What are you going to talk about next?
In “You Are Next”, the wealthy Davidsons meet in their summer house and participate in a small family gathering. Crispin, the middle son, took his new girlfriend home to meet with his family and siblings.
During the usual quarrel between introducing other important people and siblings, the house was besieged. Isolated from civilization in a country house during the off-season, the Davidsons must fight against masked invaders who want to kill their families. But who is doing this, why did they choose Davidson. How do they know their family will be here?
The film premiered in 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival’s fan favorite genre show Midnight Madness, and received widespread acclaim from critics. However, it did not officially come out in the United States until 2013, and since then it has gathered a small group of enthusiastic followers.
Extreme family plot
In the first half hour, “You Are Next” plunges you into a false sense of security through a fascinating family comedy. It will never let you forget that you are watching a horror movie, but it also sets up a very simple spiral ball room work to build.
The comedy of Youre Next has a clever and cynical tendency. The passive aggressive quarrel of the Davidson family feels just right in a familiar independent film way.
Director Adam Wingard started as a member of the mumblecore movement. Mumblecore is an independent subtype that focuses on dialogue and interpersonal relationships. Movies like Humpday, Drinking Buddies, and Jeff Who Lives at Home use fairly simple, usually unremarkable premises that make the movies fascinating by focusing on the characters and finding depth in their relationships and interactions.

This is a very suitable method for horror movies, so that there are sub-types of horror movies. Mumblegore (understand?) movies include Baghead, V/H/S, The House of the Devil, Creep, The Invitation and Youre Next.
You’re Next is a little bit of mumblecore, a little bit of strangers, and a little bit of home headed.
The attention to characters and dialogue gives this film an excellent average continuity. No one in the Davidson family is completely likable. Some of them are downright scary. But they are the type we have seen in movies before, well, the stakes are lower.
It also helps to enhance the comedy effect and runs through the entire movie. The eldest brother Drake insisted that he was the fastest runner in the family, even if he tried to remove an arrow from his shoulder, it was a funny feeling. A sequence similar to Home Alone will also lead to some dark and interesting carnage, accompanied by stumbles and angry collapses, which suddenly feels too real and absurd.
You are the next influential modern classic
You are the next important entry that also feels like horror classics and home invasion movies. From “We” to “Ready or Not Quiet” to “The Great Purge”, you can see the echo of “You are the next”.
The film perfectly balances the ordinary family reality and the sudden outbreak of violence, adjusting its tone to have the greatest impact. It presents an incredibly real and straightforward nightmare scene.

Of course, this is not unprecedented in 2011, and it has been the horrible norm for decades. Think of night of the living dead, fun games and strangers. But you are the next model that perfectly blends into the fashionable irony and detachment of the 2010s while still feeling new and original.
It also helped Wingard start a more mainstream career.You are the next director and will continue to make a low-key criminal activity guest In 2014, it was followed by Blair the Witch, Death Note, and the highly successful Godzilla VS King Kong Just earlier this year. He is also preparing to direct the sequel to “Face/Off” and a new movie based on the comic book “Hardcore” by ThunderCats and Robert Kirkman. The explosive growth of large-budget franchise film production can be traced back to you being the next.
