You're Next

Home-invasion horror, the big winner at Fantastic Fest 2011 (including Best Horror Film). When a gang of masked, axe-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped until a guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all. 

Co-starring a coterie of young horror directors, with Aussie Sharni Vinson (Step Up 3D, Bait 3D) in the lead as college student Erin, You're Next opens with a brutal murder in an upscale rural home. Soon after, the various members of the Davison family and their partners gather in their grand home next door for a get-together rudely interrupted by intruders wearing cute animal masks and killing them one by one with a not-so-sweet mix of axes, crossbows, machetes and piano wire. But while the Davison family panic, as the killers expect, Erin displays an aptitude for retaliation that'll shock them all.

There may be no great originality on display... but there's certainly plenty of energy.

Funny and tense, rather than hilarious and terrifying... If all horror comedies were this good we’d be laughing – and squirming.

Fairly routine brunette-fighting-for-survival stuff with a liberal dose of dark humour.

Strays just enough from formula to tweak our jaded appetites.

It's scary and often graphic, but as the action escalates to the point of absurdity, the spirit of early Sam Raimi starts to creep into both the action and the dialogue.

A home-invasion, cabin-in-the-woods-style horror, with a spirited, breakout performance from one of our own.

A nasty little slasher film that starts poorly but gets better once most of the cast has been butchered.
