‘The Babysitter’ Trailer: McG Brings Hot People and Human Sacrifice to Netflix
What happens when you take the classic “boy has a crush on his hot babysitter” trope, add some ritual human sacrifice, a bunch of blood and gore, and a dose of humor? You get The Babysitter. The first trailer for the new film from McG (who hasn’t directed a feature since 2014’s forgettable 3 Days to Kill) looks like his most entertaining project in ages, and it’s coming to Netflix next week.
If you ask me, McG’s best projects are the Charlie’s Angels films, and The O.C. and Fastlane (he executive produced both shows). After taking a detour in recent years to direct some not-so-great projects, it’s nice to see McG having a little fun again. And hopefully we’ll have some fun watching The Babysitter, which follows a tween boy who discovers his hot babysitter is part of a satanic cult, and they’re eyeballing him as their next human sacrifice.
The film stars teen fave Bella Thorne, Hana Mae Lee (Pitch Perfect), Samara Weaving (Mayhem), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Andrew Bachelor (Meet the Blacks) and Judah Lewis (Demolition) as Cole, the kid whose attempts to spy on his babysitter result in the worst night of his life. The Babysitter also features Leslie Bibb and Ken Marino as Cole’s parents, and hits Netflix on October 13. (And yes, that’s a Friday. Spooooooky!)
