The Babysitter movie review

A surprise movie out of left field, The Babysitter isn’t even something that I knew existed until I was already watching it. The Babysitter follows Cole, you’re average dorky kid that’s too smart for his own good. His best friend, babysitter, and crush, is the gorgeous and awesome Bee. It starts out with these two doing a bunch of cool stuff together, and having a great time. However it REALLY starts when Cole goes to bed and wakes up to see her playing spin the bottle downstairs. As any kid would, he watches. Even catches a couple hot make out sessions! It was all fun and games until Bee STABS two KNIFES into some guys HEAD! From that moment on this movie switches gears massively and becomes the goriest and most self aware horror-comedy of recent years. Whenever someone dies it is over the top, action filled, and bloody as hell. Never scary though, I wanna get that through to you as much as I can. This movie is by no means scary. It’s called a horror-comedy purely because of the setting, plot, and the fact that there is a couple of bad jump scares. However, this movie is  more action-comedy than it is a horror-comedy. Speaking of comedy, I laughed my ass off at every single character in this. No matter if you hate this movie or love it you will have to admit that every side character in this was really interesting, top notch acting, and hilarious as hell! It kept the old fashioned trend of killing the black guy first, but this time in an extreme blood bath, showing for the first time the true direction of this movie. They had a hot cheerleader girl, who also happened to be a huge psychopath and only care about her looks and if she got blood in her hair. The strange emotionless, slightly emo girl. And, by far my favorite, the jock. I don’t want to spoil anything, but every single scene containing this guy is hilarious as hell. Shout out to Robbie Amell for really lifting this movie up at times!.. The Babysitter surprised the hell out of me! I went in to it expecting another shit horror movie to kill some time, like Zombeavers, and was pleasantly surprised with some great laughs, characters, action, and a final sequence that blew me out of the water. I’m not going to say this is any blockbuster movie, or in my favorites, but I will definitely watch it again at some point!
