A young woman grieving the loss of her mother, a famous scream queen from the 1980s, finds herself pulled into the world of her mom's most famous movie. Reunited, the women must fight off the film's maniacal killer.
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
A twist on the slasher genre, following two death-obsessed teenage girls who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small mid-western town into a frenzy, and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.
A mother of two who inherits a house is confronted with murderous intruders on the first night in their new home and fights for her daughters' lives. Sixteen years later when the daughters reunite at the house, things get really strange.
When you think the suburbs, you think safety, but this holiday night the suburbs are anything but safe. Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) thought this babysitting job was going to be an easy night, but the night takes a turn when dangerous intruders break in and terrorize her and the twelve-year-old boy, Luke (Levi Miller), she's caring for. Ashley defends her charge to the best of her ability only to discover this is no normal home invasion.
A lot of references to Home Alone throughout the movie. Christmas carols, spiders and paint cans being thrown. See more »

Yet another waste of space posing as a horror/comedy/film!
Better watch Out! is actually the warning to anyone unfortunate enough to place this pathetic excuse for a film into their DVD/Blu-Ray player (True someone has to in this case myself. lol).
From the start this film shows that the writer and director have seen a series of films including Black cat, Home Alone, When a Stranger calls and of course Scream. Unfortunately they learnt nothing from these experiences.
This leads the film into as others have mentioned the juvenile realm of the many angst ridden teenagers who have had a crush on their babysitter and have an overwhelming need to try and prove themselves to the world. You have the usual drug references seemingly necessary to films in this day and age to satisfy a certain strata of society. The female heroine is along with the rest of the cast poorly fleshed out while still retaining the usual hackneyed characteristics of a babysitter based film.
There are no real scares, the plot is apparent from the get go and the cast have been drawn from the lowest end of the drama school dropout list. I have read some reviews that praise the cast and I can only say personally that they were obviously watching a different film with a different cast.
It is a shame that these types of film are sold at prices ranging up to £10 a shot as the buyer should be compensated. If any film deserved to be in the sold free with a can of drink category this is one.
My advise if to walk quickly away from this title and invest in something from the 70s or early 80s when babysitters were terrorised by a host of strangers from within and without the home!
