    This was REALLY entertaining!

    Plenty of hilarious and gory WTF moments in this one :D

    I really liked this one too. I didn't really like the bits with the text onscreen, but everything else was good. This is what I was hoping Better Watch Out would've been more like. That was another babysitter movie described to me as being really fun and funny, but wound up being neither (in my opinion). This was actually fun. Absolutely ridiculous, but fun.

    Yeah this was fun, there were a few lines of dialogue that made me groan, but it's complete craziness and it's OTT gore made up for any shortcomings.

    Entertaining film by Netflix. Good job. I would definitely recommend people to check it out if they have Netflix. If you can ignore the fact the neighbors all wear noise cancelling headphones in the evening hours you should be ok. :)

    My favorite line by the kid. "Why is he shirtless?"

    Man, I had a ball with this one last night. I appreciate that it wasted no time and set everything up within the house--the crawlspace, the toys, the award--and made ample use of them. The actors all appeared to have a great time, even if Bella Thorne's performance was mixed, and they kept things moving and exciting with their maniacal glee. I found the text overlays to be funny, and the way in which the texting was displayed really worked for me. It's 2017 and everybody is texting, so filmmakers might as well make good use of it, instead of zooming in on a phone screen. I especially liked the sci-fi battle conversations and the way the graphics were integrated. Clever.

    The highlight for me was the
    car crash into the house
    , which made me howl with laughter. What a fun, quick film this is. And I would do anything that babysitter asked.

    Dare I say this is the best horror movie of the year? I had a blast watching it.

    I really enjoyed this one too. Well worth checking out. Very tongue in cheek approach with some outrageous kills.
     
  9. Not a McG fan but highly enjoyed it. Great cast, great gore and I laughed pretty hard most of the time.
