Storyline

A family reunion turns into a full-on massacre when a gang of masked killers invade a sprawling country mansion on a ruthless mission of murder. Paul (Rob Moran) and Aubrey Davison (Barbara Crampton) are about to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and they've invited their grown-up children out to the country to share in the revelry. The first to arrive are Crispian (A.J. Bowen) and his new girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson). It isn't long before the rest of the family has filed in as well, and the party gets under way. Later, at the dinner table, old sibling rivalries begin to resurface and parental preferences quickly become apparent. Just as tensions begin to flare up, however, a crossbow arrow blasts through the glass window and panic sets in. The family is under attack. But who are the savage invaders donning eerie farm-animal masks, and what is their motive behind slaughtering everyone in the house? No one is safe as the blood starts to flow, but Erin is determined to see the ...

What the hell is mumblegore?!?
26 December 2013 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Not even 10 years ago, all horror movie critics were full of praise for the so-called "splat-pack"; a bunch of young and talented new arrival directors in the horror genre. Right now in 2013, we don't hear much anymore about most of this unofficial pack (including Neil Marshall, Greg McLean, Darren Lynn Bousman and others), but they seem to have been replaced with a new army of horror prodigies. Lately, all we hear about are Ti West, Adam Wingard, Joe Swanberg and Simon Barrett. Moreover they seem to be close friends, appear as actors in each other's movies and the type of films they make even received its very own subgenre name. Mumblegore, whatever the hell the characteristics may be. Do they really deserve this honor? Not quite. Ti West made a few worthwhile movies ("The Roost", "House of the Devil"), but their previous group project "V/H/S" was lamentable and this effort – released with a delay of nearly two years – is only just slightly above average.

"You're Next" opens very promising and traditional, with a mixture of good old 80's slasher setting and a post-2000 brutal home invasion concept. The wealthy and loving Davison parents host their four children and their partners at their remote countryside mansion to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. The family dinner unfolds as normal, quarreling siblings included, but the party gets rudely interrupted when three masked and maniacal perpetrators attack the house. The sudden attack as well as the first four or five killings are extremely tense and provide the film with a uniquely mortifying atmosphere. Wingard manages to hold the suspense for a strong half hour, but then awkwardly reveals all the main plot twists and compensates the suspense with far-fetched character developments and grotesque black humor. The film remains somewhat enjoyable, thanks to the apt performance of lead actress (and kick-ass lady) Sharni Vinson and inventive (gruesome) death traps. What I appreciated most about this film was that they cast the wondrous Barbara Crampton as the mother. The horror diva of "Re-Animator" and "From Beyond" is well past 50 years of age, but she still looks fabulous!
