I guess in a way it makes sense that Netflix is the home of both a new The Babysitter’s Club, and its murderous step-sister opposite, The Babysitter. The latter debuted in 2017 and featured satanic cults rather than wholesome guardians, and a head-turning performance by Samara Weaving that helped catapult her into stardom. And now three years later the horror-comedy is back with The Babysitter: Killer Queen, which looks like it will be just as fun as the original.
McG is back behind the camera, with a story that picks up two years after Cole (Judah Lewis) destroyed the cult for good. Or so he thought, because now they’re back and looking for revenge, even though they all died already. It’s weird, and I like it.
The cast is led by the returning Lewis, along with Hana Mae Lee, Bella Thorne, Robbie Mell, Emily Alyn Lind, Andrew Bachelor, Leslie Bibb, and Ken Marino.
The Babysitter: Killer Queen hits Netflix on September 10th.
SYNOPSIS: Two years after defeating a satanic cult led by his babysitter Bee, Cole continues to be haunted by the horrific events of that night. Everyone in his life thinks he has lost his mind since Bee and all of her friends disappeared, making Cole’s story hard to believe. He is still hopelessly smitten with his best friend and next door neighbor Melanie – the only one who believes his story – who convinces him to forget the past and come to a party thrown at a nearby lake. But when old enemies unexpectedly return, Cole will once again have to outsmart the forces of evil and survive the night.
