"YOU'RE NEXT" (2013) (Sharni Vinson, Nicholas Tucci) (R)
Horror/Suspense: A family get-together at a remote vacation home turns into a nightmare when masked men suddenly attack them.
Crispian Davison (AJ BOWEN) and his new girlfriend, Erin (SHARNI VINSON), have arrived at the remote vacation home of his parents, Paul (ROB MORAN) and Aubrey (BARBARA CRAMPTON), to celebrate their 35th anniversary. They're soon followed by Crispian's brothers, Drake (JOE SWANBERG) -- who's married to Kelly (SARAH MYERS) -- and Felix (NICHOLAS TUCCI) -- who's arrived with his girlfriend Zee (WENDY GLENN) -- and their sister, Aimee (AMY SEIMETZ) and her boyfriend Tariq (TI WEST).
It's been a long time since the entire family has been together and it doesn't take long for Crispian and Drake to squabble during dinner. It's during that, however, that Tariq notices something outside, goes to look out the window, and is hit in the head with a crossbow arrow.
Everyone else takes cover, but Drake ends up shot in the shoulder with the same. The rest of the family, unaware that the couple in the house down the road was previously slain, then realize there's not just one killer after them, but multiple ones, including one who's already inside the house.
From that point on, they do what they can to survive, all while Erin somewhat takes charge due to her upbringing that's prepared her for something similar to this.
WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into horror films that play on the slasher and/or home invasion sub-genres, they very well might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
