  • Killer Queen isn't nearly as refined as the first film and goes a little too big in many respects, but McG still manages to deliver an entertaining thrill with a stellar ensemble giving every ounce of this mayhem 100%.

  • In this new era of McG movies, you can simply turn his film off, walk a few steps to your bedroom and go to sleep.

  • Like most horror sequels, Killer Queen opts to go bigger and gorier. But mostly, it just gets dumber. And it's really, really dumb.

    September 10, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A defiantly stupid movie, with references so bizarrely dated that it verges on fascinating.

  • With a more unpredictable storyline, time to elevate the characters from caricatures and the freedom to pull from a wider variety of influences, The Babysitter: Killer Queen takes a good movie and makes it great.

Audience Reviews for The Babysitter: Killer Queen

  • Mar 08, 2021
    I'm a McG fan. There, I said it. Sure, this isn't the greatest thing in the world. Hell, it's not even as genre-busting or laugh out loud hilarious as it thinks it is, but it is a hell of a lot of fun and may even be superior to the first film. To verify this would take re-visiting the original film tough, and that's just not gonna happen right now. Maybe in the forthcoming years just prior to Halloween these movies will become a thing; they definitely have the potential to be the type of light, fun fare with strong enough horror elements to make them easy seasonal favorites. It's not hard to see how the appeal might grow with repeat viewings as well. All of that said, back to McG: the dude is a killer. From the moment the Netflix logo drops off the screen this thing is off to the races jumping from one gag to the next and placing us back in the hyper-colored, hyper-stylized world of Cole (Judah Lewis) who is now a junior in high school and is an isolated weirdo because of his perceived insanity thanks to his adamant stance on the fact that the events of the first film did in fact happen to him. Oh, and he wears a Wes Anderson suit like, 95% percent of his life now...so there's that. Whereas future Ready or Not star and Bill & Ted co-successor Samara Weaving was the main attraction of the first film McG and writers Dan Lagana and Brad Morris have more than filled her vacancy with the likes of Jenna Ortega (You) and Emily Alyn Lind (Doctor Sleep), but this is largely Ortega's show as she just absolutely nails being able to keep the tone of her performance in line with the tone of the film. Like I said though, back to McG: nothing here feels lazy or half-baked and that's in terms of both story as well as the visual interpretation of said events in the script. McG seems to be taking every option into consideration when framing a shot and then mounting even the simplest of establishing shots on the largest scale his Netflix budget will buy him. It may often times be an exercise in form over function, but the thoughtfulness is appreciated nonetheless and the emotional beats make surprisingly strong marks. Whether it be the idea that when Cole talks to Lind's Melanie his world stands still and how that is depicted, the random assortment of wallpapers throughout this entire frickin' movie, some of the best examples of insert shots one can conjure, or the fact the film's one main idea seems to be that sex is the cure for everything, one thing is for certain: The Babysitter: KIller Queen has a fantastic soundtrack and is downright cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs in the most appealing of ways-so much so that it'll make you want to "just fucking scream."

    I very much enjoyed 2017's The Babysitter from the very start. The characters had such vitality to them, Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) gave a star-making performance, and it was a wild ride while also having an emotional core with the relationship between the babysitter and her charge, a designated Satanic sacrifice. It was silly, clever, but also satisfying with its character dynamics, and it proved successful for Netflix so they felt, well, why not do it all again? The Babysitter sequel, subtitled Killer Queen, has a strong whiff of desperation trying to awkwardly rekindle the good times. The original writer, Brian Duffield, is not here as a writer but returning director McG is one of the credited writers, which made me wary. Sequel-itis plagues the story as our surviving teen Cole (Judah Lewis) gets into ANOTHER tight spot with ANOTHER group of Satanists looking to sacrifice him to make their dreams come true, and it also happens to also include the SAME supporting villains from the first movie. Even the cheeky onscreen titles go, "Again?!" Why must these killer Satanists only obsessed with this one specific kid as a sacrifice? Diversify your options, folks. It all feels more of the same but just not as good, not as memorable, and not as entertaining. It's a low-investment movie, something where your ceiling of demands is already pretty generous, so if you enjoy comically over-the-top gore then there are a few moments that might make this sequel palatable. It's a movie with a "so what?" attitude, adopting a flippant nihilism that makes the attempts at drama a little more forced and inauthentic when they occur, not that the comedy is much better outside the splatterhouse violence. The ending is also rather anticlimactic because it simultaneously involves a deus ex machina while also finding a way to be derivative of another very memorable ending of another Samara Weaving movie. I didn't think a sequel was needed, and I wasn't expecting much from a sequel, and I got about what I was expecting. The Babysitter: Killer Queen is a fast-paced and amenable work of cinematic junk food, a genre movie that might have enough genre elements to prove tasty, but by hewing so close to the original, Killer Queen feels more imitation than imagination, and it's clearly inferior to the original. Nate's Grade: C+
