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…
You're Next is a ferocious and vicious joyride of a slasher movie, sending audiences on a trip of brilliant staging, immaculate pacing, pitch-perfect twists, and incredible kills. Frankly, this is EASILY the finest slasher of the 21st century. Nothing has come close. I can't believe I delayed my viewing of this, mostly because the majority of horror fans are whiny little bitches who can't see when anything worthy of mention is released.
I laughed, I cringed, I gasped in horror, I jumped; I had a physical and emotional experience with You're Next that I haven't had with a horror film since The Conjuring, And that film was a stone-cold classic.
Also, this is a stone-cold classic as well. The direction,…
'You're Next' is one of those horror films whose beginning and end are very good, but whose middle doesn't quite click together as well. The setup here is perfect, the dark comedic touches (though few) are deftly handled, and the twists (while not wholly original) are solidly surprising in the moment. This could easily have been a perfect film, but some soggy screenwriting in the middle and some very weak actors manage to bring the grade down a point or so.
I would highly recommend this to horror and thriller fans. It's 'And Then There Were None' with axes and animal masks, and while this may not be a very original premise, its' execution (no pun intended) is absolutely spot on.
MY THREE WORDS
Macabre, energetic, gory.
the father sounded like he belonged in a soap opera but anyways YAAASSSSSSSS
"Why the fuck not?"
I still love u, You're Next.
Wingard only nails (sorry) pieces here. Hammering 2x4s and camera flashes in the basement are intense and economic, but they're bright spots against bungled family drama and no sense of parallel action. Vinson is believable in both ways she's used, but YOU'RE NEXT thinks it's a Lucky McKee joint. Not with lines like "Fuck me next to your dead mother." Not even close.
I was a little surprised by this one. You're Next is another in a history of home invasion films that seem to be the rage now thanks to the popularity of the Strangers and The Purge. It follows a family getting together in their nice upscale home for a wedding anniversary. There is the mom and the dad, their three sons and one daughter. And of course all the significant others. No kids though. Suddenly they are attacked while meeting for the family dinner. The rest of the film deals with their attempts to survive with a few interesting although a couple predictable turns along the way.
I liked You're Next, but I didn't love it. I feel as though…
A full length version of most of Wes Craven's "mouse trap" endings. For me, the intimidation factor of the antagonists was sorely diminished once they were given greedy motives and average shmo personalities.
"I want you to fuck me on this bed next to your dead mom."
Best use of a blender in film history.
Not a bad movie. Typical slash, kill horror film with a twist ending. The kills are creative. The characters are fairly interesting. You want to watch a good horror flick? This should be next.
