    The Executioner Part II

    Mind-bogglingly bad to the point of accidental surrealism.

    You're Next

    ★★★★½

    Clever, suspenseful riff on the home invasion genre. Great cast of genre favorites (A.J. Bowen, Barbara Crampton), indie directors (Joe Swanberg, Ti West) and a movie star waiting to happen (Sharni Vinson) breathe life into Simon Barrett's witty script. Director Adam Wingard keeps things moving at a brisk pace and the whole thing is tied together with a couple of clever twists and nice score that reminded me of John Carpenter's best work as a film composer. Well worth seeing.
