Well, that was... gory.

So, in my continuous recap of movies that you think are going to suck, but are actually quite good. It's time to include: You're Next.

The slasher film directed by Adam Wingard is a very good piece to watch over the weekend, alone, with friends, with your significant other, and why not... with your family. Mom, dad, brothers, sisters, everyone is welcome to see the story of a very out of the ordinary family reunion.

Starring Sharni Vinson as Erin, a sweet and down to earth young women in love with the son of a very rich family, this movie takes you to examine a whole other level of family drama.


The family reunites to celebrate the anniversary of the parents, and there one by one each of the family members, their 3 sons, a daughter and their respective life-partners, significant others, boyfriends, girlfriends, or whatever, are gory, visually, dramatically, bloody, traumatically, explicitly killed one by one.

Is not bad at all, the movie balances dark takes, splashy blood to the face, action sequences and very close, close-ups to give the viewers an experience that doesn't disappoint.

The story, on the other hand, is not weak at first, but then as the movie moves forward, is obvious who the real masterminds behind the massacre really are.

Sharni's performance is great, she is the key element in the film, without her, the story wouldn't have been as strong. Believe me, you have to watch her closely.

Here I leave the trailer, and my recommendation is to sit and enjoy the slasher ride this film offers, is actually quite good. I kinda wish I had seen this in the cinema and not at home, but I didn't know about this film until it was added to Netflix a couple of weeks ago.

My recommendation for you all is to watch it, and let me know what you think of it.
