Returning home for their parents wedding anniversary the dysfunctional Davison family will have to band together to survive the night as a band of mysterious killers descends upon their house. All hope appears to be lost for Felix (Nicholas Tucci), Zee (Wendy Glenn), Crispian (AJ Bowen), Drake (Joe Swanberg), Kelly (Margaret Laney), Aimee (Amy Seimetz), Tariq (Ti West), Paul (Rob Moran), and Aubrey (Barbra Crampton); until Crispian’s girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson) shows her hidden talent for survival. No question, darkness will descend, but who will survive and why?yourenextSlasher, spatter, and splatter through and through this latest offering from Director Adam Wingard follows the rules of cinema horror to the T. Machetes? Yup. Piano wire? Yup. Crossbow? Uh huh. Really big axe? Yep that too. So…we’re not exactly scoring points in the death creativity department, something slasher fans are generally quite particular of. But, uncomfortable laughs o plenty, and quotable moments in spades make this ironically more fun than expected. In the fright department, a few jump scares spook the audience early on but the rest of the film plays out more suspense than scare, so it goes. If slashers are your thing, well here’s some decent B fodder. All others, eh, look elsewhere. You’re Next is rated R.
