You're Next is a very decent slasher film!! It is creepy and very gory. For me, it kind of went from scary to thrilling, the beginning being most jumpy while the mid-end was a joy ride all around. It's basically about a married couple called Paul and Aubrey celebrating their 35th anniversary in a secluded house on their getaway where Paul has plans to renovate as sort of a little project. At first it seems like a peaceful retreat until Aubrey insists she hears footsteps coming from upstairs and wants to leave immediately. The husband willingly checks it out but finds nothing. Their grown children, sons Crispian, Drake and Felix and daughter Aimee with their significant others also show up and Crispian tells his girlfriend Erin that the gathering will be "interesting" as they all haven't been together in a long time. After some arguing and bickering between brothers during dinner, they are interrupted by a furious bow and arrow attack from a group of freaky animal-masked killers coming from outside, murdering one of the members and then havoc begins. Characters scream, panic and run for cover while Erin seems to be the only one who knows how to use a weapon and has the most common sense in this frightening situation. But are the killers out there for a reason or is this just a random rampage? If you're not ready for extreme gore then this is certainly not for you. It is very bloody and violent. The language is strong with over 20 uses of the f-word, sh*t, [email protected]
, hell, some religious terms. Violence is very strong and gory including masked men carrying and using machetes, axes, rifles, knives and bow & arrows. Two families are seen attacked. Two couples are seen slashed and axed - their bodies are seen in a pool of blood while walls and mirrors are splattered. Killers in masks are seen in the windows, hiding throughout the house and there are some chase scenes. Lots of vicious beatings, bloody skulls, butchered eyes, brutal stabbings. A character uses a meat tenderizer on a character and his brains explode with lots of blood splatters. We often see the words "You're Next" written in blood on a wall or mirror after each killing. Other weapons of all sorts are used throughout like hammers, wooden boards and screwdrivers. Sexual content is not that bad...the scenes are quick, we have a non-graphic quick, brief sex scene in the beginning. A man takes a shower (no nudity) and a woman walks around her house with a revealing open shirt on (her breasts are covered). A man unhooks his girlfriends bra and her side-boob is revealed for 2 seconds until she puts it back on and says "she's not feeling it" so he walks away. A scene where a woman takes her top off revealing her bra and kisses her boyfriend on a bed next to his dead mother, she wants to go further but he pushes her away in disgust. A few pecks on the lips between couples. There's a bit of drinking and some prescription drug talk with some pills taken. Really enjoyed this! Absolutely not OK for kids or younger teens, 16+ only!!!
