You’re Next | This home invasion action thriller is bloody good fun!

You're Next

The wealthy Paul and Avery Davison’s 35th wedding anniversary dinner with their four grown-up children and their partners is a brought to a sudden halt when a gang of masked assailants wage an all-out assault on their secluded Missouri estate. But neither the attackers, nor their victims, have counted on tough-as-nails Aussie girl Erin (Sharni Vinson), who has the survival skills needed to fight back…

You're Next

After being screened to great acclaim in Toronto and at SXSW in 2011, director Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s You’re Next was quickly snapped up by Lionsgate, but took a while to get a theatrical release. But it was worth the wait and ended up becoming one of the most talked about horror films of 2013. Now, the brutal horrorfest is heading home on Blu-ray and DVD, and if you haven’t already caught it, then here’s your chance.

You're Next

If you’re expecting another cynical flesh and blood show, think again, because You’re Next is one of the most entertaining and well-crafted home invasion thrillers around, and it’s all down to four factors: a smart script that doesn’t take it self too seriously; well-thought out characters – especially Joe Swanberg’s nasty Drake, who provides much of the film’s comic relief; some heart-racing action, involving sophisticated traps, axes, crossbows and machetes; and Sharni Vinson playing a one-woman Aussie Rambo, who you really don’t want to mess with. A cool cult in the making.

The UK Blu-ray and DVD release from Lionsgate includes No Ordinary Home Invasion: The Making of You’re Next featurette and an audio commentary from Adam Wingard, Simon Barrett, Shari Vinson and Barbara Crampton.

You’re Next also screens on Sky Box Office in the UK from Monday 13 January 2014
