A slasher movie that happily embraces the more ridiculous aspects of the genre, You’re Next is the most amount of fun a horror movie has offered in years. Funny, fast paced and ever so slightly demented, it overcomes a lack of any genuine scares through crowd pleasing death scenes and a heroine with common sense and brutal survival instincts. Director Adam Wingard impressively mixes his influences, creating a refreshing home invasion thriller that somehow doubles as the world’s worst family reunion. And in Sharni Vinson’s Erin he’s provided us with one of cinema’s great horror leads – smart, strong and awesomely vicious.
