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).

Trivia

After relaying the code for getting food, the dispatcher replies over the radio "10-4. Enjoy your Double-Double." As this was filmed in Los Angeles, this is a reference to the popular Baldwin Park, CA based restaurant IN-N-OUT's "Double-Double", (which features double meat and double cheese.) See more »

Goofs

At the beginning, a bully pushes Cole and he falls down. One can see his glasses fly over his head and land behind him. A few seconds later, as the camera zooms out, the glasses are now in front of him. See more »

Quotes

Sonya: [Cole has escaped her and she is coming after him] I'm gonna make sure you hurt before you die, Cole! Cut your fingers off, every single one!

It knows exactly what it is.
7 March 2020 | by MashmarrinerSee all my reviews

If anyone watched the trailers. They will know not to expect anything. I didn't expect a good film and I was pleasantly surprised with this one.

It knows exactly what it is. A cheesy B rated movie. It plays to that.

I expected utter crap, but got B movie cheese gold. I enjoyed the hell of out is this one. It makes no logical sense at all but it's funny and enjoyable.

Go in to expect cheese and you will love it.
