Movie Review: Better Watch Out (2016)

Looking for festive horror I came across this title on Sky Movies, “Better Watch Out”.

Ashley is babysitting Luke while his parents go out for a Christmas party. His mum is Virginia Madsen of Candy Man fame and we identified his father as the bloke who is in everything, Patrick Warburton. Anyway, Josh fancies Ashley and thinks he is in with a chance even though his best friend, Garrett makes it clear he thinks she’s out of Luke’s league. However, Luke’s seduction plan goes awry when strange things start happening and a window is smashed. Someone is in the house and Ashley tries to protect Luke. But all is not what it seems as it turns into a night of terror for Ashley.

I don’t want to give the story away but it was entertaining horror that reminded me of a twisted home alone/80’s style horror comedy. Go into it expecting tongue in cheek cheesy horror.

The boys input is that it was a good twist but the main villain needed work.

We both agreed on 7/10. Good twist but don’t expect too much. It was a laugh.

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
