You're Next Reviews
In addition, when the whole family gets together for dinner and discussion, that's when an argument starts between Crispian and his brother Drake, played by Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies & A Horrible Way To Die). SUDDENLY, Drake gets shot, with a crossbow arrow that comes flying through a nearby window. Erin notices three masked men outside holding weapons, and that's when she knows some sh#t is about to hit the fan.
I really enjoyed this film from the start. It had an interesting prologue, well done camera work, some humor, an awesome style of throwback music, well written characters, and one of the most badass final girls I've seen in years. I honestly believe, that Erin will go down in scream queen history with Neve Campbell ,Jamie Lee Curtis, and Heather LangenKamp.
Even though this genre has been done before, with films like The Strangers, Panic Room, and The Purge. I believe You're Next stands on it's own. Mainly because it's not afraid to do it's own thing. Such as, the chemistry between all the actors, it keeps you guessing (Erin's past), has an interesting twist, and it keeps you wanting more (especially with the way it ends).
Director Adam Wingard crafts together an amazing movie. However, in my opinion, his even better talent is working with the score, unique editing, old school style and influences of filmmaking.
I truly do feel like this is one of the best horror movies in a very long time. The anticipation/word of mouth of this movie had me wanting to view it for months. It's different, especially the style techniques, the gore is for a reason, the writing is awesome, it has direction, the pacing is just right, and the score. The ending to this movie goes crazy, Erin is a badass babe, and a twist I didn't expect. I'm very interested in seeing what Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett have next. I am a fan of everyone involved with this film, and I had an excellent time viewing You're Next, and I believe you will as well. I am more than proud to give You're Next a...
At first glance it may seem another generic slasher flick, but You're Next is full of unique surprises and twists that will make you love the genre all over again.
A little disappointing in that everything was just motivated by money, but aside from that, everything else was great.
For a home invasion film, this is quite enjoyable.
It brings nothing new to the table, but it's thrilling and quite bloody, one worth a watch for any fan of Friday the 13th and Halloween.

Sharmi Vinson is the good and the only cast member who gives a good performance, but that is not even half as good compared to Shauna McDonald in The Descent. At times poorly made, this horror film lacks a logical story and any kind of emotion, but as an exercise in violence, it is much enjoyable for all those who can stand it.
