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.
MPAA Rating: Rated R - for disturbing violent content, language throughout, crude sexual references, drug and alcohol use - all involving teens.
Subtitles: English SDH
Frightful and delightful. --The Hollywood Reporter
...a smart, surprising, and viciously entertaining holiday thriller. --Film School Rejects
To describe Better Watch Out in movie terms would be to brand it a cross between Home Alone, Black Christmas and When a Stranger Calls. --Cinapse

And then it turns into weird r*pey slasher flick with creepy children sexually assaulting their babysitter.
It’s shot well and looks high budget, so those are pros.
But if you think it will be funny at all, it’s not. Would recommend The Babysitter over this if you are looking for comedy and gore. Would recommend Hitchcock’s Frenzy if you are looking for r*pe and violence. Can’t recommend this at all as I wasn’t even able to finish watching it.
started off fun and lighthearted,...
then twisted into a bit of teen tension,...
then spins around another twist into diabolical terror !!!
the payoff at the unfolding of the plot 360 twist,...is so rewarding at the end !!!
watched with my SHUDDER subscription,...theghoststaroriginal highly recommends !!!
But this one was a bad idea to release. The reason I say this is because it seems specifically designed to inspire young men to use violence to control women. Whoever made just might be responsible for the birth of this generation's set of Ted Bundy's.
It features a charismatic attractive young boy who molests and then tortures a woman for hours. For someone who has not yet developed a firm sense of right and wrong, they could be both impressed and inspired by him.
A young mind could empathize with the boy's trauma of unrequited love and be excited by the scenario we are presented with when he takes control over her. In fact, it was thought that unrequited love was also one of the things that inspired Ted Bundy's obsession with raping and killing women. For those who don't know, Ted was a serial killer who always sought women who looked similar to the woman who jilted him. And he murdered and raped dozens and possibly hundreds of them. Similar to the kid in the movie, Ted did it in such a cocky way, often in broad daylight, often with alcohol involved. He would first manipulate women, then physically constrain them. And then he would have his way with them and kill them. He once said that it was the feeling of power which is why he did it.
And oh you can see how excited this young boy is to discover this power over a woman. This movie does a wonderful job of exposing young minds to this idea of power. And what a perfect way to expose them: With such a young and popular cast. It glorifies this young boy's actions as he receives no real consequences for them.
This sociopathic kid is portrayed as a decent person. He after all was the one who saved the spider when the girl wanted to kill it. He said "the spider didn't do anything to hurt us." But apparently the young woman deserved it. She's the evil one who wants to kill innocent animals, and date jerks. She deserved what she got, right? Simply not a good message.
We should have some sense of responsibility when it comes to the media we create. And put some thought into how it may affect our society.
It was poor judgment on the creators' parts to release this. And poor judgment on Amazon's part to have this in their collection.
Jawbreaker (1999) is a Killer Comedy.
Jennifer's Body (2009) is a Killer Comedy.
Even Scream (1996), to a degree, is a Killer Comedy.
This is home invasion/tormented-by-captor Thriller. It's about as much of a Comedy as Funny Games (2007). I guess whoever labeled it thought the twists were absurd, therefore comedy. It's a decent Thriller, and not boring at all, but I really wasn't in the mood for this genre.
Maybe it tried for humor, but I just didn't feel the jokes were pulled off? Was the Home Alone paint can supposed to be one? Was the young age of the perpetrators the funny part? Was the post-violence music and dancing a reference to American Psycho? Is that the dark humor I'm supposed to get here? The mother/father banter at the start was pretty good. Past that, the overall tone is pretty dark and malicious. 3 stars because it is a well-made movie, but not my kind of movie.

Ashley sollte zum wiederholten Male auf den zwölfjährigen Luke aufpassen.
Bisher war alles gut,oder die Frage ist er wirklich ein ganz normaler kleiner Junge?
Mehr möchte ich dazu nicht schreiben,unbedingt kaufen und sich selbst ein Bild machen.
Der Film ist wirklich gut gelungen,habe ich so noch nie gesehen.
Leider war ganz zu Beginn des Filmes eine Störung daher die vier Sterne
Well made and sporting a good cast, the story is somewhat original and is played initially with a healthy dose of comedy which changes to more standard-style horror as things progress. I guess you need to approach the film expecting to laugh, and making yourself see the humour in some of the darker scenes - the very young age of one of the lead characters leads to some unsavoury behaviour, which at a number of points left me feeling quite uncomfortable. It is however well-paced and fair entertainment value.
On Blu-ray, the video presentation is clear and has a good colour palette. The audio is lossless dts-HD MA 5.1 which suffices but doesn't do anything special.
Wurde sehr oft an Kevin allein zu Haus erinnert. ;)
Und mit dem Gedanken an Kevin allein zu Haus im Hinterkopf dachte ich mir desöfteren - man ist der brutal.
Aber guter Film - ob ich ihn mir noch ein zweites mal ansehen werde bleibt ungewiss.
