The world could always use more Christmas horror.
Deadline reports that director Chris Peckover’s Safe Neighborhood has not only been acquired by Well Go USA, but it’s also been rechristened Better Watch Out. Well Go nabbed all North American rights to the film, and they’re planning a theatrical and digital release for October 6.
Trace reviewed the film, calling it “a hilariously bonkers home invasion tale.”
Set in a quiet American suburb on a snowy evening on the lead up to Christmas, Ashley (Olivia DeJonge), the regular babysitter for Deandra (Virginia Madsen) and Robert Lerner (Patrick Warburton), has to defend their twelve-year-old son (Levi Miller) from strangers breaking into the house – only to discover that this is far from a normal home invasion.
The cast also includes Ed Oxenbould (The Visit), Aleks Mikic and Dacre Montgomery.
Peckover wrote the script with Zack Kahn.
