Better Watch Out
Directed by Chris Peckover
This holiday season, you may be home, but you’re not alone... In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Amazingly fun and disturbing in equal amounts, this little thriller had some great twists. I'll never be able to look at the male lead in the same way again. I literally let out a cheer out the next to last scene (a little segment after the credits start sets up a possible sequel that I would love to see).
It is truly astonishing the garbage that studios churn out and try to pass off as "enjoyable" entertainment. What starts off as a decent if somewhat predictable retread of the familiar "home invasion" genre takes a sharp left turn into utter nonsense. Paper thin characters (not to mention a poorly cast villain) run around doing nothing for the majority of the run time. Just when you think the ending is about to make up for the lackluster drudgery of a plot, once again there is a dramatic shift and then credits start to roll. A real snooze.
I loved it, I loved the twist and the route the movie took.
Pretty cool concept. Not where I saw it going
The kid was starting to get me pissed, but the ending was satisfying. Not a bad movie.
