I’m not going to go on for pages about how much I loved You’re Next and how great of a film it actually is (I’ll save that for the podcast). I will just say if you love genre films you will love You’re Next. Director Adam Wingard’s You’re Next entails a family reunion being invaded by masked assailants, similar to the plot of home invasion films like The Strangers or Them. Writer Simon Barrett takes a overdone home invasion theme and makes it fresh, and more importantly fun again, with clever writing. The trailer for You’re Next does this film no justice what so ever. Take a chance and go see You’re Next not only because its a great film, but because it is important to support an independent like this film.
