Storyline

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.

Not accurately advertised, not fun, not scary
8 November 2017 | by bluefimSee all my reviews

10 stars? Are you kidding me?! Thinking this was a ridiculous horror comedy that would be entertaining, instead I ended up being stuck sitting through an implausible, idiotic movie that takes itself way too seriously.

The most glaring and irredeemable flaw was the big bad who, without spoiling anything, is depicted as some criminal mastermind. I cannot even finish this mess.
