Pretty good home invasion movie. I wouldn't be disappointed if there was You 're Next 2. How can you not want to see scream queen of the 80's, Barbara Crampton, of Re-Animator and From Beyond fame again. Nice when these type of movies don't take themselves too seriously.

what i love about this film is that it's a throwback to late 80's/early 90's horror movies like APRIL FOOL'S DAY that mix dark humor in with slasher horror. the plots are roughly the same: a bunch of (rich) people gather for an event, usually a party on an island or some other out of the way place, and one by one they are picked off. it's a lot of fun, and you're next does it perfectly. one thing i really appreciated was the casting of the final girl. the 'final girl' is a horror movie trope where everyone dies except a girl who is usually a virgin, has a boy's name and is kind of a tomboy. in this case we have an awesome aussie, who wouldn't shy away from doing anything that would mean she'd stay alive.

A fairly good home invasion flick with a pretty good twist. For horror fans only though.

I gave this movie three stars because I typically enjoy this genre of film...you just know that almost everyone is going to die. The film introduces a large-ish number of characters, so it took me a minute to catch all the names and remember who was with whom, and there's certainly a nice twist on the usual home invasion plot device...my main complaint is that, while it's certainly watchable, it's also very derivative: When I was laying on the sofa watching this, I felt like I was playing a game of Spot The Movie: Elements of Strangers-Funny Games-Vacancy etc. Recommended if you like those films.

This is one of the better home invasion thrillers I’ve seen, with enough twists to keep you engaged (and guessing) until the very end.

About as scary as "Casper the unfriendly Ghost." Not much on cabins in the woods and dudes with crossbows but the masks were kind of a nice touch, maybe the only one. The 4 trailers preceding the main show made you wish you could switch to one of them instead but if you have 94 minutes of your life to waste, enjoy by all means.

Just awful....lol I'm very open minded about movies and realize that horror movies usually don't have the greatest of actors. But oh my. The acting was horrid. Didn't even finish it...lol

We open with a random murder and then move to a classic horror trope of dysfunctional family meets for an event. Said event is interrupted by a crossbow bolt to the head and then the usual shenanigans start. Then the usual shenanigans becomes a bit of a B movie and then that gets flipped too.

It knows its audience so that makes it more interesting and mildly enjoyable despite the three genre flips going on. I didn't fall in love with it - though they certainly courted me with the character of Erin and a death involving a common kitchen appliance - but it was a nice change from most home invasion/slasher films.

As a comedy, I would definitely give it an A+.

As a horror film, I would give it an epic fail.

The script alone is priceless.

At 1:10 into the movie, one of the characters sums it up perfectly in four words: ''What a fu*king disaster!''
