About the Movie

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 (Olivia DeJonge) must defend her young charges (Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould ) when intruders break into the house one snowy night – or so she thinks.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If you want to gift yourself a holiday film that decks the halls with blood, this is one to put under the tree. – Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 5, 2017

Fresh: Seems destined to become one of those Yuletide perennials for people who like their holiday-themed entertainment as perversely un-wholesome as possible. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Jun 14, 2017

Fresh: A consistently surprising and unusually well-acted thriller, which says pertinent things about suburbia, holiday entertainment and toxic masculinity. – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, Oct 5, 2017

Fresh: Best described as Home Alone meets Michael Haneke's Funny Games, the sadistic horror comedy Safe Neighborhood is the kind of film that's tough to categorize but easy to enjoy. – Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 14, 2016

Twisted Holiday Classic

One twisted and effed-up Christmas horror-comedy, if you’re into that sort of thing. Loved it for the Sydney Prescott moment alone. A new holiday classic that’s a good choice to include in your effed-up annual October horror movie marathon, you creep.

Wicked Fun!

Wicked good flick!

Terrific but bad timing

I caught this at a festival and loved it. A future cult classic but why release it now in Halloween season? December would have been better.
