TV & FILM

The new Netflix original film The Babysitter takes the age-old question of "What does the babysitter do after the kids fall asleep" and turns it on its head in some pretty unexpected ways. The gorgeous Samara Weaving stars—alongside a cast of moderately well-known actors like Bella Thorne, Leslie Bibb, and Ken Marino—as the titular babysitter, and as beautiful as she is, once you see what she's up to, it's safe to say you might run if you saw her coming.
The film is directed by McG, the guy who made both Charlie's Angels movies as well as the third or fourth worst Terminator movie, depending upon whom you ask. I suppose that so long as he's making movies like this, he's not sullying my beloved He-Man and the Masters of the Universe franchise. I must admit though that this trailer is pretty great and seems like the kind of thing that could actually work in spite of the director.
If you're a Netflix subscriber, you're out nothing but time if this flick turns out to be a dud. My fingers are crossed for something a little more substantial. This dark comedy/horror flick hits the streaming service on Friday the 13th of October!
