Plot Summary:

"The story of the Davison family who come under attack from a group of sadistic murderers during a family reunion getaway. Barricaded in the vacation home, they fight off a barrage of attacks from both inside and outside the house. But the masked killers don't count on the yet-to-be-cast Erin, the young girlfriend of the eldest Davison son whose mysterious past has made her very difficult to kill."

Arriving on DVD and Blu-ray here in the UK next Monday with heaps of praise behind it, is home invasion slasher Youíre Next was hailed as something special. Sadly, for me, it failed to live up to the hype.

The film starts with an older man (cult film director Larry Fessenden in a cameo) having sex with a co-ed. He goes to shower and she decides to wander round his glass fronted house in her panties with her titties hanging out (straight away itís as though Scream never happened) despite the fact that the porch light keeps coming on and she suspects that someone is outside (no prizes for guessing whoís next there). Youíre Next continues this odd blend of comedy and horror, stupidity and smartness throughout its 95 minute running time both winding up and pleasing its audience to mixed results.

In terms of casting, Sharni Vinson (star of Bait 3D and the forthcoming remake of Patrick) earns her stripes here in a tour de force performance. She is ably supported by many familiar genre faces including Barbara Crampton and director Ti West, so thereís a lot to look forward to for the hard-core horror crowd and thatís before clever nods to A Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween are worked in to the action.

I expected a lot from this movie and it didnít deliver on all of its promises. I hated the soundtrack and score, the characters dumb decisions and the comedy aspect, but I enjoyed the nods and winks, casting and of course the masks.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Apart from one truly terrifying jolt Youíre Next was a strange film which I didnít warm to as well as I expected to.

Comments  "It was okay for what it was.... but then again, I didn't really expect much out of it to begin with. It seemed more like a comedy to me and I found myself laughing out loud with my boyfriend quite a few times. I gave this movie 3 out of 5 stars because I'm feeling a little generous today and also because I liked the ending."
