Audience Reviews for Babysitter Wanted

  • Jun 16, 2011
    This movie started out as a piss poor, devoid of creativity, paper thin actors, shallow plot kinda movie, but at the half way point took a turn for the ridiculous which actually served it well, as it began to take on Horror/Comedy elements, which were actually quite enjoyable. A little dissappointed with the ending. Without giving it away here's why. If you want the audience to sympathize with the victim, don't make them an annoying as fuck Jesus freak weirdo. She made the satanic, redneck cannibal seem normal and likeable in comparison. (He was the best character too btw.) Anyways worth seeing for the second half. The first half sucks. Watch it if you want something easy to watch that doesn't eat up too much of your time. Just don't go into it expecting too much.

    This was funny! Pretty ridiculous movie I tell you. But I must admit it was scary to watched what happened to the victims.

    "Try to be a nice guy and that's the thanks I get!" Babysitter Wanted is quite similar to the movie House of the Devil in many ways (though it preceded it by about a year). Both movies have a similar premise (young woman at a small college taking a rural babysitting job at a spooky locale because she's desperate for money), both try to scare you by slowly building tension (at least, initially) in a large, quiet house, and both have similar sources of evil as the heart of the threat to our unsuspecting heroines. The main difference between the two movies, though (besides a gruesome twist or two), is that House of the Devil is just better. It's more frightening, more interesting, and more memorable. That's not to say that Babysitter Wanted is bad or not worth watching. It's a sinister movie that's shot well, and I didn't find much reason to complain about the actors (though there is a faintly ridiculous monologue almost an hour into the proceedings that would have been better left out). The story is simple and violence and gore are certainly present (though it happens off-screen as often as on). The last 45 minutes or so are quite different from what comes before, so be prepared for a shift in tone. The final act is where the two movies really separate themselves, and that's really where I think House of the Devil completely outshines this. Maybe I would have appreciated Babysitter Wanted more if I hadn't seen a superior,similar movie that I couldn't help comparing it to. Give it a try if you'd like; there are far, far worse horror movies available.

    Nice low budget horror flick with enough humor to keep it engaging.
