After hearing all the hype, I decided to watch Netflix’s new horror comedy The Babysitter. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but ended up pleasantly surprised.
Personally I really enjoyed the film, although I won’t deny I do love a crappy horror film just as much as the good ones! I wouldn’t say the comedy element was as intense as Scream or Scary Movie, which was a little bit of a let down.
Regardless I found myself intrigued by the horror side of things! I thought the storyline was pretty original (as I don’t watch a lot of cult horror), and the characters are exceptionally creepy. My only major criticism would be the lack of depth to the backstory, however accepting this film is also a comedy, I’m not sure that matters too much.
Since it seems to be the band wagon at the moment, I would recommend hopping on. Overall it’s a relaxed Wednesday evening indoors, with a hot meal and the patters of rain.
I hope you enjoyed this short and sweet review – didn’t want to blab on too much as everyone else has already!
