It doesn't have great direction or a particularly above average script, but it does have a great addition to the final girl trope in the form of Erin. Also, kudos to the music, which was pretty effective.

Surprisingly well done horror movie. The first act is borderline terrible but the film redeems itself with the last two acts being really great because of some stylish kills and a fantastic performance from the lead.

With the majority of big studio horror flicks being pure crap these days, it's always nice to see an indie like this come along to put a new spin on a familiar theme. You're Next starts off like the predictable home invasion flick, but things take a surprising turn in the second act with some nicely executed twists and dark humour. Director Adam Wingrad moves everything along with plenty of gore and suspense, playing on the genre's familiarity and then turning it on its head. Sharni Vinson carries the film extremely well, and it's always nice to see scream queen Barbra Crampton back in the genre. You're Next is by no means groundbreaking, but it's entertaining as hell and manages to throw a few new ideas into the tired home invasion genre. With so many garbage horror movies out there these days, it's easy to recommend You're Next.

I would rate it worse but it did have unintentional humor and, surprisingly, an interesting place twist. great flick to watch with friends if you want to make fun of a movie.

Pretty ridiculous and the ending even more so.

This is one of those classic-overlooked-film. I first watched this back in 2012, and at that time there was no other movie like this where it ignites your curiosity of putting the lead character, Erin and Bourne in the same house just to see who can outsmart the other. It makes you forget the debouchery that was StepUp3 and be like, "...wait that was the girl in StepUp3??!". If you think Gadot and Theron set the bar for badass leading ladies in 2017, well back then in 2012 Vinson set the bar for me and actually inspired me to get back in martial arts. This is one of those movies I would recommend to other and just refuse to spoil it until they see it for themselves. But most definitely after watching this you'll want to double, maybe triple the security around your house, because you never know if you could be Next :3

This is an outstanding movie with great acting and plot twists. Vinson is the star of the movie and delivers an exceptional performance. A must watch for horror buffs.

The bad-ass protagonist and the brutally awesome bloody deaths mostly make up for the bad acting, terrible characters and dopey story.
½ August 14, 2017
Between a 6/10 and 7/10, by slasher standards, the writing is good, with interesting turns and surprises. And the acting isn't bad, either.
½ August 10, 2017
A fresh, original take on the survival horror trope with a strong female lead.
½ July 28, 2017
An ingenious mix of gore and drama with one of the most badass characters.

Big disappointments like this horror movie are pitiful not for the terrible attempt to make it "modern" by putting a great [heroine] as - invincible - but the unability that have these filmmakers to write something rich, convincing, affordable, and less catastrophic in every sense. 43/100

You're Next is smart, satirical, gory and fast-paced. The film plays around with many tropes of the genre and manages to come across as simultaneously fresh and familiar. Adam Wingard's strange home invasion flick is a brilliant entry into storied annals of horror.

Adam Wingard presents probably one of his best movies to date, yet still hasn't perfected his formula for a great horror blockbuster. Sharni Vinson is by far the the best part about this movie presenting us with an almost Sydney Prescott style performance, the tension is nail-biting and keeps building throughout the movie, but the first two acts of this movie are rather boring, things don't really get going until the third act and by then most people have given up on the movie entirely. Overall You're Next is a fun horror movie, but hardly the cult classic people were expecting.

Smart and Twisted! Definitely an underrated horror film my personal favorite!
