'You're Next'
(Sharni Vinson, A.J. Bowen, Wendy Glenn, Joe Swanberg, Barbara Crampton, et al / R / 134 mins)

Overview: 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.

Verdict: So much for my expectations. Maybe I'm spoiled after watching The Conjuring. It served up great thrills and chills without relying on nudity, sex, drugs, alcohol, blood, gore, bodycount, shaky camera, and CGI.

It didn't have any "Why would you go off alone?" or "Let's play loud music to mask a kill from the next victim" moments to further the plot. It didn't have unlikeable characters or huge plot holes. You're Next has all of these tired clichés and lazy traits except for CGI. You're Next is very predictable.

If you've seen the previews, several key scenes are revealed which lessen the impact of the rest of the movie. There are a few chuckles amongst the carnage. The best thing about You're Next is the exceptionally strong protagonist.

If you like scary movies you'll probably be entertained by You're Next. I found myself completely checked out by the end of the movie.
