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).

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.
