Thanks, I hate it.
I enjoyed the The Babysitter when it came out. Watching that movie, I felt like “wow, I would definitely give my soul for Samara Weaving’s Bee.” She was funny, she was charming, she was cool. This movie…was none of those things.
I watched the original with my sister, so we synced up a viewing of the sequel to watch “together” and we’d drink every time someone got murdered. We ended up desperate for any rule to add to the game, any excuse to drink as a coping mechanism for the movie we were watching.
At first our texts were tame. Ha ha, why is the silly boy wearing corduroy? Very silly.
Then we got steadily more impatient, but figured the arrival of the first movie’s cast implied the murder would arrive with them.
I want to take this opportunity to note that Robbie Amell genuinely cracks me up in these movies, as he seems self-aware about the camp factor. His delivery of “I’m not even mad, bro” at the end is A+, and his intro in this movie (Cole turning around and smacking into his abs) is spot on. But he certainly doesn’t save this movie from itself.
Things start getting desperate. A female character is like “oh that’s from Terminator 2. One of the four sequels in cinema history to supersede the originals.” I cringed so hard I thought I was going to die. I don’t know if that’s an exact quote. I refuse to check. A piece of me died listening to it the first time.
Also? A character gets accidentally peed on. Like on her face. And she’s not mad. She just leaves it. For the rest of the movie. I could not let this go.
Lastly, and SPOILER ALERT, the one bright spot was that Samara Weaving does show up for a little at the end. Cool of her to come back for a sequel that never deserved her, we stan a scream queen!!!
Anyways, I hope the actors at least got a nice Netflix paycheck for this one.
Did they call this Killer Queen just to play the song at the end? I’m pretty sure they only called this Killer Queen to play the song at the end.
Also this is how desperate we got:
