    It's so deliciously twisted, it will make you walk out of the theater feeling like you just endured a grueling, giddy workout.

    You're Next streamlines the gory stuff for something truly shocking: good characters. Not deep, mind you. But characters who are crayoned in bright enough that they're interesting even while alive.
