The best thing I can say about the violent indie horror/thriller You're Next is that it had a kick-ass heroine and some creepy animal masks.

Not every slasher can be as smart as "The Cabin in the Woods" or "Scream," but if they weren't going to at least try something new (or at least come up with a better mid-way reveal), then why bother at all?

You're Next aims for the middle and lands there.

The characters are written so absent-mindedly that it's on the verge of world record stupidity. Its poor writing, bad acting, and stupidly predictable outcome ruin the few good things You're Next has going for it.

You're Next is far too derivative to appear to anyone but hardcore slasher-movie fans with low-standards.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Although the set-up remains distinctly stupid - the plot exists purely to service its own excesses - those who like to laugh at moments of gross violence should find their ribs are involuntarily tickled.

While the filmmakers clearly did their homework on how to make a scary gorefest, they fail to give us something that feels particularly new or different.

Too often, audience expectations are built up only for the payoff to fall short.

Smug and unfocused, falling prey to the very genre clichés it presumes to upend.

"You're Next" is a simultaneously nihilistic and grossly incompetent horror homage.

"You're Next" tries, somewhat valiantly, to add new twists to the usual bloody horror-flick shenanigans. But aside from a few fresh chords, it's same-old, same-old.

Tthis run-of-the-mill slash-'em-up flick has been floating around for two years looking for a distributor. Unfortunately, it found one.

There comes a point where the difference between bad-on-purpose and just-plain-bad is wholly academic.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Outside of this assembling of like minds, not many actual ideas are generated.

Thin excuses to trot out the usual sequences of maniacs busting through windows and gleeful deaths that add layers of bloodlust-fueling cruelty the film's premise doesn't support.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Oh, it's horrific, all right: wooden performances and stilted exposition, punctuated by bouts of random bloody sadism.
Rich Cline

Wildly over-praised by audiences desperate for a scary horror movie, this film has little more than the germ of a solid idea followed by a series of predictable cliches.

a bit of a one trick pony - once the 'surprise' is revealed, it mostly just goes through the motions.

A mediocre, late-summer slasher, filled with pointless carnage.

A film of repetition, a bloody dance consisting of three steps: stab, scream, repeat.
