A family reunion turns into a full-on massacre when a gang of masked killers invade a sprawling country mansion on a ruthless mission of murder. Paul (Rob Moran) and Aubrey Davison (Barbara Crampton) are about to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and they've invited their grown-up children out to the country to share in the revelry. The first to arrive are Crispian (A.J. Bowen) and his new girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson). It isn't long before the rest of the family has filed in as well, and the party gets under way. Later, at the dinner table, old sibling rivalries begin to resurface and parental preferences quickly become apparent. Just as tensions begin to flare up, however, a crossbow arrow blasts through the glass window and panic sets in. The family is under attack.

Watch the movie You're Next because of one character
You're Next is your basic break-in horror film. I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie even though the characters were rather basic throughout, with one huge exception.
If you see this movie, see it for the character named Erin, played by Sharni Vinson. She makes this movie. Without her this would be just an average film. Unlike so many horror films where female characters scream and do absurd things because they are terrified out of their minds, Erin takes a survival leadership approach. You're Next would be just an average film without Erin.
Without a doubt a different take on the female character within a horror film. And that is why I recommend seeing this movie.
