    More often than not, this felt like it was trying to be two different movies, but the cinematography was awesome, Samara Weaving was flat out tremendous and the finale was gonzo bonkers and satisfying at the same time. Overall, I enjoyed it.

    The "In-Laws" line was funny. I kind of guessed the actual twist midway though: [
    ]

    After The Babysitter and Ready Or Not I hope Samara Weaving gets a bigger movie at some point. She rocks.

    I still haven't seen The Babysitter. I'll make it a priority this horror season.

    Agreed. The writers tried to add some heavy themes to what was already essentially a deeply satisfying dark comedy and it doesn't always work, mostly because they're included bluntly in the dialogue. It's still a fun movie and, like you say, it looks really great!

    It's a fun movie. I saw that, Ready or Not and Mayhem (all with her) for my Horrorfest 2019 viewing. All three highly entertaining movies.

    Opens with some promise, then dramatically decreases in quality of both creative set-pieces and its horror premise, and by the end I wish I've been rewatching You're Next instead. Only keepers are Samara Weaving (who near the end releases surely one of the great horror screams ever) and "Brown-haired niece. You continue to exist." 5/10
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Sure You're Next is better. It's better than many things.

    One of my favorite moments was her tearing the dress and putting on reasonable shoes.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    That part made me laugh in 2019. Now in 2020 I would probably find it more hilarious than I did last year.
