Paul and Aubrey Davison are celebrating 35 years of marriage and all four of their children, despite severe sibling rivalry, are attending with their respective significant others. At the first night’s dinner familial tensions don’t take long to rise, but it’s the mysterious stranger lurking outside with a crossbow who really sets things off in Adam Wingard’s terrific horror thriller. The question of who’s next, implied by the chilling title, deepens further when one of the Davison guests proves surprisingly resourceful at combatting the various villains (who wear creepy animal masks). With a cast lifted from a who’s who of current indie filmmaking, including Joe Swanberg as Drake and Ti West as Aimee’s boyfriend Tariq; a thread of wicked black humor skewering the nouveau riche and a knowing sense of where the camera should be to provide optimal scares, You’re Next takes the notion of home invasion to the next level.
