I think it was better than "Straw Dogs," but it does depend on one buying into the plot, including how a particular character is actually the best person to be put into such a situation. That said, it's like a mashup "The Strangers" and "Straw Dogs."

For those who enjoyed "Hush", "The Guest", or "It Follows".

If You're Next, I'd run and get "Straw Dogs" instead. You'd be entertained much more.

Surprisingly decent home invasion/slasher flick with several clever twists. Loved the Australian chick.

I dunno whether to laugh or break my tv at the ending of this film. I wasn't frightened by the imagery, but I did cringe a few times (don't run out the front door or have sex on your mother's dead corpse). If I had watched it at night it may have been a little scary. The guys in the masks are a little menacing and I like the main girl, she's Australian and badass, but like I said, the ending is ironic and will mess with your emotions.

fans of horror movies should enjoy.
I couldn't help but laugh at the use of a blender in 1 scene

Indie horror film that shouldn't be taken too seriously, but will appeal to anyone who liked "House of the Devil," "Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil," and "Baghead." Two indie directors, Ti West and Joe Swanberg, have roles. For those who critique the plot or plausibility, it's meant to be a black comedy that embrace the clichés of the genre. It's no "Cabin in the Woods," but what is?

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.
