Storyline

A family reunion turns into a full-on massacre when a gang of masked killers invade a sprawling country mansion on a ruthless mission of murder. Paul (Rob Moran) and Aubrey Davison (Barbara Crampton) are about to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and they've invited their grown-up children out to the country to share in the revelry. The first to arrive are Crispian (A.J. Bowen) and his new girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson). It isn't long before the rest of the family has filed in as well, and the party gets under way. Later, at the dinner table, old sibling rivalries begin to resurface and parental preferences quickly become apparent. Just as tensions begin to flare up, however, a crossbow arrow blasts through the glass window and panic sets in. The family is under attack. But who are the savage invaders donning eerie farm-animal masks, and what is their motive behind slaughtering everyone in the house? No one is safe as the blood starts to flow, but Erin is determined to see the ...

Goofs

When Erin kills the last of the masked men in the basement, she is drenched with his blood (which is visible in the camera flashes as she stands and looks at him). However, when she goes back upstairs in the next scene, she has much less blood on her and no more blood in her bangs. See more »

Effective horror which refuses to be boxed in
21 December 2014 | by RicktingSee all my reviews

2013 was another lame year for horror, but this and The Conjuring showed a standard of horror not often seen in modern times. You're Next is a straight forward home invasion thriller in many ways, but it subverts genre clichés. It's just a group of masked intruders breaking into a family gathering and starting a brutal, bloody rampage but there's a sting in this tale. Packed with unpredictable scare sequences and twists, You're Next should be next on any horror buff's watch list. YN has its scary scenes but its primarily an effective mix of gore and pitch black humour, which makes it more interesting than the typical horror flick. With an excess of the red stuff, a lack of genuine structure and some repetitive stuff, those who don't care for horror films will be more exhausted than entertained and this certainly isn't without flaws, but it has to be admired for its energy and use of humour.

It's a well directed movie with a lot of punch and zest, and while it's not emphasizing scares there are suspenseful and frightening moments. I'm not a fan of gore, since it's often tedious and rarely scary, but this uses gore in an effective way and makes the film more intense and stylish. The black humour is very clever as well. What sets the film apart is its gloriously badass heroine, who is one of the coolest horror movie heroines of all time. YN can feel like a bit of a slight movie, but it's got brains and intensity that modern horror lacks and from the start you're drawn in by the normal seeming characters and stylish, gore soaked death scenes. It's quite a nasty film and certainly earns the 18 certificate, but it's a rare example where the gore actually feels stylish and frightening. Gripping, gory and deliriously unrestrained, YN is should definitely be watched over: The Ring, The Devil Inside, The Wicker Man (2006), Paranormal Activity or 90% of 21st century horror films.

8/10
