Dead of Night: Hull Horror Film Festival presents: BETTER WATCH OUT
Chris Peckover | 2016 | USA/Australia | Cert 15 | 85 mins 

At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS

This holiday season, you may be home, but you’re not alone… In this fresh and gleefully twisted spin on home-invasion horror, babysitter Ashley must defend her young charges, when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.

BETTER WATCH OUT | Chris Peckover | 2016 | USA/Austraila | Unrated – 18+ | 85 mins 

The festive season is upon us, and in a quiet suburban neighbourhood, Ashley agrees to babysit for twelve-year-old Luke, an average kid whose parents are out for the evening. With his best friend Garrett along for moral support, Luke has lofty ambitions to prove to Ashley that he’s boyfriend material, but plans to confess his feelings go awry when the house comes under attack by unseen invaders. However, they soon discover that this is no ordinary home invasion…

Starring Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Dacre Montgomery, Virginia Madsen, Patrick Warburton
