Better AVOID SPOILERS, You'll be Glad You did

Let me give you some advice: the second that you finish reading this review, get off imdb.com, steer clear of any ratings or stories about this movie, don't watch any trailers, and don't ask anyone about it. Just find the movie, and watch it. Go in with a totally clean slate and enjoy. I don't really want to say much more than that out of fear of ruining any element of the movie. I can tell you that it's part scary, part funny, largely surprising, and totally entertaining. The performances are great. I don't want to describe why they're great because that could give something away. Just know that they're superb. Plot-wise, the most I can say is that an attractive female babysitter comes over to watch a junior high school boy while his parents go out for the night. After that, visitors arrive and stuff happens. Lots of stuff. This is by far the shortest review I've ever written, but I've said all that I want to say. Now go watch the movie.

Yule Probably Turn it Off After About Forty Minutes

A sick, nihilistic film with one and only one plot twist. A half hour into the movie it takes the worst possible turn, and you know where the rest of it is headed. At that point it becomes neither horrifying nor thrilling, but just plain nauseating. It's not fun and violent the way the similarly- themed and much more engaging The Babysitter is (a film which is properly labeled a horror/comedy, unlike this film). It's not gross out gross like the comparatively soulless torture porn Saw/Hostel movies. It's not even fascinating as an exploration of sociopathology as was American Psycho or Twisted Nerve (which is the film it most closely resembles). It's jaw-dropping only because I find it hard to believe that those involved thought it would be entertaining as is. The trailer hides the twist and sells it as a fun exercise in the little brat left home alone turning the tables on some home invaders, only with blood and carnage as a result rather than Three Stooges sound effects. That is not what this movie is. Not even close. But that's what The Babysitter is, so watch that instead.

Had a good premise but fell apart 20 minutes in....

I had high hopes for this film. The trailer set it up as a home invasion thriller, and while it technically was, the writers revealed their cards much too early and thus ruined what could have been an otherwise great film. The writing, in fact, although attempting to be clever is juvenile and ridiculous. When you find out what's really going on, it implores you to roll your eyes and groan at the fact that you've invested any time at all into such a dumb plot. And though it claims to be a "horror/thriller", it was either dumbed down for younger audiences or chopped to death in editing because much of the violence, in fact, occurs OFF CAMERA. If you're looking for a good holiday thriller, this is not the one. If you have an hour and a half to waste, give it a chance but don't expect too much.
