A killer disaster

From the creators of the horrendous, tragedy of a Netflix original “The Babysitter” (2017) came the sequel, “The Babysitter: Killer Queen,” and the initial expectations were exceedingly low. After a near death experience with a satanic blood cult two years ago, highschool student Cole (Judah Lewis) is now faced with an even worse nightmare: no one believes it happened to him. And the demons from his past? Still making his life a living hell. The story follows Cole and new student Phoebe (Jenna Ortega) as they run from the cult members in an “exhilarating” chase.

Not only is “The Babysitter: Killer Queen” extremely gory, but it is so cheesy it hurts. The kind of cheesy where it is so bad it is laughable. The comedy was forced, and there were many horribly cut scenes that had nothing to do with the story line. Every second someone’s head was being chopped off, or something was exploding, and the blood was completely overdone. Now this does not mean that the movie was not entertaining, because it surely was. Though it may have been cheesy, most horror comedies share this effect, so that is no surprise.

Apart from being corny, the plot was extremely easy to predict and simple-minded. Likewise, the character development was cliche, with typical tropes everywhere.There was no true substance to accompany the gore and the rating of TV-MA. It was almost like watching a romantic comedy; take away the gore and there is nothing left. However, it was fun to watch and some of the movie was quite amusing, but only because it was extremely stupid.

All in all, “The Babysitter: Killer Queen” was mildly funny, and only worth the watch if you are looking for a good movie to make fun of, because the entire movie was basically pointless.
