When Cole stays up past his bedtime, he discovers that his hot babysitter is part of a satanic cult that will stop at nothing to keep him quiet.

I love dark comedies and once I saw the trailer I was hooked. The Babysitter had me laughing out loud and cringing (over the top gore) at the same time. At the heart, it is a coming of age story...Home Alone Slasher style. Cole is afraid of everything and gets bullied at school. At 13 years-old he still has to have a babysitter, but no one makes fun of him for this after they see his sitter, Bee.
I mean look at her! Cole decides to stay up and see what his babysitter does when he's asleep. He suspects an orgy (13-year-old logic) but what he sees is a ritual sacrifice. And then the laughs and slasher style killings start.
If you like the trailer, The Babysitter is well worth your time.
