Film Of The Week: YOU'RE NEXT (2013)
When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped... until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.REVIEW:
I don't normally watch horror movies, but I decided to give You're Next a try. Some horror films definitely have an action-oriented appeal to them, and so if I do see a horror movie, those are the ones I normally go for. That said, the concept used for this type of film stood out to me in a way that allowed me to enjoy this latest film from director Adam Wingard.
I'm not a huge horror film buff, despite having seen a few in my own life. But to my point here though, what I really love most is how action-oriented it feels. Sure, there are moments of suspense and thrills, and some moments of predictability that make you roll your eyes. And that's pretty much any horror film. But the biggest scenes with the most fun are with Vinson while she is evening the score against the killers, wounding them, maiming them from time to time with booby traps, and getting down and dirty and finishing them off.
4th time watching You’re Next - this time spent it introducing the film to mates back home in UK. http://t.co/2fn617CACL
