It’s a strange thing, the way horror and comedy go together. You’d think that the two genres would have nothing in common. And yet, for some reason, they do. And when done well, there’s few things more entertaining.
You’re Next fits squarely in the horror-comedy camp. It’s bloody; it’s irreverent; it’s filled with ridiculous caricatures. It also has one of the best female heroines I have ever seen. She is kick-ass in every way.
Is it scary? Not really. There are some great jump scares, and some shocking kills. But it is funny, in a dark and disturbing way. The last five minutes are worth the price of admission.
