#CinemaSunday: The Babysitter (2017)


Sorry if you haven’t been able to reach me because I’ve been cooped up watching all the spooky things.  This week’s pick isn’t as scary as it is just f*cked up and gory.


GENRE: Satanic gore/Slasher

I don’t think I ever remember my babysitter when I was growing up being hot or fun but maybe the 90’s were a different time for babysitter looks. Anyway, things are different for our small protagonist Cole who discovers his hot and cool babysitter is part of a cult. After witnessing the sacrifice of a teen, Cole must escape his house before he is next on the chopping block (get it? chopping block? murder?). On the roster of cast members is Filthy Fangs record label founder and former Disney Channel star Bella Thorne, some dude from Vine, and Robbie Amell. Given Amell is in the film lets take a minute to reflect on how this 30-year-old man keeps getting roles as teenagers yeah? But he’s Canadian so he gets a pass from me, a bias pass but a pass none the less.


Although this film was clearly made for the late 90’s, and early 2000’s babies, and of course this generations version of a straight to DVD when it was sent straight to Netflix, I still think it’s a lot of fun. There were plot turns I didn’t really see coming and I’m still unsure if this helped or hurt the movie but the nature of film is entertainment and gosh damn it I was entertained.
