You're Next

You're Next (2011) (released 2013)

Directed by Adam Wingard

7/10



This film that was apparently made in 2011 but will not see regular release till about a month from now has been a festival darling. It's easy to see why because it is a lot of fun. The set up is not all that original as we see the Davison family coming under attack during their wedding anniversary getaway, the gang of mysterious killers soon learns that one of victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back. The film tries to take slashers into a realistic setting and manages to for a good deal of the film. A couple of characters are playing it too over t he top from the get go but the rest of the cast do well enough. It reminds me in some ways of the 2008 film The Strangers but it plays out remarkably different and is much better. In the end you have a familiar but fun slasheresque film that may be the best of its kind in recent decades.
