You're Next

A family reunion becomes a bloodbath in this American home-invasion horror. Arriving at his parents’ holiday house, Crispian (AJ Bowen) and his Aussie girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson) make tense small talk with the siblings over dinner until a bigger problem emerges: an unseen assailant firing deadly arrows at them from outside. While most members of the family fly into a panic, Erin remains level-headed and in control, and turns out to know a surprising amount about weaponry.

The action that follows is fairly routine brunette-fighting-for-survival stuff with a liberal dose of dark humour. The cynical, nihilistic tone means you only miss slain characters for their comedy potential: the script’s witty approach to its dysfunctional family means the pre-attack set-up is enjoyable, but it’s hard to care about the characters’ fates. The focus is on humour and inventive horror (gruesome, elaborate deaths are the order of the day) and a key emotional twist in the tale comes too late. A solid watch for gore fans.
