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).

Goofs

The school nurse giving Cole his shot not only violates QMAP rules, namely the right to refuse, but also does not sterilize the injection site as he is so intent on injecting Cole that he aims for whatever body part is convenient. See more »

Quotes

Melanie: [having just kissed Cole, who has a look of shock on his face] What?
Cole: The last guy I saw get kissed got stabbed in the head with two knives.

All the tween horror a parent can stand
13 October 2017 | by lbeattie-65122See all my reviews

All the "tween horror" a parent can stand.

10-13-17. I just watched the new Netflix movie The Babysitter. I have to say it was a fun, campy, coming of age horror that is lacking today. With McG directing, it's a good mix of real life, comedy and horror that make for an entertaining good time. From the beginning you're all in with the 12 year old boy who lead who has a bully, a girl as a best friend and parents that still think he needs a babysitter. Fortunately for him, his babysitter is a bit of a beautiful bad ass. Too bad she also dabbles in the occult. And that's when the fun starts. Good deaths mixed with humor are what make this movie a good watch that keeps you engaged the whole time.
