Movie Info

BETTER WATCH OUT (formerly known as SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD) stars Olivia DeJonge (THE VISIT) as a babysitter who, one snowy night on a quiet suburban street, must defend her twelve-year-old charge (Levi Miller, PAN) from intruders... but quickly learns that this is one extraordinary home invasion that demands an equally extraordinary response. Co-starring Virginia Madsen, Patrick Warburton, Ed Oxenbould (THE VISIT), Aleks Mikic and Dacre Montgomery (POWER RANGERS), BETTER WATCH OUT will surprise and delight anyone who not only loves a good holiday movie, but also wishes HOME ALONE had a lot more blood in it.

Seems destined to become one of those Yuletide perennials for people who like their holiday-themed entertainment as perversely un-wholesome as possible.

Best described as Home Alone meets Michael Haneke's Funny Games, the sadistic horror comedy Safe Neighborhood is the kind of film that's tough to categorize but easy to enjoy.

You might think you're in for an icky, misogynist torture porn, and momentarily wish to leave the theater. (I did.) But stick it out, because the film will continue to defy your expectations.

[Miller] is, in key moments, mesmerising to watch.

Safe Neighborhood is a rarity that pairs immense entertainment with dark, vicious thrills.

The reason why I'm nervous to talk too much about it is because one of the movie's biggest strengths is having the audience constantly wondering where the line is drawn, and wondering what each character is capable of.
