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).

Funny, bloody and nice
13 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I was intrigued by this movie because its concept is different from the slasher films that we're used to watch. Here, the teenagers are not the victims, they're the killers. The Babysitter is full of good jokes, gives to us some bloody kills, there are a bunch of references to the pop culture and tries to twist some clichés, ending up on a fresh and different work.

It's a nice film, the producers are not afraid to show violence (sometimes they create some humor around the deaths), it's a love letter to the 80s horror films. However has a problem, the trailer spoiled the full movie, I knew who was going to die and that destroyed my experience a little. Btw, it's not a negative critic, the soundtrack is okay, but I would prefer to hear more typical 80s music because that could improve the 80s slasher vibe.

Fresh, violent but also funny, The Babysitter is a love letter to the slasher genre. Avoid the trailer, turn off your brain and enjoy this nice experience.

Rating: 7/10
