When you think the suburbs, you think safety, but this holiday night the suburbs are anything but safe. Ashley (Olivia DeJonge) thought this babysitting job was going to be an easy night, but the night takes a turn when dangerous intruders break in and terrorize her and the twelve-year-old boy, Luke (Levi Miller), she's caring for. Ashley defends her charge to the best of her ability only to discover this is no normal home invasion.

Damn creepy yet damn funny
8 October 2017 | by Psy-KoSee all my reviews

It's called a horror comedy but I'd say more of a dark thriller with some comedic parts. This is a fun movie! Took me back to the "horror" movies I grew up with. Silly horror. It makes you laugh in the right places and say eeewwww in the right places. Even after watching the trailer I was surprised by what it turned out to be. I don't want to give anything away because it's done really well and I don't want to spoil it. The kid is amazing, reminds me of a young Christian Slater, anyone remember him in Twisted?), I'll be expecting to see more of him in years to come. Suspense is there, originality is there and surprise is there. If you get a chance to see it do so! Sat through credits at the end and I should have known ..... it's Australian! They know how to make some good movies!
