Undoubtedly it is the hit of horror scene that dominated this era in Greek cinemas. To ' You ' re ' Next is not exactly new since it had already been featured in international film festival from 2011, as the Toronto International Film Festival and the Austin Fantastic Fest.
The case revolves around quirky Davison family whose members gathered in remote rural home realizing something like ' reunion '. Together they have brought and their escorts, arrabwniastikoys, mates etc. From the first moments it becomes clear that members are not-so-favorite among them. The first evening we would sit together at the table to eat will accept an unexpected attack by a gang armed with guns the favourite holic crossbow and the axe! While the masked indulge in merciless killing the project, one of the guests at the family reunion she vigorously blows bringing masked in the position of the victim than the perpetrator.
The screenwriter Simon Barrett played and one of the masked killers and specifically him with Tiger Mask.
From the outset, the circumstances of the case suggest a banal character for ' You ' re Next». However, as the film rolls and interesting revelations come on the scene, the film manages to distance himself from the pile of typical juvenile slasher-horror that have flooded the horror scene. The characteristics that make it enjoyable is the plethora of violent and sometimes original killings — some of whom are mini-scenes anthology, the existence of black humor and cynicism and the terrifying twists that justify the attack of the killer. The masked killers show convincingly threatened and I think it's a matter of time anymore to exploit trade with … Crane games, Halloween masks and on when the film penetrated entirely in the collective consciousness of horror together.
The script doesn't avoid cliches and platitudes but next to them and blows an air of freshness that makes us we enjoy the film despite some imperfections. Adequate direction of Adam Wingard (V/H/S, Pop Skull, etc.) helps the film to emerge and gain independence, may evolve and ' cult ' of the future. Of course we would like deeper development for some characters that the peculiar behaviour made them look quite interesting but the film prefers to leaves them in the shallows, using them only as manufacturing materials for the bloodied menu that serves us. We have no masterpiece here nor any groundbreaking horror film that will revolutionize. We have a dynamic and highly enjoyable project, with nuggets of freshness and originality that can satisfy most friends of the scene of horror. Hasten fearlessly in cinema to enjoy it more.

Abundant violence with some original and extremely men of murder. Successful black humor and interesting twists in the plot.
The relatively simple scenario, the existence of some cliche and the insufficient development of certain characters.
