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?
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.
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.
