When Erin kills the last of the masked men in the basement, she is drenched with his blood (which is visible in the camera flashes as she stands and looks at him). However, when she goes back upstairs in the next scene, she has much less blood on her and no more blood in her bangs. See more »
You never want to do anything interesting any more.
I don't think that's a fair criticism.
Fuck me next to your dead mom then.

Bloody brutal and scary - already an instant genre classic..
"You're Next" was shown during different Festivals but wasn't released until 2 years later. Normally, that's not a good sign. With low expectations, I was in for a big surprise. It turns out "You're Next" isn't just a good horror/thriller, it's a blast for fans of the genre. And if you're not a fan, you'll still like it a lot. The cast is great, especially Sharni Vinson. I saw her a couple of times in the Australian soap "Home And Away" (my wife watches that..) but here she shows she can do way more than that. The score is eerie, with a nice addition of the Dwight Tilley Band "Looking for the Magic" (1977..!). If you saw the movie, you'll know the song. The killers in the masks are scary and there are a lot of brutal deaths with great special effects. Great, because there's no lousy CGI involved that haunts most genre movies these days.
Director Adam Wingard (V/H/S, Home Sick) did a great job. Highly recommended. More please !
