Long Story Short:
During a family reunion in a remote vacation house the Davison Family’s dinner finds an abrupt ending when masked people try to enter the house, who seem to have only one goal: Kill the whole family. But do they have a motive?

I was very excited to see You’re Next, and I didn’t mind that it started like an average teen horror flick. As it progressed it showed some bad ass jump moments which are hard to find in the most recent horror movies. Besides the blood that looked like curry ketchup I think it offered some decent (and gruesome) gore effects as well, but also the right amount of humor. However, for it to be a successful movie the most essential ingredients was missing: Likable characters. We didn’t get to know them or their motives. Furthermore the story and especially the conclusions didn’t satisfy and seemed very half- hearted. There could have been so many great explanations for what happened or why things took a turn, so the outcome could have been much smoother. And the Title You’re Next and the way they used it in the movie was just stupid senseless. At the end of the day I enjoyed myself and the 90 minutes went by pretty fast, but my brain felt betrayed.

Rating: 6/10
