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…
Sólo puedo decir: pinchi tipa cabrona
If August: Osage County was like this I might have circled back and watched the damn thing by now.
Definitely preferred the later Wingard/Barrett collaboration The Guest over their 2011 effort, but this one still has its share of cleverness and thrills -- however, when exposition begins in the third act delivered in the most gratingly obvious and pointless way possible, it became a definitive turnoff for me.
Make You're Next, the next movie you watch! Hoo ha!
Quite simply, this movie kicks ass! It's creepy and funny, with a fun throwback 80s vibe with a badass woman beating the shit out of people and stuff.
This movie should have made a shit ton of money, instead of suck fests like Oculus. I haven't even seen Oculus, but I'm betting his is better.
There's some random extreme acts of violence, mixed in with Home Alone style death traps and people in sheep masks. Erick Rowan eat your heart out!
Conocer el giro de guión de la peli ha hecho que la disfrute aún más en este segundo visionado. Divertido e imaginativo slasher conviertido en algo más. Pese a ser indie tiene una factura impecable (excepto por la sangre anaranjada).
The film we've all been waiting for: no need to yell at the screen during this one.
With the majority of theatrical horror flicks being pure crap these days, it's always nice to see an indie like this come along to put a new spin on a familiar theme. You're Next starts off like the predictable home invasion flick, but keeps thing fresh with some dark humour and unexpected twists. Director Adam Wingard moves everything along with plenty of gore and suspense, but don't expect much in the way of actual scares or character development. As with most indie horror films the acting is a little on the crappy side, but Aussie actress Sharni Vinson carries the film well and 80's scream queen Barbra Crampton makes a nice cameo. You're Next isn't the most groundbreaking or original horror film, but it's a ton of fun and throws some new ideas on the cliched home invasion genre. Highly recommended for horror fans.
A family gathering turns sour when masked home intruders decide to play hide and seek with crossbows.
There are few horror movies in the history of cinema that really cater to the horror fan. Scratch that; there are very few movies that recognize the horror fan’s passion without reaching either for full blown satire or parody. I can think of a few, like Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon and Scream. To a certain extent, Cabin in the Woods (though it does use satire and parody, it does so in such a meta way that it’s forgiven). I love each of these movies. And now I love You’re Next just as much.
Let’s go through why these movies…
In some ways, this is one of those typically overrated artsy indie horror films... From a filmmaker who wears his Carpenter/Craven influences very clearly on both his sleeves. It has the distinction of being undeniably skillful, however, even though I'll argue it forgets to have any real fun, I can't say it isn't effective.
At least, once it gets going, which I wish happened a little sooner, because there is a little more setup than is probably needed. Especially when you consider that none of these characters are particularly likable. More to the point, they're not interesting. So you sit there watching them get together at the abandoned house, and have dinner and be quite unpleasant to one another, and…
amazing film with some great twist's you wont see coming
