YOU’RE NEXT: THE REVIEW AND BLU RAY GIVEAWAY

YOU’RE NEXT is a 2011 horror film which was given the festival treatment and then basically shelved until 2013 when it got cinematic release, and a good reputation as a decent horror. I watched it last week and thoroughly enjoyed it, it had a completely new take on the genre and one that I learned a valuable lesson from, never fuck with an Aussie outback chick who has had survival training 🙂 YOU’RE NEXT is out now on DVD and Blu Ray and thanks to the amazingly generous people at ICON HOME ENTERTAINMENT we have 3X copies to giveaway on Blu Ray. Deets for how to enter follow the review :).

YOU’RE NEXT  is more than your basic home invasion film, it turns the hunted into the hunter in a twist that elevates it above the other home invasion horror films. It starts with a large family reunion at the family mansion, in the country, and all the family bring their relative partners. A group of weird freaks then turn up with the intention of slaughtering all the family. And boy is their some sensational slaughter going on. But they never thought of the slightly crazy Aussie girlfriend of one of the brothers, brought up in the outback in a survivalist camp, something no one else would ever have imagined. If the bad guys wanted to slaughter the family they had a much better slaughterer to contend with.

Sharni Vinson plays the Australian girl really well, she is very ballsy and sets traps and everything you can imagine in an attempt to keep everyone safe. Let me just say – you will never look at your blender the same again 🙂 Think the ultimate winner of SURVIVOR – DEATH ISLAND 🙂

The family is beyond dysfunctional, and while I hated pretty much all of them and never cared who lived or died it was the dysfunctional family that did bring us some different characters and while it took a good twenty or so minutes of slow pace to introduce them all once we meet them all and why they all pretty much suck so much the film takes a slight Hitchockian turn as you realise one of them is probably the killer, or the organiser of the animal masked freaks.

And seriously what is it about masks that are so creepy, it is like clowns, simply don an animal mask and you look way more threatening than a non masked murderer.

If you like your gore, or your home invasion film, or generally just like seeing people killed in a horror film then this is all for you! It is out now on DVD and Blu Ray, it is much better than a lot of recent horror. Rent it now or if you are lucky, enter below and you could win your very own copy.
