The Babysitter (2017)

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Director McG perfectly applies his slick, gumball-machine style to this Netflix original, a popcorn horror story about a 12 year-old boy, Cole (Judah Lewis), whose parents still hire a babysitter for him. Gorgeous blonde babysitter, Bee (Samara Weaving), adores Cole and even protects him from bullies. But after he is supposed to be in bed, Cole sneaks out to spy on Bee and her friends and discovers some unsettling truths. The rest of the cast are hilarious "types," the sexy cheerleader (Bella Thorne), the goth girl (Hana Mae Lee), the shirtless hot guy (Robbie Amell), and the black dude (Andrew Bachelor). The Babysitter is essentially a chase movie, but zippy, sexy, darkly funny, and constantly creative, with a fluid sense of space and movement, as well as lots of blood. Leslie Bibb and Ken Marino play Cole's parents.
