The show, which will premiere on the Epix premium cable network, is based on Joël Dicker's best-selling novel, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, about an author facing a murder indictment after a young girl's buried body is discovered on his property. Dempsey has signed on as the titular character in the Jean-Jacques Annaud (Enemy at the Gates)-directed project, for which production is underway in Montreal, Canada.

Fantasia Review: ‘Better Watch Out’ is Nightmarish Holiday Horror Lacking Emotion

29 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s Christmas and songs of carolers are in the air of a quaint suburban neighborhood populated by houses big enough to list four bedrooms yet safe enough to not need alarms. Perfectly imperfect families live inside them like the pulls-no-punches Deandra (Virginia Madsen) and affably self-deprecating Robert (Patrick Warburton) showing how love can take and sometimes excel with a little argumentatively sarcastic friction. They may drink and swear, but they’d do anything for twelve-going-on-thirteen year old son Luke (Levi Miller)—and he knows it. A sensitive kid with lofty aspirations to show his babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) why he’s a better suitor than her revolving door of inconsiderate brutes, the time to make a move is now since college is a couple months away from separating them forever.

Writer/director Chris Peckover does a wonderful job setting up Better Watch Out‘s wholesome atmosphere like holiday genre-benders of the past. »

Better Watch Out Review [Fantasia 2017]

28 July 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Chris Peckover’s Better Watch Out (formerly Safe Neighborhood) is more a gift-wrapped home invasion tickler than break-in terrorizer à la The Strangers, but that doesn’t translate to a lack of creeps. The innocence of Home Alone meets jingle bell schlock, and while Zack Kahn’s story isn’t wholly unpredictable, what plays out still subverts typical babysitter-in-peril tropes (enough). My only advice? Don’t watch a single trailer, clip, or interview until you’ve experienced Better Watch Out for yourself. Hell, you should probably stop reading my review. Spoilers won’t follow, but Peckover’s strengths all hinge on surprise. No peeking until Christmas morning!

The setup, without divulging twists, is a simple one. Thirteen-year-old Luke (Levi Miller) is in love with his babysitter Ashley (Olivia DeJonge). He’s determined to win over the high school sweetheart while his parents (played by Virginia Madsen and Patrick Warburton) enjoy a night out. »

Fantasia 2017: ‘Better Watch Out’ Review

16 July 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Formerly known as Safe Neighborhood, I first became aware of this as it played at Fantastic Fest in 2016. Now here we are for Fantasia 2017 with distribution from Well Go USA, a new title, and a little Christmas in July spirit for those in attendance!

Tis the season! A safe neighborhood, an average night. Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) heads over to Deandra and Robert’s house (Virginia Madsen and Patrick Warburton, respectively) in order to babysit their lovesick 14 year old, Luke (Levi Miller). Shortly before her arrival, Luke and his friend Garrett (Ed Oxenbould) discuss Luke’s plan to finally win over his teen babysitter. Luke tries moves, tries to impress her, and gets her to sit down to watch a horror film with him. Just when it looks like they might be getting close, strange things begin happening outside.
