The Babysitter (2017)


McG directs Samara Weaving, Judah Lewis and Robbie Amell in this horror action comedy about a nerd who discovers his hot cool babysitter wants his blood for a satanic ritual. 

Completely disposable and toothless chase flick. More concerned with being cartoonishly cool than thrilling. It pops visually and keeps a decent pace. If this was a debut director’s calling card project you’d be curious to see what franchise he lands in next. But McG appears to be devolving. Instead it works as a strong showcase for future star Samara Weaving; who can hint at sweet, seductive and serial killer within a single line reading.
