Better Watch Out could revive the home-invasion genre

Better Watch Out is the next offering from Well Go Usa that some are dubbing it as Home Alone meets a horror film. Here’s the official Better Watch Out synopsis:


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.

And twisted is an under statement for the storyline. What begins as a straight up home invasion film trailer turns into a deeply psychotic one that’s just raring to go off the railings.


So, you have sequences where a teenage guy has a gleeful smile plastered over his face after her hits the daylights off a man. There’s another scene where a guy might just end up being hung to death. And proving that this is a festival film, the girl’s tied up in lights in one of the sequences.
