Is it possible to make a horror film in 5 weeks and deliver it after the same weeks of editing? Yes if you are a crazy and passionate guy as Chris Peckover. Safe Neihborhood is a blast of a film, with so many twists and unexpected turns that make you dizzy. Let’ hear it from him directly. Oh, he forgot to tell us that his set design was the same of George Miller’s Mad Max, just to say it…

Safe Neighborhood: Deandra and Robert Lerner live in a residential neighborhood with their thirteen-year-old son, Luke. They decide to spend an evening out with their friends during the Christmas holidays and entrust the boy to Ashley, the girl who has been babysitting Luke for years and will soon be leaving town. Luke decides to take the bull by the horns and is ready to declare his love for beautiful Ashley, a feeling he has been hiding for a while. But the evening takes an unexpected turn when someone, armed and determined, tries everything to break into the Lerner’s home.
