My Thoughts On 'Better Watch Out'

Better Watch Out' is a home invasion horror comedy (kind of) that takes place during the holiday season - the story centers around 12 year old Luke's parents going away for the evening, leaving him in the care of his very hot babysitter Ashley.. When intruders break in, it's up to Ashley to protect Luke.. But this is not a normal home invasion.

I went in to Better Watch Out' without knowing much about the plot (I recommend you do the same), Must say I was pleasantly surprised.. Levi Miller (Pan) and Olivia DeJonge (The Visit) both give strong performances as Luke and Ashley.

Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement, Seinfeld) and Virginia Madsen (The Haunting in Connecticut, Candyman) plays Luke's mother and father.. They were both pretty funny, wish we seen more of them in the film.

This is one of those films that may turn off some viewers, I'm not going to go into why because that would be spoiler territory. But if you are up for something a little different and not a typical run of the mill home invasion flick, you might just enjoy this one.

Rating: 7/10
