Storyline

Cole (Judah Lewis) loves his babysitter (Samara Weaving) Bee. She's hot, funny, and popular. One night, in a moment of defiance, Cole secretly stays up past his bedtime to discover she's actually a cold-blooded killer who's in league with the Devil. He now must spend his night evading Bee's band of killers who will stop at nothing to prevent Cole from spilling their dark secret. It's up to Cole to survive the night (and blow up a few people along the way).

I guess mixed emotions
20 October 2017 | by orlacordialSee all my reviews

I cannot say that I hated this film, I just don't know how to feel. I get that there was probably supposed to be some comedy aspect but nothing was that funny, and its clearly meant to be some thriller/horror but I just did not find it overly scary and I'm a wimp, I used to think Titanic was scary for crying out loud. A cast filled with very mediocre actors will give you a mediocre film. I guess there are a few redeemable qualities though, I did jump once and gasp for air I enjoyed the overall feel of the movie and I didn't feel like it wasted my time. If your'e a bit of a wimp and can't take properly scary films but want to watch something for Halloween or a night in with the girls and a take-away I would recommend this film.
