Screener Squad: The Babysitter: Killer Queen

The Babysitter: Killer Queen Movie Review


The Babysitter returns…well, eventually. But first, this Netflix sequel to the popular 2017 horror-comedy catches up with the young star Cole (Judah Lewis) now a few years older but even more of a hopeless nerd than ever before. He reluctantly agrees to let his best friend/hopeful love interest Melanie (Emily Alyn Lind) drag him out to a lake boat party when lo and behold….the same shit starts to happen. The older kids (seriously, except for Bella Thorne all in their 30s now) from the first film return to seek out Cole’s blood again while he goes on the run with a punk rawk new girl at school (Jenna Ortega). Our crew were ultimately somewhat divided when it came to this one. Listen to Chris, Dogget, Harmoni, and Aaron discuss what makes a good horror sequel and whether or not this is one.



STARRING: Judah Lewis, Emily Alyn Lind, Jenna Ortega, Robbie Amell, Andrew Bachelor, Leslie Bibb, Hana Mae Lee, Bella Thorne, Samara Weaving, Ken Marino, Chris Wylde, Carl McDowell, Maximilian Acevedo, Juliocesar Chavez, Jennifer Foster, Raymond Patterson, Helen Hong, Jason Rogel, Scott MacArthur, Amanda Cerny
