A sequel to The Babysitter is something I didn’t know I needed, but turns out I did. Like…badly. There’s no cure for the madness that is 2020, but The Babysitter: Killer Queen is sure to put on a smile on your face!

Synopsis for The Babysitter: Killer Queen
Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee, Cole’s trying to forget his past and focus on surviving high school. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil.
Sometimes being a hero takes a lot out of you and that’s definitely the case for Cole. He may have kicked babysitter ass two years ago, but all that confidence and badassery is gone. Now he’s left with his haunted memories and the stress and unfortunate pain and isolation of no one believing him. Melanie is the only one who is there for him and he fears if something doesn’t change soon, his parents are going to send him away. He gets his wish (kind of) when old enemies return and he has to outsmart them once again with new challenges and surprises along the way.
I love all of the characters in this film and it was a breath of fresh air seeing some of the baddies from the first film return. Just as arrogant and blinded by Cole’s strength as they were before. Jenna Ortega’s character is my new favorite, though. She’s such a little badass and you just want to be her. You can’t help it. Especially that jetski scene. You’ll know what I mean when you watch it. I first saw Ortega in the hit Netflix series YOU and fell in love with her performance. I think we will see great things from her in the future. She’s a rising star for sure.
Beyond the characters, the best parts about this film are the hardcore gore and special effects and a killer soundtrack. There are some awesome kills, some that outrank the first, and I was delighted to see they didn’t hold back. As far as the soundtrack goes, this film is worth watching for the music alone. It’s fun, catchy, and mixes well with this perfect horror-comedy!
Netflix delivered the goods with The Babysitter: Killer Queen and I couldn’t be happier that this film exists. It’s everything you want in a horror-comedy plus much more twisted deliciousness. The film drops on Netflix today, September 10th, so make sure to check it out!
