Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.
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. But who are the savage invaders donning eerie farm-animal masks, and what is their motive behind slaughtering everyone in the house? No one is safe as the blood starts to flow, but Erin is determined to see the ...
When Kelly is thrown through the window of the neighbor's house, the actor who lands on the floor in the pile of glass is wearing pants, while Kelly was wearing a skirt as she ran towards the house, and is wearing a skirt again right before the masked killer kills her on the floor. See more »
You never want to do anything interesting any more.

Fuck me next to your dead mom then.

If you're expected some "Scream" type of film, you're in for a surprise. The story did little in introducing you to all the character, but after you meet everyone, they're all let lose and scattered in awesome violence. Once you start to piece everything together, it starts to become a theme of survival. Unlike other slasher/action film that leads the character wandering helplessly through the scene and somehow end up surviving, You're Next takes you on a thrill ride where you're always on the edge of your seat rooting at every brilliant attempt of their survival. The dialogues are simple and humorous in many of the scenes, but you'll find yourself watching this only to wonder what'll happen at the end.
