Premiered as part of Midnight Madness at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, where it was picked up by Lionsgate for distribution. However, even though the film subsequently played at other festivals, it was not given a wide release until August 2013. See more »

"You're Next" (2011) is more close to "Scream" then "Friday The 13th". It's a very well made horror slasher, which thinks a bit out of the box. It has some nice surprises along the way, and is involving from start till finish.
Overall, "You're Next" doesn't digs really deep into a new ground, but it has some surprises barely seen in others genre's flicks. Acting is nice, directing is very solid, and script good. Sure, it's not a very great flick, but at running time 1 h 30 min it barely drags and tense. If you like this genre, you will sure like "You're Next".
