"A thousand and one uses for duct-tape." Despite their age difference, 12 year old Luke is madly in love with his babysitter... and on her last night watching out for him, someone breaks into their house. Grisly hijinks ensue! My ride-or-die bros -@cryptkeeping, @manic horror reviews, and @flapjackreviews- are all nothing but hyped for Christmas -and the Last Jedi- this week! So, in the spirit of the holidays, we've chosen a contemporary holiday-horror film to discuss. You know, for all the films that get released in this subcategory of our favorite genre, it feels like fresh seasonal holiday films are few an far between. As much as I love Santa's Slay, Christmas Evil, Krampus, Black Christmas, and Jack Frost... it feels like everything that can be done in this genre has already been done, and with excellence. So when Better Watch Out was originally announced -under the title Safe Neighborhood, boy am I glad they ditched that name- I was mildly interested but didn't think it would be one I would rush to see. Then my friend @joshkmarotti forced me to sit down and watch it with a very promising preface: "this movie will become our yearly tradition". And holy shit... he was right. I don't want to spoil this movie, because so much of it relies on the audience going in blind. It pulls the rug right out from under you just when you think you know what you are getting into and treats you to something radically unique, bold, and cold-hearted. For all it's laughs, quips, and snark, Better Watch Out is a mean bastard of a film. And it's super effective if you have no idea what's around the corner. The special effects, the brilliant lightning, the nods to Christmas movies past and present... The actors -both veteran and new to the game- all bring their best. Everyone in this film is off-kilter in one way or another. And I won't say anymore. Again, I'm determined to keep this one a secret. But definetly go to @manic horror reviews, @flapjackreviews, and @cryptkeeping and see what they have to say about this Yultide blood-fest!
Horror movie of the day! P2 a film that is very unknown and I think it deserves more attention, it's about a woman working on Christmas and she gets locked inside the office, so she went down trying to find someone to help her out when she comes across a security guard who drugs her. Later she wakes up, and the security guard in the parking garage forses her to get in a car to go kill her boss, who attempts to rape her (later in the film you learn) but she claims he was drunk and didn't mean anything by it. After the security guard beats the boss with a crowbar he goes back in the car and continues to hit the tied up boss with the car onto a concrete wall in the garage killing the boss. She runs away, the guard who is found out to be insane and he just wants to spend Christmas with her, many attempts happen when she tries to escape such as being forced to cancel plans. Still trying to escape she stabs him with a fork and runs once again. She tries to get in the elevator and leave when the killer flooded it, she knows he's watching her on the cameras so she calls the cops and why'll the killer convinces the cops there's nothing bad happening, she hid in the trunk of a car, later breaks out right as cops where leaving the killer unleashes his dog which chases her, she gets inside another car and the dog is attacking her so she had to kill the dog with a wrench and now she has to kill or escape the murderer and get out of the parking lot. I loved this movie, what I liked about it was how realistic it was and how the way she act would be the way I would act in the situation I would give the movie itself a 4 out of 5 stars and the fear factor a 5 out of ten, it's super intense, and gross. But I %100 think any REAL horror fan and not some poser would enjoy this film.
