The Babysitter

I remember when this came out a few years ago, and I didn’t bother checking it out — thinking it was just a kids comedy — but seeing that a sequel was recently released probably influenced me in giving it a chance, and you know what, this was pretty damn fun. Definitely more in the comedy camp than horror, but with plenty of gore to make it a good Halloween pick. It’s all over the place, but I never found myself bored, and the kills were pretty fun and creative — and Samara Weaving is pretty great as the titular babysitter. It’s only when the movie finished that I realized it was directed by McG — feels like I haven’t watched anything directed by him in ages. I’m actually quite looking forward to watching the sequel now.
