One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, YOU'RE NEXT reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped...until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all. (c) Lionsgate

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Given its title, you can be forgiven for assuming that Adam Wingard's home-invasion thriller will be just another blood-soaked body-count flick. But You're Next is better than that. A lot better."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"Home invasion thrillers seem to come along every five minutes... Kudos then to indie director Adam Wingard for kicking in with some fresh ideas."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"You're Next might be one of the most audience-gratifying horror films I've seen in quite a long time, rewarding the viewers as much as it likes to screw with them."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"Horror fans might take some enjoyment from all the grisly deaths, but it's not long before a nagging sense of killing fatigue sets in. Call it 'goredom', if you will."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Amidst all the slashing and killing, director Adam Wingard (working off a script by Simon Barrett) injects a good deal of dark fun into the proceedings, especially when it comes to unmasking the psychos terrorising the family."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"By slasher standards, the writing is good, with interesting turns and surprises. And the acting isn't bad, either, though Vinson is the one to remember."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Maybe, in another time and place, and with different actors and a better director, it might have worked. But this thing collapses right from the get-go."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Not the perfect horror movie, but GORE-iffic nonetheless."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Tthis run-of-the-mill slash-'em-up flick has been floating around for two years looking for a distributor. Unfortunately, it found one."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"If you're a fan of clever stalk 'n' slash horror movies, 'You're Next' should be your next choice. It's a fresh spin on the ever-popular 'home invasion' movies that have been around for years."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Fairly routine brunette-fighting-for-survival stuff with a liberal dose of dark humour."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Satisfies the expectations of Midnight Madness gore hounds - and then it happily goes about exceeding those expectations."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"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?"
‑ Jeff Beck,
"A sick, scary, and exciting amalgam of "Fortress," and "Straw Dogs," with a hint of Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game.""
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Director Luis BuŮuel would be proud of the scabrous scene in which the Davison clan sits down to supper and the civilized bourgeois meal turns to rot before our eyes."
‑ Gerald Peary, Arts Fuse
