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.
Horror - This is a very violent horror film with an edge of dark humor. There
are no recognizable name actors in the cast. Language, sexual
content, and constant, bloody violence make the film inappropriate
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 36 moviegoers:
Unfortunately, we weren't able to collect very many reviews for this movie but these few reviews clearly show that "You're Next" is a good but not great movie. Rarely have I seen such a high percentage of good/average reviews, especially for a horror movie. Usually the reviews are very mixed, with lots of very high reviews and lots of low reviews.
Lionsgate's YOU'RE NEXT takes one of the most terrifying film genres, the home-invasion movie, and turns it on its head -- adding dimension, drama, and bone-chilling realism to one of life's most universal fears. The story follows an upper-class family, the Davisons, who are as rich as they are estranged. In an earnest attempt to bring everyone back together, Aubrey and Paul Davison decide to celebrate their wedding anniversary by inviting their four children and their significant others to a family reunion at their remote and slightly rundown weekend estate.
At first it seems like decades-old sibling rivalries will derail any hope of reconciliation. But that quickly, and very abruptly, becomes the least of the Davisons' concerns when their home comes under siege by a mask-wearing team of crossbow-bearing assailants. The family has no idea who's attacking them, why they're under attack, or if the attackers are inside or outside the cavernous, creaking house. All they know for certain is that nobody is safe.
