Another home invasion thriller set during the holidays is heading our way, and if you’re a fan of that sort of thing, you’ll want to keep your eyes open for Better Watch Out, which was just acquired by Well Go USA for North America.
Per THR, Better Watch Out is set for a domestic theatrical and digital release on October 6th.
The film, previously titled Safe Neighborhood, hails from director Chris Peckover, who co-wrote it with Zack Kahn from a story by Kahn. Producers are Thornquest and Sidonie Abbene of Storm Vision Entertainment and Hambel and Paul Jensen of Best Medicine Productions.
Starring Olivia DeJonge (The Visit), the movie follows a babysitter that must defend her 12-year-old ward, played by Pan‘s Levi Miller, from intruders that have planned an extraordinary home invasion. Virginia Madsen and Patrick Warburton also star, along with Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic, and Dacre Montgomery of “Stranger Things.”
Set in a quiet American suburb on a snowy evening on the lead up to Christmas, Ashley (DeJonge), the regular babysitter for Deandra (Madsen) and Robert Lerner (Warburton), has to defend their twelve-year-old son (Miller) from strangers breaking into the house – only to discover that this is far from a normal home invasion.

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
- One-Eye I kind of dig how Osment is just like "Yeah, I'm fat and have a big, bushy beard. And that's how I'm gonna stay now..."
