In a snowy American suburb in the leadup to Christmas, teenager Ashley is hired by the parents of twelve-year-old Luke to babysit while they go out for the night.  Luke’s desperate to prove himself boyfriend material, though his plans to win over Ashley are suddenly put on hold when they find themselves under attack from a home invasion.

A wholly unpredictable and original take on a simple concept, quite rightly described as a horror version of Home Alone, Better Watch Out is a crowd-pleasing and gory Christmas horror-comedy that’s already received a rapturous response from festival audiences all over the world.
