  • 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.

  • A defiantly stupid movie, with references so bizarrely dated that it verges on fascinating.

  • It breaks the rules until it creates a contagious and festive tone. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • It's good enough for a Friday night and that's it. But hey, there's nothing wrong with that. [Full review in Spanish].

  • The sequel proves there was still a great deal of fun to have with these characters, even if its finale relies a bit too much on dumping a ton of exposition on viewers, and recontextualizing its predecessor in a way that felt a little bit forced.

    October 8, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As a whole, this sequel falls short of the original, but there is enough to keep certain fans satisfied.

Audience Reviews for The Babysitter: Killer Queen

  • Sep 20, 2020
    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+
