I think it's a fantastic storyline but it may have taken it a step too far to be believable for me.

Better Watch Out is the definition of a horror comedy, with great performances all around.

Better Watch Out is a festive treat all year round. And you'd better watch it.

Better Watch Out is like a puzzle that horror fans get to dissect, which makes it a true joy to watch. Even better, it's a movie that demands you react to it. You'll laugh. You'll yell at characters. You'll cringe.

A reminder that sometimes films can misbehave and there's nothing wrong with that. [Full review in Spanish].

The pretensions of 'Better Watch Out' are modest, but for what it pretends to do it does a great job. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sharp direction, snappy dialogue, clever comedy, tasty looking pizza and a game-changing twist all come together to create a fun, creepy and entertaining holiday horror movie.

Most notably, a merry-minded macabre middle finger to the Yuletide season in the charmingly twisted and creatively corrosive suburban home invasion horror thriller 'Better Watch Out'.

Better Watch Out breaks the mold of the typical holiday slasher and is sure to be on everyone's holiday must-watch list. It takes what audiences love about the holidays and everything they love about horror to create a fun new Christmas movie.

Provides a fun twist on the home invasion sub-genre that should give horror fans a hilariously disturbing viewing experience.

Better Watch Out goes to completely unexpected and(...)gruesome places. The nasty shocks are off-set by treading the always tricky horror/comedy line with wit aplomb, thanks to a cocky, confident script by Kahn and director Chris Peckover.

Better Watch Out is a fresh, snarky, twisted horror that's a perfect addition for the holiday season.

It may be gimmicky and nasty, but it's also an enjoyable freak-out.

Though occasionally unsurprising, it joins Krampus and Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale as a strong alternative to the regular holiday viewing because of the nasty genre thrills it delivers whilst being wickedly funny.

In Better Watch Out, [director Chris] Peckover has succeeded in creating a truly chilling horror which, I hope, will generate plenty of talk this Christmas.

If Better Watch Out was a Yuletide beverage, it'd be spiked eggnog: you think you know what you're getting, but after a couple of sips it turns out to be something very different.

... Better Watch Out is a delightfully nasty seasonal inversion, replete with carollers, decorations, themed jumpers and booze.

An interesting take on the home invasion model it's well acted, tongue in cheek, often funny and although not terrifying provides a few jumps and more than the average number of surprises.
