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).

Laughed My Ass Off!
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you're looking for a scare, you won't get that from this movie. What you will get is anticipation and emotion of fear with the wonder of how will this end. The movie is an hour and a half - and once the inciting incident happens and the plot gets going - the tension and pace does not let up. This is definitely a movie that you can watch more than once and still be entertained.
