The Babysitter: Killer Queen Review

The Babysitter: Killer Queen Review

The unexpected sequel of the critically acclaimed horror comedy film “The Babysitter” released on Netflix, recently known as “The Babysitter: Killer Queen”. Although a surprise to many and anticipated for some we all can’t deny that this film is most likely the most enjoyable and fun movie to have come out this year.
The first film “Babysitter” was one of my favorite films not only of the year it came out, but one of my favorite horror films of all time, so it was to my surprise that I unexpectedly saw a sequel to it while scrolling through Netflix. And, I have to say that it was very enjoyable.
The characters were great and fun to watch all the way through, and the good chemistry of the actors really helped make the character dynamics that much more exceptional. Each character was interesting enough to hold your attention throughout the entire film.
The comedy, which is the main thing the film has to offer, is excellent and some segments are even funnier than the original film and will have you smiling the entire time.
The acting is also very good, which is a surprise to me because even though most of the cast are good actors, you do expect at least some of them to kind of drag it down since some are celebrities and social media stars.
I also like how the cinematography remained the same for the most part as the first movie and that it went new directions in terms of the style of the film.
Additionally, the plot was very interesting and straightforward that’s full of surprises and a twist you probably won’t see coming at all if you didn’t watch the trailer.

However, this film is far from perfect as there are some issues I had with it. For one, the characters could’ve gotten more depth. Using mostly horror movie stock characters as antagonists worked in the first movie, but here it sort of started to get stale. The writers could’ve added more characterization in terms of the antagonist’s motivations. They give a very vague reason for why they’re doing what they’re doing, and two of them are just outright stupid.

The main romance in this film is also very stupid in that is very unrealistic. I’m willing to bet that people cannot fall head over heels and develop unconditional love for someone in the span of three hours. To continue that subject, there’s also a scene in the movie that does not need to be there and is pointless. Lastly, there’s also another scene towards the end that is stretching the believability– even for this movie.

Overall, The Babysitter: Killer Queen is a fun horror comedy with good characters you can actually care about, great comedy and an interesting plotline. If that is right up your alley, I recommended you watch it.
