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).

The Babysitter: Okay bear with me on this one
5 December 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Anyone who knows me is aware that the older I'm getting the stricter I am with my ratings, so how did a goofy little horror comedy just get a 9/10? Well, because it's actually really damn good.

It tells the story of a scaredy cat weak little boy who still has a babysitter. One night he falls curious to what she does after he goes to sleep and see's more than he ever could have expected.

A Netflix original movie starring Samara Weaving, Hana Mae Lee, Bella Thorne, Leslie Bibb and Ken Marino it looks shiney, makes great use of it's soundtrack and has a wonderful 1980's vibe about it.

Make no mistake this is not a light hearted piece and is overflowing with lashings of violence and gore to go hand in hand with the hilarity.

Early on I recognised that the film had a real charm about it but I certainly never expected it to be THIS good. I get the impression this will be one of those odd titles like the infamously hated The Hottie & The Nottie (2008) which folks don't agree with me on but I think this was excellent.

A gory rollercoaster ride that tips its hat to 80's classics but brings them into a new era which I couldn't help but appreciate.

The Good:

Looks great

Solid soundtrack

Perfectly crafted

The Bad:

Nothing immediatly springs to mind

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

We still didn't find out why he was shirtless!!!!

There are spoilt kids, then there is him

It's normally ugly people who are sacrificed
