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

34 minutes into the film, Andrew Bachelor's character makes a basketball shot in Cole's room and says "LeBron James" in the voice popularised by a young boy in a video on the app Vine. Andrew Bachelor gained popularity from the same app under the alias KingBach. See more »

Goofs

When Cole jumps out of his window, he could just make a run for it but he decides to hide. He does that many more times.

People, especially children, often hide when scared, instead of running. It is why children in burning buildings are found under the bed or in the closet, instead of outside. See more »

Quotes

John: [walking into Cole's room while Cole is pretending to be asleep] Boy, this kid's hobby must be getting bullied. He's reading The Secret? He's like 10 years old.
Sonya: [talking to Bee about Cole] Won't he hear us?
Bee: With the amount of drugs I gave him? Hell, no.
Sonya: [while petting Cole's hair] Good boy, pretty boy.
Bee: Do you have the needle?
[Cole's eyes open in horror]
Sonya: Course I have the needle.

Good Halloween movie when you don't really want to be scared
13 October 2017 | by Psy-KoSee all my reviews

It's not scary so if that's what you want skip this one. But it was a fun movie with a good amount of blood, some tension & excitement and a fun story. It should probably be seen as a horror/comedy, not just a horror. It's kind of like the horror movie your mom would have let you watch when you were 12. Well I guess nowadays parents let their kids watch Freddy & Jason at 5, but think back to the 70s or 80s, in fact my mom probably wouldn't have let me watch it because of the amount of blood & guts. It does have some terrific kills, original for sure! I did think it was well done for what it was, acting was decent, production was good. The pacing was gold! No lulls in this. From the get go you care about this kid and whats going to happen to him. The poor underdog that we all want to see come out on top. I'd give it an 8 of 10.
