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…
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…
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…
Looking For The Magic
One of the best in horror. Director knows what he's doing.
A darkly funny, scary movie that sometimes feels like it's too much. But at the same time, director Adam Wingard uses his frame so effectively that it's hard not to be really uncomfortable as things evolve and the plot unfolds. A fine homage to the great John Carpenter.
What the fuck
SHE REALLY DID THAT
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
No that's okay, he was ahead of me.
This is the movie I decided to ring in my birthday with early in the morning.
It's a movie I've grown to like more and more with each subsequent viewing. This viewing was no exception. Raising my rating from four stars to four-and-a-half.
What can I say? I know this movie doesn't seem that special at face value, but I remember the first time watching this with some of my family and having my first vivid appreciation for filmmaking as a whole. While the general concept isn't that interesting, the script, pacing, and even the soundtrack is really good. This is something I wish I would have made.
A rarity, it seems: an entertainingly adequate contemporary low budget slasher film.
(Working on organizing it by similar aesthetic.)
