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!

I liked this movie! Some unexpected, but along the lines of what I expected. I'm a converted horror fan, so I enjoyed this one! Whoever did the score did a good job. Believe it or not, there are a fair share of laughs in this one. Very entertaining. I would recommend!

Awesome, action packed, great twist and a surprisingly good horror film.

Found this film boring, the acting forced and quite jarring.

You're Next, another horror film based on the premise of an home invasion that was way over hyped. However, this film has a refreshing new take on the whole genre by making the antagonist a girl who is more terrifying than the killers. A genuine fun thrill ride with an outstanding lead girl and a good blend of horror and fun.

A terrifying, satirical, brilliantly crafted horror flick that is endlessly watchable. I sincerely hope that Adam Wingard is here to stay.

A great take on the home invasion/slasher genre, with an epic female lead performance, a smart and violent plot, and some fitting dark humor.

Boasting a rock-solid performance from Sharni Vinson, dazzlingly energetic direction from Adam Wingard and a sharply written script from Simon Barrett, You're Next is a once-in-a-lifetime synthesis of home invasion anxiety, dysfunctional family dramedy, unrestrained gore and subversive twists.

One of the best horror movies I've seen in a long time. It was lots of fun. Great twist on the home invasion genre. It was very gory and had great kills. It had one of the best female leads for a horror movie I've seen in a while. Great ending that wrapped everything up.

"It's a thrill ride, a reminder of when horror films were fun, and almost never disappoints"

I'd been wanting to see this thing forever, so when it finally hit Blu-ray I snapped it up immediately and gave it a look. I'm pleased to say that this siege film *definitely* lived up to the film fest hype from the past few years while it's toured around and was well worth the wait.

Give it a rental at the very least.

For its genre, it's an amazing mix of horror and comedy. Complete with a brilliant lead actress!
½ January 18, 2017
Darkly hilarious and with plenty of gore to please horror fans. Adam Wingard truly established himself as a promising genre director.
January 16, 2017
The acting isn't bad, movie is just about an hour and 30 minutes,which is a good thing. Not bad for a home invasion movie, doesn't have too many "Wtf would they do that, are they stupid?!' moments. However it's still cliche heavy and you can basically guess what's gonna happen next most of the time. If you have nothing better to watch, give it a try, it's not a total time waster.
