As You're Next changes from grimly scary to an over-the-top gore fest, Wingard should have gone back and consulted those '70s films where not everything has to be explained.

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?

Tthis run-of-the-mill slash-'em-up flick has been floating around for two years looking for a distributor. Unfortunately, it found one.
September 1, 2013
There comes a point where the difference between bad-on-purpose and just-plain-bad is wholly academic.
August 30, 2013
... not especially original or complex, but it might deliver the goods for genre aficionados.

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.
August 29, 2013
The film's big problem is only too familiar. The victims are so cliched that we never care about them, still less identify with them.
August 29, 2013
Horror fans may indulge this movie; I found it derivative and forced.
August 29, 2013
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.
August 29, 2013
Too often, audience expectations are built up only for the payoff to fall short.
August 28, 2013
Better than expected but still nothing to get too excited about.
August 28, 2013
You're Next is far too derivative to appear to anyone but hardcore slasher-movie fans with low-standards.
August 27, 2013
An unevenly acted, moderately efficient home-invasion picture with an old-as-the-hills plot Scotch-taped to it.
August 27, 2013
"You're Next" is a simultaneously nihilistic and grossly incompetent horror homage.
August 27, 2013
Fairly routine brunette-fighting-for-survival stuff with a liberal dose of dark humour.
August 26, 2013
Outside of this assembling of like minds, not many actual ideas are generated.
August 26, 2013
A mediocre, late-summer slasher, filled with pointless carnage.
August 24, 2013
Smug and unfocused, falling prey to the very genre clichés it presumes to upend.
August 23, 2013
You're Next aims for the middle and lands there.
August 23, 2013
Yet another home-invasion body-count movie, the just-released 2011 effort You're Next adds humor to the mix - with mixed results...
