More accomplished and satisfying than one might expect.

YOU'RE NEXT is, unabashedly, yet another "nuclear family and/or rich yuppies besieged by masked psycho killers at vacation home" slasher, right down to the obligatory "last girl" element. But while the movie's schema is completely typical, its execution—smart script, decent cast, solid direction by Adam Wingard—is exemplary.

The major detail YOU'RE NEXT gets right is to provide actual motivation for both the villains' kill spree and for the heroine's ability to survive the abattoir (other than being yet another innocent virgin with gumption). This alone is enough to place the film at the pinnacle of its sub-genre. Moreover, director Wingard and screenwriter Simon Bennett demonstrate a talent for side-stepping annoying cliches. The assembled victims numbers ten instead of the usual half-dozen, with not one idiot teen in the lot; the squealing, screaming, helpless characters are winnowed out with audience-considerate dispatch so the more fit and bright can make the best of their situation. Meanwhile, refreshingly, the murderers are NOT portrayed as unstoppable killing machines until the final ten minutes: one even gets short of breath and needs a time- out!

The pacing and shock effects are crisp; the moments of black comedy are sparingly, intelligently planted.

All told, far more accomplished and satisfying than a genre fan has any right to expect.

What the hell is mumblegore?!?

Not even 10 years ago, all horror movie critics were full of praise for the so-called "splat-pack"; a bunch of young and talented new arrival directors in the horror genre. Right now in 2013, we don't hear much anymore about most of this unofficial pack (including Neil Marshall, Greg McLean, Darren Lynn Bousman and others), but they seem to have been replaced with a new army of horror prodigies. Lately, all we hear about are Ti West, Adam Wingard, Joe Swanberg and Simon Barrett. Moreover they seem to be close friends, appear as actors in each other's movies and the type of films they make even received its very own subgenre name. Mumblegore, whatever the hell the characteristics may be. Do they really deserve this honor? Not quite. Ti West made a few worthwhile movies ("The Roost", "House of the Devil"), but their previous group project "V/H/S" was lamentable and this effort – released with a delay of nearly two years – is only just slightly above average.

"You're Next" opens very promising and traditional, with a mixture of good old 80's slasher setting and a post-2000 brutal home invasion concept. The wealthy and loving Davison parents host their four children and their partners at their remote countryside mansion to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. The family dinner unfolds as normal, quarreling siblings included, but the party gets rudely interrupted when three masked and maniacal perpetrators attack the house. The sudden attack as well as the first four or five killings are extremely tense and provide the film with a uniquely mortifying atmosphere. Wingard manages to hold the suspense for a strong half hour, but then awkwardly reveals all the main plot twists and compensates the suspense with far-fetched character developments and grotesque black humor. The film remains somewhat enjoyable, thanks to the apt performance of lead actress (and kick-ass lady) Sharni Vinson and inventive (gruesome) death traps. What I appreciated most about this film was that they cast the wondrous Barbara Crampton as the mother. The horror diva of "Re-Animator" and "From Beyond" is well past 50 years of age, but she still looks fabulous!

Very good and VERY gory

This is all about a bunch of siblings and their significant others, gathered together to celebrate their parents 35th anniversary. They're all in a huge house in the middle of nowhere. The siblings don't get along and are arguing almost right away when they are suddenly attacked from men in creepy animal masks outside. The family is trapped in the house, their cell phones don't work and the men outside are intent on killing everyone.

OK--I pretty much figured out who was doing it and why (they do give you plenty of clues) so there was no big mystery. Still the film worked. It's never dull, the tension builds up nicely, all the acting is good and it's gory. VERY VERY gory! Blood and guts go flying every which way in this movie. It really works when the family gets one of the killers and gives them what's coming to them. Whether that's a good or bad thing is up to you. Even better the characters are believable and act exactly as you would expect people to act in this situation. Most of the women in this film are strong, fearless and fight back which is another point in its favor. There's also some intentional humor with some very funny lines that actually help to lessen the tension. Also it's great to see Barbara Crampton ("Re-Animator", "From Beyond") back in a horror film and Sharni Vinson is a FANTASTIC Final Girl. There's also a few twists at the end that I didn't see coming. Fast, vicious, very gory and (in a way) fun. Worth seeing.
