A decent watch
2 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After seeing the trailers for this movie, for quite a while now, I was actually really eager to see this movie, and it's the first mainstream slasher movie that I've been excited about for quite a while and for once, gladly it's not a crappy remake.

As soon as I started it I was intrigued and was hooked all the way through. The movie starts off with a double murder, and then we start to meet the family members arriving at an isolated cabin for the parent's anniversary. Okay surprise, surprise you get the typical set up, a house in the middle of nowhere, no phones are all the typical set up we've seen many times before. But that doesn't make this movie in any way bad, in fact I found this movie rather enjoyable, especially when the killers show up, three of them in fact wearing animal masks, which makes the whole ordeal rather frightening and unsettling.

There are moments of great shock and great impact, like when the first family member gets knocked off, and the remaining members are left ducking and taking cover, and the death scenes are cool and gruesome, but the only thing that kinda lacks are the characters, as they are written rather thinly and very absent minded, I know okay you gets that in nearly all these types of movies, but in this one, they are especially stupid and mean, for a family unit, it's as if they don't care about each other, like letting their youngest daughter run outside and leaving a family member alone in the bedroom alone to get hacked to pieces, and the way they run off alone is rather unbelievable even for a movie of this kind.

But that doesn't make this movie in any way bad, it's all the more fun and the only cast member worth mentioning is Erin played brilliantly by Sharni Vinson takes the final girl role to a whole new and exciting level and also the twist in the plot does explain things rather well and wraps everything up nicely.

All in all "You're next" is a fun paced slasher, that okay a bit sloppy in places but still packs a punch and with a cool final girl who really makes this movie a decent watch.
