With perfectly casted and acted stereotypical characters and a fast-pace, The Babysitter is a fresh horror comedy that’s a must-see.
Cole Johnson (Judah Lewis) is best friends with his babysitter Bee (Samara Weaving) and enjoys that she treats him like an adult. When his parents (Leslie Bibb & Ken Marino) go out of town and Bee babysits, he’s thrown for a curve when her friends come over and perform a satanic ritual.
The relationship between Cole and Bee is so pure and their chemistry is palpable. You’ll immediately fall in love with their friendship.
The supporting cast is incredible and while they play their roles to the stereotype, they add layers to their characters. Both Robbie Amell as the jock and Bella Thorne as the cheerleader have memorable roles.
Final say: A quick but satisfying thrill. ★★★★★
