Money can mean different things to different people. Some people find it as a way to enjoy life, going out for every meal, traveling to far away exotic places and sharing with their loved ones to make sure they are all take care of. Other people can find it as a burden, always being asked for loans or handouts from people they know or don’t know. Whichever way people chose to view their personal holdings is their own business and no one should ever tell them what to do with it, especially family.
Paul and Aubrey Davidson are getting ready for their anniversary in their vacation home, away from the city. Inviting all of their children to attend, the couple is very happy with their standings in life and being retired is the greatest thing that could have ever happened for them. Saving their money and spending it wisely has worked out well for the happy couple and they are more than happy with just being together all the time.
Chrispian Davidson and girlfriend Erin are making their trip up to the house to help celebrate with the rest of the siblings, but Erin seems to be very hung up with the fact the her boyfriend’s parents are very well off. She had never known anybody with money before and hopes that they will accept her into the little circle. Chrispian is not too worried about it, trying to put Erin at bay by saying that they are just normal people, but Erin is trying her hardest not to give off a bad impression. The other brothers and lone sister make it to the house as well and they pick right up where they left off last time they all saw each other…fighting.
With the family all together and some possible new additions at the table, something seems to be a little off in the evening. There seems to be someone lurking in the bushes outside of the dining room and when the daughter’s boyfriend goes to investigate, he is met with an arrow in the head. Dinner is over and the group is looking for safety and trying to figure out who and what they are up against. Without having any real weapons of their own, Erin takes charge and starts arming the family members with anything she can find, including knives and a meat tenderizer. Not knowing who they are up against and the exterior of the house having booby traps set up, the family is trapped inside and has to wait to find out who is hunting them, head on.
You’re Next is a terror movie that focuses around money and power. Following the Davidson family as they battle for their lives facing unknown attackers wearing animal masks. With everyone on edge, Erin takes control and allows her past to come into play as she grew up on a survivalist’s camp in Australia. Taking care of her boyfriend, along with his family proves to be a task for Erin, but she is capable of so much more. Finding out what is really happening is much worse than she expected as she does not know who to trust anymore and is faced with the ultimate decision.
A fantastic ‘Who Done It’ film with a terror twist. Not knowing who you can trust in a new environment can be scary enough, but having to battle an external threat as well will keep you on your toes. It is just great being able to see one person take control of the situation as everyone else is running around with their head cut off. With great build ups and some outrageous kills that you will need to see more than once, it is an enjoyable ride. When money is mentioned later on in the film, most everything seems to come together, with the exception of who is really pulling all of the strings. Stay Scared.
