You’re Next (2011)

Adam Wingard directs Sharni Vinson, Nicholas Tucci and Wendy Glenn in this home invasion horror movie where a rich family is stalked by masked killers and a very capable final girl emerges amongst them.

I think the slow drip ‘eat the rich’ satire and the long ramp up before any carnage starts puts some people off. When You’re Next builds up a head of steam though it really delivers. OTT kills, iconic menaces, simple tension and a fantastic genre lead in Sharni Vinson. When she starts laying out X-rated Home Alone traps and taking mutherfuckas down with gusto you quickly realise in a parallel universe she could be the unhinged psycho everyone else needs to save themselves from. Very rewatchable.
