One of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, YOU'RE NEXT reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped... until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.

The boogety-boogeties in "You're Next" are terrifyingly metaphored in their eyeless animal masks, but not supernatural. They have motive. They have means. They are formidable without being invincible.
The logic of this movie "plays fair."
The protagonists of "You're Next" are neither ineffectual trip-at-the-last-minute, throw-perfectly-good-gun-at-villian-who-merely-drops-to-a-knee-after-being-shot-in-the-shoulder (I'm looking at YOU, Jennifer Lopez in "The Boy Next Door"), nor are they John McClain.
Again, "You're Next" respects the viewer and plays fair.
My only ding is a couple of instances of "Scooby-Do"ing: "I'm going in this part of the scary house by myself. You go to that part of the scary house by yourself and we'll meet back here in a few minutes." Yeah. You do that, Copernicus. Say hello to Darwin for me.
The gore is doled out judiciously and for-effect only. Some of the trope-y characters you want to hate are not missed when they meet their maker. Some of the trope-y characters you want to hate turn out to have more dimensions than you gave the writers credit for.
I'm not sure how I missed this movie for so long. I dig it. I recommend it.
But it's still awesome. Not as good as The Guest, more fun but less effective than A Horrible Way to Die, and much better than V/H/S. The director didn't do either of the kickass short films or even the best part of the first one(though brought a sense of humor and much needed joyful apathy to the ABCS of Death with the letter Q.)
Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett aren't quite up there with Ben Wheatley or Jim Mickle, but they're close.
1. Jump factor
2. Backstory/motivating factor
3. A meaningful ending
The best jump factor portion of the movie was in the beginning, which is a logical format, and portrayed the chaos that was breaking loose in the house. Upon meeting the family, it is easy to tell that there are a few stereotypical horror movie characters, but the movie doesn't focus much time on developing those characters, instead ramping up the action and developing the more important characters.
Throughout the movie, we discover that the murders aren't just a random, blood-thirsty cult on a killing spree, but have motivating factors other than bloodshed and death (which I won't tell; no spoilers here!).
The ending of the movie was explosive as reality barges its way into the nightmarish, bloody mess. It left me grasping for that last piece of sanity in the situation, and didn't disappoint me. Nobody gets away clean, not even my wallet (bad pun, sorry). I bought this movie and gleefully added it to my collection.
