BETTER WATCH OUT is an Australian horror comedy in which a young woman is terrorised while babysitting a 12-year-old boy on Christmas Eve.

Violence

Characters are stabbed with pencils or knives, whacked with baseball bats and blasted with shotguns, often accompanied by large spurts of blood. One character is hanged from a tree and another decapitated by a swinging paint can. There is an element of sadism to some of the violence, but the impact is mitigated by a blackly comic tone and a lack of grisly detail.

Threat

Threat is sustained throughout as the main character is tied up and terrorised by her captors. It is initially suggested that the villain's motivations may be sexual, but it soon becomes apparent he is more interested in manipulation, control and violence.

Sex

Verbal sex references are frequent and occasionally crude, with talk of 'sucking cock' and girls 'getting wet'. In one scene two young characters play a game of 'f**k marry kill' about the characters on a cartoon series.

Language

There is strong language ('motherf**ker' and 'f**k') throughout, as well as a single use of very strong language ('c**t'). Milder terms include 'bitch', 'shit', 'pussy' and 'cock'.
