The first trailer for Better Watch Out delivers a Home Alone from hell

The upcoming Christmas themed horror-comedy has gotten a new trailer, full of violence, brutality and most importantly, Christmas spirit. If the film Home Alone was from hell, we may have found the original cut.

Better Watch Out revolves around two young teenage boys who have been left in the hands of an older, attractive female babysitter. But babysitting is the least of her worries, as her past brings with it intruders, out for blood. It’s now up to the three inside to defend the house by any means necessary. It seems like someone messed with the wrong house, as the trailer shows us brutal traps, horror tropes and a healthy dose of dark comedy. But you can check it out for yourself in the trailer below:

Better Watch Out hits theatres November 23rd, 2017.
