I have seen over one hundred horror films, but in this day in age only half-assed remakes of decade old classics have been making it to the big screen. You’re Next, which was on my radar a year before its release, was a well thought out indie film that brought my nail biting habit to a new level. The camera effects paired with the score conjured up a unique ambiance of suspense.
Though you will not recognize any of the cast, the acting is relatively believable for this type of flick. Those who can’t act are killed off early, usually in an unorthodox fashion. The victims actually react logically to their situation and think through there options rationally, which is rare in this genre of film. This has little effect on the outcome since the textbook sociopaths moves are so calculating that nothing is left to chance. The weapons of choice that are both disturbing and effective and perfect suited to silently stalk their prey.
You will encounter many unsettling scenes, eerie revelations, many laughs, and a twist or two that actually caught me by surprise.
