Reviews for this film from our members:
Mario Alegre @ Primera Hora [Spanish]
Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
Excerpt: If these kind of films are what modern horror fans want, so be it, but when the filmmaking is this lazy and the characters are so uninteresting that their survival isn’t of much concern, what’s the incentive for watching?
Anton Bitel @ movieScopemag.com
Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Excerpt: There comes a point where the difference between bad-on-purpose and just-plain-bad is wholly academic.
Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast
Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
Excerpt: a smartly devised horror movie masquerading as a really dumb one
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: a bit of a one trick pony – once the ‘surprise’ is revealed, it mostly just goes through the motions.
Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
Excerpt: …ruthlessly inventive…
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: This is smart, frightening, and funny material that’s an invigorating kick in the genre’s ass.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: A mediocre, late-summer slasher, filled with pointless carnage

Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: If you want to satiate your bloodlust, regardless of plot, script, sense, character development or standards, then You’re Next should fit the bill nicely.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: Oh, it’s horrific, all right: wooden performances and stilted exposition, punctuated by bouts of random bloody sadism.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: Slaughter-Home Alone: “You’re Next” a wickedly entertaining devil that refreshes horror genre
Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
Piers Marchant @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
Excerpt: “You’re Next” isn’t genre bending, it’s genre done very, very well, and one of the most entertaining movies of the year.
Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
Excerpt: My review of You’re Next, a home invasion horror-thriller from director Adam Wingard. Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
Frank Ochieng @ SFcrowsnest
Excerpt: Saturated with snappy dialogue, twisty plotting and wicked-minded wit, the sacrificial lambs in ‘You’re Next’ that display murderous masked menaces and their pristine prey are a welcomed relief to the corrosive crop of dice-and-slice cinema that currently bombard the indie horror scene.
R. Kurt Osenlund @ Slant Magazine
Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
Excerpt: You’re Next is just fine, if maybe lacking in suspense. Wingard generates good tension in individual moments, but he fails to create a consistent tone of dread…
