Consensus: You're Next's energetic and effective mix of brutal gore and pitch black humor will please horror buffs and beyond.

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.

Time Out

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

You're Next made me jump out of my seat three times. In scary movie terms that's surely job done.

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.

Home invasion thrillers seem to come along every five minutes... Kudos then to indie director Adam Wingard for kicking in with some fresh ideas.

Once past a formulaic opening, the picture opens up into something else entirely, ending up as one of the better slasher movies to hit the big screen [in decades].

"You're Next" is a simultaneously nihilistic and grossly incompetent horror homage.

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.

Daily Dead

Screenwriter Simon Barrett masterfully blends horror and pitch black comedy throughout his story, and continuously finds clever ways to subvert the typical cat and mouse games we're used to seeing in these types of projects.

You're Next starts out as a fairly routine home invasion thriller, but when the action kicks in it turns into something new altogether. It's funny,… More
