I loved this movie so much. This is easily my top five of the whole year. It's a comedy horror, and it does it SOOO well.

Whatever whatever, horror plot, but every death is awsome, the dialogue is awesome, and everything is great. Every trope they do for horror, is reversed later on. I basically started watching this and went, oh okay...well thats the end of the movie, and it gets to the climax and it builds to that, and they just take a complete 180. It was phenomenal. watch this shit.

I'll give a more detailed review later when I'm on a computer, but that was better than it had any right to be. It was 70% comedy. 15% gore. 15% horror.

Funny you say that because I kept comparing this movie to Netflix's other horror/comedy from this summer, Little Evil. The Babysitter nails the tone, whereas Little Evil left a lot to be desired. I bring this up because Little Evil was the same writer/director as Tucker and Dale vs Evil. I agree with you, it seems like The Babysitter is a more natural fit with that movie than Little Evil.

I don't think The Babysitter completely flips the genre upside down like Tucker and Dale does, but there are a couple of key scenes that play out in a very unexpected way that are great. The Babysitter is an easy movie to recommend.

SPOILERS
Robbie Amell plays the jock so perfectly. He gets typecast in this kind of role a lot, but he can pull it off in a funny way. It was hilarious when he postponed killing Cole to teach him a lesson about standing up to his bully. Also the exchange they had when Cole kicked in the groin.

Movie was fun. I think I had some higher expectations after seeing/reading about it here.

I blame Wilkins for putting it as his favorite movie of the year.

I don't know what I can add to this convo that hasn't been said. This movie have quite a few funny moments in it. The third act is a bit chaotic. Did think it was kinda weird when an extremely hot babysitter seemed to be way too into a 12 old boy, but movie is pretty funny.

I'm probably going to watch this again soon. I do not think I could've enjoyed this movie any more than I did. This checked every box for me

It probably also helped that I had no idea this movie was a comedy going in

He was 14 I think? That's why he was learning to drive. Just as weird though.

Was he 14? I thought they said 12. Was she like 16 or something... she seemed way older than him.

So he is a 16 year old playing a 12 year old. She's 25 playing 16. I would have guessed he was in like 7th grade and just turned 14. I also thought she was a college aged kid until her friends showed up and they were clearly high schoolers football player and cheerleader.

I also thought it was very odd how flirty she was with him, but it made sense later. She has been slowly building his trust so she could drug him and take his blood.

Did anyone else get a young Jimmy Fallen vibe from Cole?

Cole was 12. Bee was probably a billion years old or something like that. Cole figured out he wasn't the first kid and wouldn't be the last.
