viewing in the theater. This film couldn't possibly be as entertaining as I remember it, right? Actually, it was even better. 4.5/5!
ehhh.. this was ok.. I only watched it because I really enjoyed Adam Wingards other recent film called "The Guest." What I did like about this movie was how things continued to make abrupt turns leaving you interested in the "what's next?" Will recommend to a certain audience at the store.
