Sam Clafin (“The Hunger Games”) and Patrick Warburton (“Mr Peabody & Sherman”) have joined the voice cast of big-budget indie animation “The Red Shoes & The Severn Dwarfs.” The film is a modern retelling of the Snow White story and sees seven vain and arrogant princes trapped in the bodies of the ugly dwarves.

Better Watch Out

Stars: Virginia Madsen, Patrick Warburton, Olivia DeJonge, Dacre Montgomery, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic | Written by Zack Kahn, Chris Peckover | Directed by Chris Peckover

On a quiet suburban street tucked within a ‘safe neighbourhood’, Ashley has turned up to babysit 12-year-old Luke for the evening while his parents are out for a Christmas party night. Ashley is Luke’s favourite babysitter and he’s looking forward to spending time with her again. Suddenly a brick crashes through the window reading ‘U Leave, U Die’ and they hear someone sneaking around the house upstairs…

Where to begin with Better Watch Out? A film that starts as your typical, cliched seasonal slasher: two teens trapped in a house by a madman outside, who eventually breaks in to terrorise his victims. If the film had stuck with that story it would have been, judging by what we saw, an

Better Watch Out Red Band Trailer Promises One Killer Christmas
Well Go USA has released a new age-restricted red band trailer and an all-ages green band trailer for the upcoming Better Watch Out, which puts a sadistic spin on the 1990s classic Home Alone. While this is certainly not a remake of Home Alone, this Christmas thriller has been described by critics as "Home Alone meets The Strangers," and there's even a Home Alone reference in the trailer, where Ed Oxenbould's Garrett mentions that Levi Miller's Luke is "Home Aloning" Ricky (Aleks Mikic), tossing a weighted paint can tied to a rope, that connects with Jeremy's face. If that wasn't enough, we also have a new poster as well.

The red band trailer is age-restrictive, and shouldn't be watched by any one under the age of 18, featuring no shortage of adult language and blood. If naughty language isn't your thing, then we also have the green band trailer from Well Go USA YouTube,

Deck the Halls with a Red Band Trailer for Horror 'Better Watch Out'

"Don't worry, I'll protect you." Well Go USA has released an official red band trailer for Chris Peckover's Better Watch Out, a holiday horror movie about a scary home invasion one snowy night. Ever since Mike Dougherty's Krampus a few years ago, I've been hoping we might see some other holiday horror movies that aren't too cheesy. This one looks fun and very freaky, with hopefully some good twists involving the two kids fighting back. It seems to start out pretty conventional, but then gets gnarly in the second half of this trailer, definitely earning that "Home Alone meets The Strangers" quote. The cast includes Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Patrick Warburton, Virginia Madsen, and Dacre Montgomery. Have fun. Here's the official red band trailer (+ poster) for Chris Peckover's Better Watch Out, from YouTube: When you think the suburbs, you think safety, but this holiday night

The Tick TV Review – Amazon Revisits The Kookiest Hero Around

Amazon‘s reboot of The Tick is a timely entry into the world of superhero screen takeover, but a bag of mixed emotions for those of us old enough to remember the short-lived, 2001 version starring Patrick Warburton, who was so perfect as the titular hero that it made you imagine he never had any other career goal.

Peter Serafinowicz manages a strong turn in the role, and it’s one that seems nearly impossible to pull off, but it’s hard to avoid a sense of nostalgic longing.

The Tick is a purposely goofball endeavor that reminds of live-actioning Scooby Doo (but, you know, if there were a good version of that). The pilot may seem rough to some audiences, but there is a lot to establish and it manages to get things out while delivering some laughs. The show really doesn’t start until the second episode, when we

Horror Channel FrightFest Review – Better Watch Out (2017)

Better Watch Out, 2017

Directed by Chris Peckover

Starring Levi Miller, Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic, Darcre Montgomery, Patrick Warbuton, Virginia Madsen

Synopsis:

On a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion.

You remember that scene in Home Alone where Kevin throws a paint can over the balcony and it smashes Harry and Marv in the face? You know how that has become somewhat of a conversation among film fans as to whether or not it would kill the Wet Bandits rather than knock them down the stairs comically? Well, Better Watch Out begins with that conversation and goes from there. It’s Hardcore Home Alone. A Christmas belter that is sure to become a festive favourite among horror fans.

This is where this writer would usually give you an overview of the plot of Better Watch Out,

The Tick review: a laugh-out-loud superhero satire

Ron Hogan Aug 25, 2017

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...

In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.
