Better Watch Out 

Babysitting continues to be a dangerous job, in this black comedy horror film

Chris Peckover’s darkly comedic horror thriller begins with the classic set-up: A pretty young woman settles in for a night of baby-sitting in a nice suburban home. As Christmas carols play, the signs of menace begin to unfold — shadows at the window, hang-up phone calls, vague references to a not-great ex-boyfriend. It turns into a night of terror and survival, but perhaps not quite in the way you’d expect. Previous knowledge of Home Alone is not necessary, but it’s useful.
