Synopsis (quoted and paraphrased from the You Better Watch Out)
A group of storytellers is gathering on Thanksgiving for their yearly get together. This year Rich, Steve and Lori each tells a horror story based on a holiday. The stories include a tale of a psychotic killer in a creepy old house, a rogue priest who finds out the truth about Santa and witness old man New Year’s Last Stand
These guys are working on low to no budget. That doesn’t mean they can’t tell a fun story that catches your attention and keeps your eyes on the screen. It does mean that effects work will suffer, overall production value may be lower than a mainstream audience is used to and the audio quality suffers (a pet peeve of mine). That doesn’t make them bad filmmakers or the movie bad, that’s just something for you to get used to if you’re going to watch You Better Watch Out. The first thing you’ll notice about You Better Watch Out has a great deal of originality.
I enjoyed each story though the last story of the three seemed to drag on for a bit too long in a depressing, filthy dirge. The second story involving the epic battle (and it is epic) between Santa Claus and a Priest is quite funny and the place from which the movie draws its namesake. This short feature is worth watching the movie alone. It delivers on laughs, on gratuity and novelty. Well done. The film opener is good. Solid story, but the connection to the holiday horror theme feels loose at best.
