 You’re Next (2013) Synopsis:

You’re Next (2013) Review:

You’re Next” is a home invasion/survival film in the vein of “Funny Games”, “The Strangers” or again “The Last House on the Left”. As usual in this film’s genre, you’ll find here the typical bunch of people being assaulted by strangers in a remote house. In that “You’re Next” brings no novelty, but does a great job at delivering the great tension and suspense associated with this specific genre of horror.

Where the film truly excels, is that it adds some really clever elements of crime and comedy to the genre, making it really unique. The film does a fantastic job of giving true/false hints about who could be involved in the invasion, and you really spend an hour wondering if it’s true, and who could it be, just like it is in these great Italian giallos. Second, the film, which starts on a serious tone, gradually and subtly incorporates comedy elements. Towards the end it is hilarious, but never overrated or absurd, keeping the film on the horror track at all times.
Thereee is also a great deal of violence in the film, and gore-hounds will find their lot of brutal kills. The main actress, and the character she plays, also needs to be mentioned for she is, at the image of the movie, a real bad-ass!
While being truly unique and innovative, You Next remain true to the home invasion genre. The balance between horror, crime and comedy are perfect. A great surprise and amongst the best film of 2013 so far.
