You're Next Banner

Injecting the home-invasion thriller with fresh DNA, Adam Wingard's "You're Next" strays just enough from formula to tweak our jaded appetites. -- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

Funny and tense, rather than hilarious and terrifying, You're Next doesn't rip up the rulebook but it's definitely read it. -- Matt Glasby, Total Film

Most of these characters are disagreeable, so the prospect of their imminent demise isn't too upsetting. -- Mark Jenkins, Washington Post

This is smart, frightening, and funny material that's an invigorating kick in the genre's ass. -- Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies

A film of repetition, a bloody dance consisting of three steps: stab, scream, repeat. -- Scott Bowles, USA Today

It clicks as an exercise in suspense and well-paced, slowly unfolding answers. -- Frank Lovece, Newsday
